In this day and age, everything is a commodity. Music was the final frontier and even that’s been reduced
to a product. Honesty and passion have been replaced by dollars and cents. Bands create a “look” and
write a “hook” to catch the eyes of young teenage girls and a record exec. Cookie-cutter bands and so on
down the line have perfected a product that will launch them into super stardom. There’s nothing behind
their eyes, they’re creating music for the wrong reasons. It has no real attitude.
There are always exceptions to that trend though and you just have to dig deeper than what is being
force-fed. MAKE DO AND MEND is the epitome of that exception. With the depth of HOT WATER MUSIC,
the youthfulness of JIMMY EAT WORLD and piecing it all together with their own dark post-hardcore
sound, MAKE DO AND MEND has delivered their latest endeavor, End Measured Mile.
End Measured Mile encompasses MAKE DO AND MEND’s own brand of post-hardcore that is as melodic
as it is fierce. MAKE DO AND MEND have perfected a sound that’s more than able to convince you
that aggressive emotion and heartfelt honesty are not dead in the punk music that we fell in love with.
