MEEK IS MURDER: NEW VIDEO + TOUR DATES WITH TIGER FLOWERS!
I’ve got good news, and I’ve got great news.
The good news is, Meek is Murder have released a new music video, for the Alogrithms tracks “Foo.” According to a press release, “The video was created by drummer Frank Godla in the band’s practice space with a budget of $12 for Mexican food,” but illustrating once again that talent and ingenuity are worth more than a colossal budget, the video feels neither cheap nor boring. Chalk it up to interesting visual choices and, of course, a great song. Check it out:
The great news is that the band has announced dates for that trek with Tiger Flowers I told you about last week, which has been dubbed the “Tiger Murder at Waffle House Tour.” These bands both kick ass so hard in a live setting that you’ll have a boot mark on your butt for a month afterward. Plus, Meek is Murder will be selling the very limited edition 88 MPH cassette, featuring new songs recorded in the band’s rehearsal space, exclusively on this tour. So be sure you don’t miss ’em. The festivities kick off this Friday. Dates are after the jump!
