Hoboken’s Mere on Olympic Soundtrack!

7/28/2008:

Great news for one of Hoboken’s favorite local bands, Mere!

They were recently selected to be a part of the AT&T/ NBC Team USA Olympic Soundtrack with 3 Doors Down, Nelly, Sheryl Crow, Queen Latifah and other big names. This is huge for them because we are the only unsigned band on the soundtrack.

“The powerful, hook-oriented music of Mere will grab you. This five-piece rock ‘n’ roll band based out of Hoboken, NJ, offers explosive performances and a distinctly American sound infused with traces of icons like Coldplay and U2.

The band’s new album, Switches and Dials, was released to rave reviews and strong initial sales, selling out their first printing within one week. The band’s evocative melodies have also attracted the attention of television and film producers, and Mere’s music has been licensed by Grey’s Anatomy, The Hills, Haier Electronics and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition/Sears among others.

Mere has shared the stage with international acts such as INXS, Seven Mary Three, OK Go, OAR, Oasis and The Black Crowes.”

These guys are great!! I have seen them at Maxwell’s and other venues in NYC. I knew it would just be a matter of time before they got their big break I even downloaded their album on iTunes because I loved their sound. Nice to see good things start to happen for them, I just hope they remember us back in the Boken when they are famous!! 😛 😛 😛

That’s really cool. I’ve seen them around town- they’ve played Maxwell’s and Whiskey Bar. Their sound is incredible – you got the feeling they’d be big someday – looks like they are.
