Boston-based rock quartet Mean Creek is excited to announce the release of their new single titled “The Land of Hopes & Dreams.” Recorded and produced in conjunction with Chris McLaughlin at 1867 Recording Studio in Boston, MA, the massive rock single is being released through Old Flame Records (Cloud Nothings, Millionyoung, etc.), a label that has released multiple offerings from the band in the past. The new single comes on the heels of the band’s self-released Hemophiliac EP and is the band’s collective statement on how they view living in America. The release of the single is timed perfectly for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday weekend and can be downloaded now forFREE through Mean Creek’s Bandcamp page HERE.
Directed by Kieran John Delaney and produced by Lunar Pictures, the corresponding video for “The Land of Hopes and Dreams” was filmed in Rhode Island over the course of a weekend and is a complimentary companion piece to the song’s searing message. Check out the music video below:
Recorded in Brooklyn, NY, in January 2011 and produced by legendary producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., The Hold Steady, etc.), Mean Creek’s Hemophiliac EP is yet another solid addition to the band’s burgeoning catalog of raw and monumental rock. Recently named “Best Boston Act” by the readers of The Boston Phoenix for the second straight year in a row, Mean Creek entered the studio in January with Agnello once again to capture their distinct live sound and energy onto recording. The result of this recent session is the expansive four-songHemophiliac EP, a confident rock statement that easily stands as the band’s most determined work to date due the anthemic and highly-emotional cuts contained within.
