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. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

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.
Say your name make a wish post on three other song s you'll be asked out

I am a Huge Friend of Jesus Christ and He like me realize there incredible and unique sound with an Irish backdrop .
if you don't like their music, then why did you go to four shows, in which they played, empirelamp? doesn't make much sense...
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.
you might like at the drive in if you like this band. my favorite ,mewithoutyo u song is be still child. At 22 I can still connect with my 16 year old self throught listening to these guys.
paprice91 : i hear that.
aaron is a lyrical genius.
mewithoutYou has actually stated that they are not a christian band, but a band with judeo-christ i a n overtones... s o there :P Awesome band nonetheless. . . s e e i n g them tomorrow night...woot
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.
genius band
kindakremer
amazing
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.
i love you.
the new album blew me away - they sound like a bunch of maniacs (meant as a compliment) -
i saw them live and they're pretty good

mewithoutYou

fix plz!
this band has a style of their own and thats just one of many reasons why they are amazing
check out dredg, and fair to midland.
Saw them open for Blindside a few years back & been a fan ever since. Jordan's right - I can't think of any band that sounds like them either....
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 ?
i have to agree , mewithoutyou puts on the most amazing shows, loved it, i will go and see them evertime i get a chance
we need the new album here!

mewithoutYou is by far my favorite band. and their new album is kickass forsure.
I am a huge mewithoutYou fan. If you like them, check out Josh Garrels' album Jacaranda.
"hard rock act the Operation"
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),
a flower frolicking(s t a g e props to set the
A mixture of bad and good. Crazyness making sense. Illogical logic. This band is WEIRD. But I LOVE THEM. :D
Saying instead of singing. xDDD
So funny. Wolf Am I forever!
hate to tell you katie but mewithoutyou is a christian band just in case you dont actually listen to thier lyrics. just thought you should know.
agreed, agreed, absolutely amazing no question one of the best
Agreed, similar bands are nothing like them.
mewithoutYou is amazing

...end of story

Dude those other bands are NOTHING like mewithoutYou ! I want to listen to mewithoutYou not CRAP! OMG DISCIPLE?!?! ? ! DISEMBOWEL ME RIGHT NOW! I like mewithoutYou . Correction LOVE mewithoutYou . I HATE those other bands. I despise the music of the other bands compared. Just because mewithoutYou are believers in God does not mean that others who say they are have good music. making an assumption like that, putting them all in the same category for similar beliefs is ABSURD! And I DETEST IT! And I'm

come on! i say i want to listen to mewithoutyou and they end up playing jeremy camp and chris tomlin! not that they're bad, they're just not what i have in mind when i think mewithoutYou . "christian" is no category to put these guys under. get with it, pandora.
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.
Cool. Reminds me of Overcome, and Unashamed- that early on Emo-Hardcore without all the glitter
Tooth and Nail is a christian label. If you like these guys check out thousand foot krutch
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.
is this a Christian group?
this band.

very powerful.

i like.
the absolute best band in the whole world. heartfelt, sincere lyrics that anyone can relate to, religious or not, and their live performance is mind-blowing . aaron is so beautifully pathetic (and i mean that in the 100% best way possible...i f you've seen them, you know what i mean). no words, no words...just amazing.
