Updated the lyrics tab. There will be some more changes there in the coming months. Keeping busy. Working on new stuff. Preparing to record our new EP. We have three shows booked in May, but none for March or April as of yet. For booking, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Things have been a little slow for us the past 6 months but we already have some big plans in motion for this spring. We have a few shows booked in Pittsburgh and Erie that we are waiting to announce until they are confirmed/made public. We are almost done fine-tuning our songs for our next EP. We should be recording sometime before the snow disappears for good. Probably 5 songs. They are a collection of songs spanning over a year of writing. One will probably be a new version of a song from the demo. The other four were written after the demo and have been re-written several times since then. We hope to release the EP on cassette in May. The EP will include the second issue of the Mere Phantoms zine. Hopefully we can make that all come together in a nice little package. Once everything is a little more concrete we will post another update. See you at the show at Garfield Artworks this Wednesday!
February 19th. Party hard.

SEE YOU IN THE PIT
We are playing a show on January 8th at Roboto with Beartrap. We’ll be playing a new song or two. And eating Spak. Will you be there?
We finally put our track from Toxicbreed’s Casa de Diversion Volume 4 compilation up on our bandcamp. We play this differently live now, but it’s still the same song. Listen, download, and share as you please.
So things have been pretty quiet on our end as of late. We apologize and want to let you know that things are alive and well with Mere Phantoms, though we are taking things at a slower pace than we did over the summer. We don’t have any shows booked at the moment. If you would like to book us, please contact us on our Gmail (email@example.com). Because the three of us have all started new jobs recently, we are limited to only playing weekend shows for now and have no plans to tour in the immediate future.
We have been hard at work writing new material. We hope to enter the studio someday (as soon as we have the money) to begin recording our collaboration EP with Nyodene D. We hope to have another EP finished by the time we record that as well. (We played a song off this potential release at our last show with Ringworm, for those who were there.) Both of these releases will be partnered with zines including lyrics, essays, and other treats as we see fit. We are really excited to finish this material and release it. More updates to come on that in the future.
For now, we recommend you listen to Dead In The Dirt’s new LP, watch Maximum Tolerated Dose and Blackfish, read Ishmael and The Story Of B by Daniel Quinn as well as various writings by Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, and enjoy the fall harvest of squash, apples, grapes, and/or whatever grows near you, if you have not done those things yet/recently.
