Mew: Satellites

Very good news for the many fans of Danish band Mew: bassist Johan Wohlert is back in the fold, a ten-track full-length entitled  '+ -' drops April 28, tour dates have been announced, and the outstanding teaser tune/video "Satellites" was published yesterday.

Wohlert, guitarist Bo Madsen, drummer Silas Jørgensen and lead vocalist Jonas Bjerre enlisted Hamburg based digital arts collective Elektropastete to create the fantastic light installation for the exuberant new clip which was directed by fellow Dane Carsten Balslev.

Elektropastete will also be accompanying Mew for several of their live shows this year.

The Copenhagen quartet begin their concert schedule with a showcase at SXSW (March 17-22) and follow up with a gig in Taipei March 28 plus another one in Singapore March 30.  A seven-city UK/continental Europe tour kicks off in Brussels May 15 and wraps up in Berlin May 25. Finally, several European summer festival dates are lined up at this point, including Roskilde (June 27 - July 4.)
