mewithoutYou Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Album number five from mewithoutYou, first released in 2012 and now reissued on the Big Scary Monsters label. The album’s songs follow a narrative taken from a book about a 19th century circus train crash, hence Ten Stories. All told with a strong indie-rock heft, and also featuring some guest vocals from Hayley Williams of Paramore.
Aaron Weiss and his band of galloping existential explorers return for Pale Horses, their sixth record. mewithoutYou have always offered a unique perspective on spirituality through their shared links of Christianity, Judaism and Sufism, ruminating on their religious experiences through ecstatic post-hardcore. After the densely thematic Ten Stories, the band return for what is both their most lyrically cryptic and musically accessible album, one that's far away from the no frills screamo of A->B Life but in keeping with their recent streak of melodic punk.
