Just got confirmation that my ears do work. As we know, Hayley Williamstweeted that she contributes some background vocals on the new mewithoutYou album. However, I wanted to make sure before posting what songs she appears on, and can now say that they are: "Fox's Dream of the Log Flume" and "All Circles." I posted a few of my initial thoughts on the new album here, and will add to that: I honestly didn't recognize Hayley's vocals until I started looking for them. That said, they fit in perfectly. Don't waste your breath complaining.
A fan has written in from the road and said that he talked to the bass player of mewithoutYou last night, they will be going on a eight week headlining tour in June, July, and August. He also mentioned some news that I hadn't seen anywhere else: Hayley Williams does guest vocals on their upcoming album.

Further Seems Forever have announced that mewithoutYou will support their reunion dates at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia on April 28 and the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on April 29. Additionally, they have added that their first performance since the band's original lineup reunited, on Thursday, April 14, is at Propaganda in Lake Worth, Florida.
Maybe calling certain albums a "classic" overshadows certain appreciation for a record amongst a community that gauges albums so differently. For this week's nostalgia, I've taken another spin on mewithoutYou's 2004's Catch For Us the Foxes and attempt to understand its legacy amongst fans of the band. Hit the replies for some words and give us your take, the first time you heard it or what the album has meant to you as a fan or casual listener.
After supporting mewithoutYou for a week of dates in early June, Rocky Votolato will be embarking on a summer living room tour beginning on June 25th through August 6th.
