Meek Is Murder Reveals New Album "Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters"

Brooklyn's Meek Is Murder has completed work on second full-length, "Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters." The album is set for an October 22nd vinyl release on Threshold of Pain Records and a digital release via the band.

For "Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters," Meek Is Murder employed the same one-two punch of a production team that crafted the 2011 full-length debut, "Algorithms:" producer and Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (High On Fire, Nails) and mastering ace Alan Douches (Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan).

A video from the recording sessions at Kurt Ballou’s Godcity Studio is now streaming below courtesy of MetalSucks.

The inspiration for the album comes from what guitarist/vocalist Mike Keller calls "the most trying year of my life," involving three deaths in his family, the end of a four-year relationship, the loss of all his possessions in a fire, temporary homelessness, illness, and a critically injured dog.

Says Keller: "In a year like that, the temptation is there to become despondent and angry with the world. But you do what you can to get through the day and in the end you become a stronger dude for it. The truth was always there but I was finally able to make some sense of it all. Life is a paradox: it is cruel and beautiful and any meaning comes from within. Embrace your insignificance and make what you want, just because you want to experience the journey of making it. Everything is awesome. Nothing matters."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Last Year
2. Passerby
3. Dumb As Death's Head
4. Ashes & Glass
5. In the Ground
6. You Had a Horse
7. Our Dream
8. More Always More
9. Less Is More
10. Our Hope / Our Home
11. Paper Hands and the Desert Sea
12. Ghost Moth
13. Play Dead
