According to an interview with Bo Madsen (from Finnish music magazine Rumba), Mew will play two festival shows in America this spring/summer. First up is Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 16th-18th) in Indio, California. Second one is Bonnaroo (June 10th-13th) in Manchester, Tennessee. As these are unconfirmed at this point, we will not list them on our ‘upcoming gigs’ -section yet. Anyway, if these turn out to be true, there’s your long-awaited show in a Southern state.
Bo also listed his favourite indie bands from 2009: Bat for Lashes, Animal Collective, Miike Snow and Dirty Projectors.
Mew have been nominated for P3 Guld in the category of Best Live Show for their 2009 concert at Roskilde Festival. You can vote for them here. And… the video for Beach is not yet here, but maybe this will do for now?
EDIT: Coachella confirmed.
