New Album Info:

We have information on No More Stories. Yes, that is the official title of Mew’s fifth album - those who have heard it, call it a MASTERPIECE (we knew that already). The album will be released on August 19th 2009 in Finland (and most likely this is the same date for all of Scandinavia) - it will also be digitally available two days prior (August 17th). But fear not, Mew will release an EP before that. The extended play will be out on July 1st - just before the summer festivals.

Remember, you heard it here first - we’ll be back shortly to bring you more extensive information about the album.

Quote

The first single from No More Stories is called Repeater Beater and it premieres in Finland on May 29th at YleX-radio channel at 9:10am and it plays exclusively during that whole weekend. This is supposedly the date in other Nordic countries as well. You may buy the single digitally on June 1st.

In addition to Repeater Beater, the EP (released on July 1st) contains one new song from the album, two live-performances and a b-side. The album is produced by Rich Costey who has previously worked with Muse, Glasvegas and Franz Ferdinand among others. Plus - as we know - he is the man behind Mew’s Frengers (2003) as well.

I heard they will be joining NIN in some european dates... too bad they won't come to Portugal (at least supporting NIN).

well the cover is nothing to write-home about, but if the music is good of course it won't matter.

August 25th US Release

Epic Danish rockers Mew don't do anything halfway. They make big music with big guitars and big vocals that suggest nothing less than the beautiful, horrible end of the world. And they're readying their follow-up to 2006 breakout LP And the Glass-Handed Kites for release August 25 in the U.S., August 24 in the UK, and August 17 in Scandinavia via Columbia. (That mutated circus clown/butterfly thing is the cover.) And, going with the prog-like scope, the album title isn't a word or even a group of words as much as it's a poem:

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

Yep, that's the album title. (How about we just call it No More Stories... for the time being?) As if that wasn't crazy enough, the tracklisting features tiny photos of the same circus clown/butterfly shown on the cover as the titles for two tracks. Yes, the track titles are pictures, not words.

Mew hit the road this summer, touring with Nine Inch Nails in Europe and playing the Pitchfork Music Festival in July.

Check out the No More Stories... tracklist below.

I never got much into ATGHK... Frengers was amazing when it came out though, and I still listen to it from time to time.

Also listening...

It's definitely different, specially the intro to the song. I'm digging.

1st impression: quite impressed. Maybe more diverse, happy/uplifting than their other albums. Lots of different kinds of songs. And it seems rather cohesive. This very well could be their best work.

Past the halfway point and I am very impressed. It's just such a pleasant thing to listen to. Very soothing, very interesting musically. I really dig this.
