Make Do And Mend Bio:

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 Honesty and passion has been replaced by dollars and cents with bands creating a "look", writing a "hook" to catch the eyes of a young teenage girl and a record exec. Cookie-cutter bands and 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, you just have to dig deeper than what's being force fed. Make Do And Mend are 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, "Bodies Of Water".

With a DIY attitude, Make Do And Mend self released their latest 6 song EP for free on the internet earlier this year. It wasn't long until Panic Records came calling to help out with an official release of "Bodies Of Water" (due out on March 31st, 2009). The new EP encompasses Make Do And Mends' own brand of post-hardcore that is as melodic as it is fierce, perfecting 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.
