Artist, Andrew Barnhart, has just finished up the first piece in a series of portraits of the band. Obviously this one features Aaron and is based on some imagery from “In A Market Dimly Lit” and “Orange Spider.”
Apparently Rickie’s image is next in line and it might have something to do with a Porcupine. We’ll see.

Boris De Saint Jore has a fan-made video for Messes of Men by compiling live footage from YouTube. The result: an exciting and kinetic escape into the mind’s eye of the collective concert-goer’s consciousness. Either that, or a fun experiment. Great work!
From the PropertyOfZack website:
PropertyOfZack had the chance to speak to Rick from mewithoutYou just last week for one of our best interviews in a long time. Rick and I discussed how the band’s new album is coming along, how important it is to make the right decisions, leaving Tooth & Nail Records, potentially self-releasing their new record, and so much more. Read up and enjoy!
Earlier this Spring when the band was opening up for Further Seems Forever in Boston, we met up with a gentleman named Robert Ribera and shot some video of us playing a couple acoustic versions of songs: Two from “It’s All Crazy!” and one from “Brother, Sister.” If you have time check’em out.

We are back in Philadelphia for only a night…
Joe Jackson’s “Stepping Out” has been on repeat since I woke up today. Like a long lost dream it came back to me all at once. Totally jamming.
Even though we have only been on the road for a week or so, with all the bus problems and floor crashing, this city was a sight for sore eyes; even if I did drop my post show buffalo chicken sandwich which was slathered with toppings on the back floor of my dads van (which he just cleaned). My old man makes the haul, he told Beaver last night that he has seen over forty mewithoutYou shows, that’s dedication right there.
Speaking of dedication… (more…)
Who’d of thought Akron Ohio’s crowd could rival anybody else in the states? Not me. Though I love them dearly because they always come out in droves, much to my surprise, the audience tonight steered the vibe of the show, made it fun to be on a stage and play music. Thank you Akron. You were all wonderful. We did two new songs tonight, one was a live debut and you know, technical problems aside, it sounded rad and overall the show was awesome. Sometimes I feel like the luckiest dude alive. Even post show, getting to say hi and talk to some awesome dudes and gals, it is a pleasure and it means the world when people just want to say hi and what’s up. Tonight I was wolfing out and tried to explain to people that I have a rush from playing that takes about an hour to settle after the show, my adrenalin is through the roof for serious, I feel like a maniac and like I want to strangle a dude even though I am not really that violent. So, if you ever catch me after the show and I am finicky and jumpy and looking around and acting like a wild man, it’s the post show stress coming down. For the most part, this only happens if the show is totally physical and righteous. I get so excited! (more…)
