Make Do And Mend To Release New Album

Paper + Plastick and Panic Records are excited to announce MAKE DO AND MENDS’s full length debut, End Measured Mile, will be available digitally on October 26th, with a vinyl release to follow.  In anticipation of the new album, AbsolutePunk is streaming the new song “Transparent Seas” here:

“Our biggest goal in both the writing and recording of End Measured Mile was to grow as musicians and create a record that was a marked progression from our last EP,” says vocalist/guitarist James Carroll. “In our opinions, we succeeded with flying colors.”

In support of End Measured Mile, Make Do And Mend will do what they do best: tour, tour, tour. With fall dates to be announced shortly, Make Do And Mend will be stopping at this year’s The Fest in late October, and will be booking their first European tour in December.

Make Do And Mend is James Carroll (vocals/guitar), Mike Poulin (bass), Matt Carroll (drums), and Mike O’Toole (guitar)
