Boston-based rock quartet Mean Creek are excited to announce their new full-length album titled Youth Companion. The album, which was recorded at 1867 Recording Studio, will be released through Old Flame Records (Cloud Nothings, Dead Confederate, etc.) on October 16. The album's first soaring, nostalgia-laced rock single, "Young & Wild," is below. Take a listen.
Building its name and acquiring a presence that has led to the band becoming a household name in their native Boston, the four members of Mean Creek - Chris Keene (lead vocals/guitar), Aurore Ounjian (guitar/vocals), Erik Wormwood (bass), and Mikey Holland (drums) - delved into their newest musical project with the assurance and conviction that comes from knowing their legitimate place in the world. Recently named "Best Boston Band" by the readers of The Boston Phoenix for the second straight year in a row and taking home the coveted "Album/EP of the Year" for their John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile)-produced Hemophiliac EP at the 2011 Boston Music Awards, Mean Creek have their sights set on impacting the nation as they have in their hometown with Youth Companion, the band's most focused and biggest-sounding work to date.
