Following a career spanning 12 years, hundreds of shows, and more than 30,000kms in the tour van, Adelaide’s Mere Theory are calling it a day – but not before they release two new songs, and head out on a final tour with their good friends, Central Coast rockers After The Fall.
After The Fall and Mere Theory will tour in November and December as part of THE BITTERSWEET TOUR, with Mere Theory playing a final headline show at the Adelaide UniBar on Saturday 8 December.
To celebrate, Mere Theory announce the release of the FINAL EP featuring new songs Against The Window Pane and Deliverance, plus Searchlight (feat. John Scott) from Walking In Storms as a FREE (or pay what you want) download through the MUSIC page of this website.
Mere Theory are supporting their sophomore full-length release, Walking in Storms (2011, MGM). Produced by Evan James (The Mark of Cain, Pharaohs) with Mere Theory guitarist Nigel Black at Adelaide’s Broadcast Studios, the album was mixed by Richard Stolz (Bodyjar, After the Fall). The album is available on iTunes, and CDs are available at good independent record stores, through MGM Distribution.
Mere Theory guitarist Nigel Black said “One of Mere Theory’s first tours was with After The Fall, so it’s kinda nice we get to bookend this project with our good friends.”
Good friends abound, with Jonsez, DJ Tania (Goo) & DJ Butterscotch (Josh from In Fiction) signed up for the Melbourne show, and Before The Aftermath (featuring original singer Nathan Dalton), Move To Strike and DJ Sonny Burnett (Bronze Chariot) sharing the stage for the bands Adelaide farewell show.
