MAKE DO AND MEND -Transparent Seas video/EP release. [Video/News]

November 1, 2011

 New England’s Make Do And Mend consists of James Caroll (vocals/guitars), Mike Poulin (bass), Matt Carroll (drums), and Mike O’Toole (guitar). The band has had an exciting year thus far and are pretty stoked to show the video for their new single ‘Transparent Seas’, which can be seen here:

 This is the second video from the band’s hyped full-length debut album, End Measured Mile is an animated one. In regards to the video, vocalist/guitarist James Carrollsays, “We already did a live action video for the record, and it came time to do another. We decided we wanted to do something that not a lot of our contemporaries have done, so we took the leap and trusted a friend with the project.” The creator of this computer animated video is motion graphics designer, Matt Frodsham. Carroll says, “The song itself is about the inability to believe in a higher power, but being frustrated by the fact that that type of belief affords the believer a great deal of comfort and safety. I think that the vibe of the video fits those feelings very well.”

Although the new video is for the album version of ‘Transparent Seas’ an alternate version of the song in acoustic form will appear on the band’s recently announced Part And Parcel EP, due out on November 21st via Pink Mist. The EP is set for release on vinyl and digitally, and is now available for pre-order. The pre-order includes bundle packages, varying vinyl colors, and elaborate packaging.

Check out for a yellow with black haze and transparent blue vinyl, additionally with a limited edition wrist watch. The band’s merch site Make Do and Mend has an exclusive clear honey colored record, a pre-order bundle of the vinyl offer, a t-shirt, and a poster.

Make Do And Mend’s last video for their single ‘Oak Square’ won MTVU’s competition ‘The Freshman’, which earned the band heavy rotation on the channel. After receiving impressive reviews of End Measured Mile, Make Do And Mend have spent their year supporting bands such as Hot Water Music, The Wonder Years, Polar Bear Club, and has made appearances at SXSW, Krazyfest, and Hevy Fest.
