I am very excited to say that mewithoutYou is coming to Austin next week, August 17th with Touche Amore! They are playing at Mohawk which happens to be my favorite venue. Super stoked. Click the link to buy tickets.
In honor of this, here is an awesome interview I found between Jonathan Bautts and Aaron Weiss (frontman of mewithoutYou) where they dive into the concept of their newest album Ten Stories. The album is (to sum it up far too briefly) about a circus train that is derailed in the mountains by an elephant, freeing all the other animals imprisoned in their cages. I highly recommend listening to and really reading into the lyrics on all of their records. Aaron Weiss is my favorite vocalist, and writes the most profoundly inspirational allegories and metaphors. Have you ever heard this band? What are your chances of going to this show?
