Make Do And Mend recording new album
Official press release: Hartford post-punkers Make Do And Mend (MDAM) hit the studio last week to record their full-length debut, which will be released later this year via Paper + Plastick Records, in conjunction with the band's long-standing label, Panic Records. With plans to be locked away until July 6th, the quartet will split time with co-producers Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, Kingdom of Sorrow, Death Threat) at Dexter's Lab in Milford, CT and Jason Maas (Bane, Verse, Title Fight) at Getaway Group studio in Wakefield, MA. With nearly a dozen songs ready to record that range in subject matter from isolation, to the trials and tribulations of playing in a touring band, vocalist/guitarist James Carroll confides “the sound is definitely more mature than anything from our previous EPs, but overall it definitely a MDAM record; very driving, heavy and filled with a lot of emotion." "It's been exciting to watch MDAM grow as a band. We've become very good friends and the band itself has been a big part of Panic Records growth," says Panic Records owner Timm McIntosh. “Our main priority at Panic Records is to help the bands on the label, and so it's a logical step to team up with Paper + Plastick to help continue MDAM's growth. I can't wait for this record to drop… everything MDAM touches is gold." Paper + Plastick Records owner Vinnie Fiorello adds "This collaboration is an exciting one for me and P+P. I love and respect Panic as a label, and to be able to work with them on such an amazing project like MDAM is inspirational and lends itself to the fact that the music scene doesn't have to be cutthroat to survive and thrive."
