We Are The Union
Unhappy with the current state of ska music, We are the Union decided to stick out their own necks and try to change things for the better in the Summer of 2005.

Welcome Blind Mice to the Family /// Sunday Songs EP out March 17

We're very excited to welcome New Bedford, MA’s Blind Mice to the label!s The band recently recorded a new EP titled Sunday Songs for their Animal Style debut, coming early March 17th - song premieres coming soon!

Fueled by nostalgia for 90s alt-rock and 2000s emo, but inspired enough to create music that’s far from rehashed, Blind Mice make it no easy task to wrap them into a neat little box of genre descriptions. They so freely and effortlessly incorporate elements of Third Eye Blind, Weezer, Polar Bear Club, and Jimmy Eat World into their music, that an attempt to give their impressive style-bending sound a valid description turns into a laundry list of genres clumsily tagged together with excessive hyphenation and far too many “meets” and “mixed with’s.” That’s not to say they’re unfocused – quite the opposite, in fact. After the release of the their first EP, the Comedown EP, in 2014, Blind Mice wasted no time. They got right back to work on a brand new EP in an impressive display of prolific determination, and headed into the studio with Clinton Lisboa at Sound Box Recording.
