mewithoutyou

A blend of experimental rock structures, punky energy, spoken word melodies, and Judeo-Christian content characterizes the output of mewithoutYou, a Philadelphia-based band that formed in 2001. Having grown up listening to Jawbox and Burning Airlines, brothers Aaron and Michael Weiss initially cut their hard rock teeth as frontmen of the Operation. After releasing an album with the help of Takehold Records, the Operation's members decided to launch a side project in order to experiment with new sounds. The Weiss brothers subsequently formed mewithoutYou with help from bassist Ray Tadeo, guitarist Christopher Kleinberg, and drummer Richard Mazzotta. Tooth & Nail was taken by the fiery five-piece's raw appeal and inked them a deal, with bassist Daniel Pishock replacing the departing Tadeo. The Operation disbanded shortly thereafter, allowing the musicians to focus their efforts on the new band.

MewithoutYou issued their full-length debut, [A -- > B] Life, during the summer of 2002. The band's well-received sophomore effort, Catch for Us the Foxes, followed in late 2004, after which Pishock exited the lineup to pursue other interests. Greg Jehanian eventually took his position on bass. Tours with the likes of Dredg and Coheed & Cambria took mewithoutYou through the end of 2005, and the guys joined Thursday for a string of shows during the following year. Brother, Sister then appeared in September 2006, featuring cameos from the likes of Sunny Day Real Estate's Jeremy Enigk and the members of Anathallo. Another lineup adjustment arrived in the form of Christopher Kleinberg's departure, although he briefly returned during the band's 2008 summer tour.

As the bandmembers looked forward to 2009, they began working on material that replaced their traditional post-hardcore flourishes with an emphasis on acoustic instrumentation and Neutral Milk Hotel-styled folk. The result was 2009's It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All a Dream! It's Alright, whose long-winded title modeled itself after the teachings of Sufi leader Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. Released in 2012, the colorful, Daniel Smith-produced Ten Stories was built around a narrative concerning the fate of a late 19th century traveling circus in Montana, while 2015's Will Yip-produced Pale Horses, the band's sixth studio long-player, saw the group returning to the raw intensity of its earlier work. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & Andrew Leahey

My favorite band. Each of their three most recent albums has been perfect. I hope I get to see them live some day.

mewithoutYou is an awesome band. The first 3 albums are so amazing, so raw, so emotional, so dissonant and yet strangely beautiful. I am not as familiar with the two newest albums but what I've heard I don't think I like as much. It's still good... but I miss how raw it used to be. They used to lean in a more hardcore direction and be a little heavier and experimental with guitar sounds. The folky change up is cool but not as thrilling to me. Their new sound throws the similar artist list off.

Mewithoutyou sucks. I don't care, they haven't got a single good song. Even seen them live four times. Not impressive! I hope you fans are offended.

I'd say La Dispute is similar to mewithoutYou . . . they have complicated melodies and spoken word lyrics as well, they are just a tad bit closer to Hardcore and a little farther from Folk.

My brother and I LOVE this band so much and learned a few of their songs. We tried getting a bunch of friends together to play The Fox, The Crow, and The Cookie, but we can't find someone to play violin... we have a toy piano though!

Their new stuff kinda sounds like Neutral Milk Hotel to me. That's the only band I can think of that actually sounds anything like them.

First of all, it's "mewithoutYo u " not "mewithoutyo u " . A travesty.
Second, Iron and Wine as a similar artist? really?!

First the station played "Paper Hanger" from Catch For Us The Foxes, then some Explosions In The Sky... so I hit skip. To spite me, Pandora told me how great Axe's One Night Only was. Then "January 1979" also from Catch For Us The Foxes came on. I wonder how many ads I'll get if I keep skipping non-mwY stuff?

Pandora probably just should've left the "Similar Artists" section blank for this one, but I'll give them credit for trying.

Completely changed my life. Amazing artists and people. Genuine art. And if you're wondering why none of the bands that Pandora selects sound like mewithoutYou , it's because there are no bands that sound like mewithoutYou . Period.

I like his raw voice, and the lyrics are incredible. Who else can use words like "boysenberry pie" in a song effectively like MeWithoutYou ?

the operation was not at all a hard-rock act.

MWY puts on an amazing live show.

These guys are my favorite band right now. Im always interested in chaotic melody driven music with original thought, true depth and honest spiritual guidance the mission statement for the band. I would more closely call mewithoutYou a mixture of Norma Jean (on their lighter side) with a handful of As cities burn, Cool Hand Luke, at the drive-in, (the hardcore theological thought of) Anberlin. Add too all that a potluck dinner or two(previous shows),

yeah, pandora does a pretty lame job comparing mewithoutYou . . . if all christian music sounded like this, that would solve the world's problems.
just cause its christian doesnt mean it has to suck, right?

I like this band a lot. Pandora never plays Messes Of Men, though, and I really like that song.

I love pandora, but they have GOT to learn that "CHRISTIAN" IS NOT A GENRE. Man, I put in mewithoutYou , and I get every band tooth-and-na i l ever put out, but nothing actually similar in any way to mewithoutYou . It gave me The Kids in the Way, for heavens sake. Come on people.

This band is like nothing you've ever heard... and probably 100 times better then most everything else. Listen up, "christian" artists, and repent of your shallow, bland music. mewithoutYou is the definition of faith.

Beloved worldwide by George Macdonald reading beardos, like myself. The "similar artists" comparison to christian cheese-merch a n t s Justifide (that's really how they spell it!) is totally unfair. Hopefully it will be gone by the time that you, dear reader, see this comment.
