Mew Annouce US Headline Dates, Opening Band Contest, Date With The Pixies

Mew will bring their live shows back to the US beginning November 30th in Philadelphia and running through to December 14th with a final stop in Los Angeles headlining the Henry Fonda Theater. The band has also been tapped by The Pixies to join the legendary band at their December 1st show in Washington, DC at Constitution Hall.

The Pixies aren't the first influential band to hand select and generously give Mew their stage. Throughout Mew's touring career, the band has been given numerous and critical opportunities to open for some of the biggest names in music. And now it's their chance to pay it forward.

Mew will be giving local bands in 8 different markets on their upcoming headlining tour this fall (see asterisked dates below) an opportunity to submit themselves to be chosen as direct support for Mew. Check back here for details on how local bands can enter to win in select markets.

The band recently stopped by the AOL Interface to record tracks, ‘Sometimes Life Isn't Easy' and ‘Hawaii,' from their latest critically acclaimed release "No More Stories, Are Told Today, I'm Sorry, They Washed Away, No More Stories The World Is Grey, I'm Tired, Let's Wash Away."

Mew is Jonas Bjerre, Bo Madsen, and Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen. The Danish trio is known for their art rock, indie sentiment that's stadium quality. Using visuals designed by lead singer, Jonas Bjerre, their show injects the audience with a dream like experience that lasts well after their set is over.
