MEW. A much celebrated and loved experimental rock outfit with a career spanning more than 20 years, across six acclaimed studio albums, with fans the world over - and yet, they have only graced Australia's shores ONCE!
Luckily, they are coming back again to showcase their extensive back catalog and their new album Visuals. These shows are going to be very special produciton with the help of Mew fan club - Mewstralia whose passionate support has been so instrumental in helping this return happen.
Recorded and self-produced in Copenhagen, MEW's latest album and the reason for this new tour, Visuals was completed in under a year and sees Mew at their most concise, each song representing its own little chapter and narrative. Twenty years into their career, Visuals is the distinctive sound of Mew seizing the moment.
Mew formed as a quartet in late 1994 and following their debut ‘A Triumph for Man’ in 1997, they quickly established cult status. Their commercial break-through came in 2003 with the release of “Frengers” – showcasing their unique and quirky approach to crafting classic pop melodies. The record saw them tour with R.E.M. before continuing with 2005’s ‘And The Glass Handed Kites’. Their 2009 opus ‘No More Stories Are Told Today, I’m Sorry They Washed Away // No More Stories, The World is Grey, I’m Tired, Let’s Wash Away’ continued their ever expansive musical backdrop.
Their record “+-“ saw them reach the heights of indie-rock stardom, headlining London’s Roundhouse and performing at festivals like Roskilde, Pukkelpop and Summer Sonic and one of the band’s biggest fans, Kiwi songstress KIMBRA, brought further buzz to the band when she featured on tracks ‘The Night Believer’ and ’Water Slides.’
Don't miss this amazing band and show when they hit Australian shores this September.
