Local indie rock band mewithoutYou recently announced a co-headling tour with California punk group Touche Amore. The month long venture will bring the two headliners to Union Transfer on March 1st, supported by the loud Seahaven and Caravels.

mewithoutYou’s musical and lyrical skill is something special, with intense imagery and meaning hidden underneath their unconventional sounding style. Their most recent release Ten Stories tells a story of a circus train and the dramatic crash it encounters. Listen to the first song off that album, “February, 1878,” below. You can also check out two B-sides from that album for a name-your-price download here.

Touche Amore is also worth talking about, with their recent breakthrough release of Is Survived By on Deathwsh Inc. they continue to rise in skill and in worldwide popularity. Their true emo lyrics are similar to that of mewithoutYou’s, but instead of narrative stories, they focus on personal issues and resolution. After touring the US with AFI and headlining a trip to Europe, Touche Amore should continue to grow on this eclectic American tour.

If you can’t make it to see mewithoutYou at their intimate (and sold out) Johnny Brenda’s show this December 29th, make sure to get tickets to the Union Transfer gig with Touche Amore, Seahaven, and Caravels here.
