The Meow Meows release second album Somehow We Met through their own Killer Ska label on 29th July 2013.
In the three years since their debut they have earned rave reviews touring the UK and supporting the likes of The Temptations, Reel Big Fish, King Blues, and The Skints.
Producer Mike “Prince Fatty” Pelanconi (Skints, Graham Coxon, Hollie Cook) locked the band in his Brighton-based Ironworks studio to capture the raucous energy of their live shows which have made them firm festival favourites.
The twelve brand new sixties-tinged tracks blend ska, reggae and garage rock to create an upbeat summer soundtrack. In contrast, singers Hanna and Danny have moved on from singing about simple hedonism with lyrics reflecting on life in Coalition Britain, expressing solidarity for incarcerated Russian fem-punks Pussy Riot, and picking apart doomed relationships.
Having run a successful PledgeMusic campaign (www.pledgemusic.com/projects/themeowmeows), the Meows were able to fan-fund their album with pre-sales in return for providing pledger exclusives including bespoke jewellery, original artwork, and abusive phone calls.
The album launch party is set for Friday 19th July at the Gladstone in Brighton, with Prince Fatty and Mutant HiFi playing supporting sets. Entry is free, and attendees will have the first chance to buy the CD, a week before the official release.
Somehow We Met will be available for digital download via the usual outlets (iTunes, Amazon etc) and directly from www.themeowmeows.com - as the band put it: “we are staunchly independent, and proud of it!”
