NEW ALBUM IN 2011 / 2010 BMA'S

Hey Friends,

We'll be playing our last show of the year tomorrow night up in Portland Maine @ The Space with two great artists, Audrey Ryan, and The No. 9. Should be a lot of fun! Looking forward to seeing all you Mainiacs there!

We'll be taking the rest of the year off from playing live to finish up writing and preparing to record our new album in January with producer John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Hold Steady). The album is slated for a Spring 2011 release.

We're very grateful that "The Comedian" was nominated for "Song Of The Year" & "Album Of The Year" @ the Boston Music Awards this year. There are A LOT of amazing bands/artists nominated, you can vote for us & them here:

2010 has been an exciting year for us. From recording "The Comedian" with John Agnello, to being on the cover of The Boston Phoenix, and doing tour dates with bands we love from the east coast to the mid-west. None of it would be possible without all of your support, and we are eternally grateful for it. We'd like to thank all of the people that have helped our band out in even the smallest way this past year, it means the world to us. Thanks for helping us achieve these things we work so hard for, and helping us create music, memories, & moments we will always cherish.

Have a fun & safe Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Year. SEE YOU IN 2011!

Love, Mean Creek

Thumb Surgery, Tour Dates, Recording, etc.

Hello Friends,

I thought I would make this blog to update you on what’s been happening with us, and what we have planned for the rest of the year.

We apologize to New York, Portland, and Philadelphia for having to cancel our shows in August. Our drummer, the man, the myth, the legend, Mikey Holland, had to have surgery on his hand this past weekend. At our 7 Inch release show last month here in Boston, Mr. Holland played so hard he busted open his thumb and the cut got infected, and the infection got into his bone. It was a scary situation, and we were all very concerned for our long time friend, but the good news is he is out of the hospital and will make a complete recovery after 3-4 weeks of recuperation and good vibes from his groovy band mates.

On the upside, we’ll be announcing September tour dates soon, which we are very excited about, so stay tuned! Until then, we’ll be spending the rest of the summer finishing up writing our next full length album. We're planning on heading back into the studio later this year to record it with the extremely handsome multi-talented producer extraordinaire, Mr. John Agnello (back off ladies, he’s taken!)

On a funny note, if you're around a TV tomorrow night, tune into MTV @ 10PM for the season premiere of their show "Teen Mom", which will feature four Mean Creek songs. That's right guys, we made it!!!!!!

We hope you all are enjoying your summer, and we’ll see you very soon!

Love, Mean Creek

Upcoming 7 Inch/Digital Single

Hey Friends,

We’ve been hard at work on a bunch of brand new songs, and it's been really incredible to be able to focus on new material. We couldn’t be more excited about the new music we’ve been writing, and we’re very much looking forward to sharing it with you all.

In April we’ll be going into Headgear recording studio in Brooklyn with John Agnello to record some brand new songs for an upcoming 7 inch/digital single that will be released by the good people at Old Flame Records. We’re very excited to work with John, he’s recorded a lot of albums we really love by bands like Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Buffalo Tom, and many more, including the upcoming Dead Confederate album which we are all very much looking forward to.

We’ll have new music and tour dates coming soon, so keep checking back here for updates. See you all soon!

Love, Mean Creek
