Official Press Release:
the attention-grabbing release of their debut album, ‘Catalan Atlas’
this September, and a recent tour with radio favorites The Hot Lies,
Adelaide’s MERE THEORY is set to take it on the road with their
national headlining tour throughout November.
THEORY is one of Australian rock’s last great hopes. Their no-nonsense
attitude and distinct, melodic sound has already endeared them to
discerning music lovers everywhere. Their full-length debut ‘Catalan
Atlas’ was recorded and mixed at Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios with
producer Richard Stolz (Bodyjar, After the Fall). The album includes a
newly recorded version of the band’s earlier single ‘You Will Never
Win’, and the first ‘Catalan Atlas’ single ‘Gracefully’’. Not
surprisingly, the album has received rave reviews including a 4/5
rating from Rolling Stone and 9/10 from Blunt Magazine!
heartfelt single ‘Gracefully’ describes a band on the road. The song is
about finding your own way; giving your all, and backing your friends.
The accompanying film clip (the band’s first ever) was shot in June,
utilizing green screen technology and epic effects to create four
seasons in the space of three minutes. The amazing clip has since
received television play on both Channel V and ABC’s Rage, and is
available for voting on JTV Saturday. It can also be seen at www.myspace.com/meretheory.
is available as a limited edition 7” coloured vinyl single (hand
numbered edition of 400), featuring the exclusive B-Side ‘System
Failure’ exclusively from www.killyourstereo.com and iTunes.
