Danish indie-prog-rock/noisemeisters Mew, following a rather extended hiatus, announces its long-awaited new album, the band’s first in six years, ” +- ” (as in “plus minus”). The album is set for an April 28, 2015 North American release (Play It Again Sam), and features the band’s original line up – Jonas Bjerre (vocals), Bo Madsen (guitar), Johan Wohlert (bass), and Silas Utke Graae Jorgensen (drums). With this new release, Mew continues its penchant for enigmatic album titles. Their previous outing in 2009, “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,” revelled in ambition. ” +- ” will be available as a 10-track CD, deluxe double CD, a double vinyl album, and digitally through all normal outlets.

The new music on ” +- ” soars. It’s alive, it’s vibrant and spacious. Its skewed pop sensibilities coupled with an ever expansive musical backdrop denotes the extremities of Mew’s creative DNA, showing once more a band treading its own unique path. The album was once recorded in Copenhagen, produced by Grammy-nominated Michael Beinhorn (Hole, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Violent Femmes) and Mew with mixing duties undertaken by Rich Costey. “+- ” also features an appearance from Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack on “My Complications,” a song he co-wrote that came to fruition having met Mew on a U.S. tour some years ago.

Mew has proven itself to be one of the crucial biggest and most influential bands on the Danish indie scene, having achieved several Gold and Platinum albums, in addition to winning a large number of awards (Steppeulvs Prize, Danish Music Award, MTV Award, Gaffa Prize) in the band’s home country of Denmark. Mew has all the time had an affinity with the symphonic grandeur of indie rock’s troubled creature and pop immediacy. This unique combination has not only given Mew chart topping albums, plenty of airplay and many fans in the Nordic countries, but also across the world with huge followings established in Europe, Asia and here in The usa. Along with its own extensive around the globe headline tours, Mew has toured as special guests with artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Pixies, Muse, and Kings of Leon.
