ME are back and their rise to rock glory is further evident on this double A-sided single ‘Like a Fox / Rock and Roll Dandy’ due for release on October 8th 2012.
The ungooglable Australian ex-pats have already caused a big fuss on the UK live circuit having played over a hundred shows already in 2012 (including London’s 1400 capacity Koko venue four times), touring with the likes of Kasabian, Death From Above 1979 and Panic at the Disco, the latter tour seeing them play to 30,000 people in ten days. Since April ME have appeared on the bill of the legendary Camden Crawl and Brighton’s Great Escape Festival and completed three more successful UK tours with King Charles, The Xcerts and Twin Atlantic.
The new double A-side showcases Like a Fox, taken from the band’s Another Story High mini album, which makes an instant impact with its rock hard riff and killer opening line (“Wake up, my dreams were so much harder than yours”). The second track is new song Rock and Roll Dandy, a ridiculously catchy homage to past musical glories which tells the tale of an eccentric dandy and reveals another layer of extravagance to this exciting new band.
ME have announced that they will be supporting Motion City Soundtrack on the following dates:
Sat 15th Sep - Glasgow King Tut’s
Sun 16th Sep - Norwich Waterfront
Mon 17th Sep - London Heaven
Tue 18th Sep - Brighton The Haunt
Thu 20th Sep - Manchester Academy 2
Mon 24th Sep - Oxford Academy 2
Tue 25th Sep - Leeds Cockpit
They will also be playing a single release show, headlining London’s Sebright Arms on Wednesday 3rd October.
ME are Luke Ferris (voice, guitar, piano), Damian Tapley (lead guitar), Michael Godde (bass) and Spike Rogers (drums) and the quartet have recently finished recording their debut album with renowned producer ‘Barny’ Barnicott (Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Temper Trap) and Grammy winning engineer Ian Dowling. The album is due for release in February 2013.
