What’s Up With: mewithYou

Alternative Press Magazine wasn’t kidding when they named
mewithoutYou a “Band You Need to Know in 2005.” Not only did the year
ring in a new-found appreciation for the group’s 2004 sophomore
release, “Catch For Us The Foxes,” but mewithoutYou also joined
national tours with the likes of Coheed and Cambria and The Blood
Brothers, along with being featured on MTV’s Advance Warning,
garnering their first ever mtvU Woodie Award for “Most Original
Artist,” and ending the year with sold-out performances opening for
Thursday and The Starting Line.
With plans already taking shape for 2006, mewithoutYou are
positioning themselves to even eclipse 2005. The band will join
Island Records’ artists Thursday (Thursday is the name of the band)
for the second leg of Thursday’s national headlining tour. Running
from April 25th through May 21st, the tour will coincide with
Thursday’s album release May 2nd.
Prior to the tour, mewithoutYou plan to enter the studio with Brad
Wood (Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins), who so successfully captured
mewithoutYou’s sound and passion on “Catch For Us The Foxes” in 2004.

“When something is working well, you should develop it further and
invest in it,” explains mewithoutYou guitarist Mike Weiss on choosing
Brad Wood for a follow-up album. “I hope to see this album expand on
the ideas behind our favorite current songs as well as move into some
new territory yet uncharted by mewithoutYou – more singing, new bass
player, some organ, electric piano and maybe a little harp, stronger
music arrangements, stuff like that. We’ve finally found `our sound’
with these new songs, but we couldn’t have done it without
making `Catch For Us The Foxes.’ I believe this album will be more
cohesive than our past releases and will continue to sound unique, so
it’s an exciting time.”
With plans to release their yet-to-be-titled third full-length on
Tooth & Nail this fall, mewithoutYou continue to wow audiences with
their eccentric live performances, transfix them with their
unrestricted, personable demeanor (see pot-luck dinners preceding
their shows), and confound them with their renovated vegetable oil
guzzling bus.
