MEEK IS MURDER – Footage of the Band Tracking in the Studio

Last week we brought you a kind of silly, fun, in-studio video from Meek is Murder.  It was cool, but only had a wee baby bit of actual music in it, more just some words about the experience of recording and zany antics. Well, today we get to the meat of the matter.


In this video, they get straight to the point. In fact, with mostly sub-90 second songs, this band is all about getting to the point. In fact, they probably should have changed the name of the band to Get To The Point. Unless that’s already taken.

Actually, I bet if the band is reading this now, they’ll probably be annoyed that I’ve even taken this long to introduce the video. It’s probably taken you longer to read this than it will to watch the damn thing. Could you please watch it twice so that I feel better about myself? Thanks.

Here’s some information about their upcoming release(s) Onward/Into the Sun, from which the song above is taken:

Meek Is Murder’s third full-length album, the aptly titled Onward/Into the Sun, sees the band team up with Rising Pulse Records, the label founded by Candiria guitarist and fellow Brooklynite John Lamacchia. Out May 5th on Rising Pulse, the album is a collection of two separate EPs: the brand new Onward and 2012’s Into the Sun Where It Falls Off the Sky.

Onward was recorded by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Magrudergrind) at Developing Nations, while Into the Sun… was engineered and mixed by Kevin Antreassian (East of the Wall, Gridlink), produced by Jesse Korman of The Number Twelve Looks Like You, and released digitally by the band in 2012. Both EPs were mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Mastodon).
