Me Like Bees debuts New Album – The Ides


One of the cool things about my job is that I can simply open an email and be introduced to something enjoyable and new. Happiness and entertainment hand delivered via a Soundcloud link. Such a gift arrived in my inbox today. Me Like Bees is a refreshing group of musicians producing songs that carry infectious melodies and quirky lyrics that stick with you long after the tune comes to an end. My personal favorite on this debut album is Brand New Fall, I mean to tell you, I LOVE THIS SONG! The lyrics paint pictures and the music carries you down the road…give it a listen, it will change you.

Here’s the press release that came along with my gift in the email today:

July 9th, 2013 – Joplin, MO – ME LIKE BEES, indie up-and-comers hailing from the Southwest Missouri alt-rock scene, have just released “The Ides”, their full-length, debut effort. The 14 track LP is being released through LoveWay Records and is available now on iTunes and Amazon.

After much praise for earlier single releases, such as “Naked Trees”, a track released for charitable contribution in response to the tragic 2011 tornado that devastated much of their hometown, ME LIKE BEES have spent time developing their catchy, yet introspective sound and songwriting approach while appealing to fans with the playfully magnetic energy of their live performances, all culminating now with the release of “The Ides”. Preview the album and check out the official video for the title track, below!
