Sorry for the long delay (again) in posting any Meeble news. We've been focusing on creating hybrid visual art using RGB lasers, video projection mapping, LED video walls and more. We've also been busy creating interactive control software using Max 6 by Cycling 74. You can see a simple sample of our work in the video below. Much more elaborate work will be posted in the coming months. Also, the next Meeble EP is still in the works - expect some updates later in the year, ok? [...] READ MORE ««
Hello Meeble friends,
I apologize for the lack of Mr. Meeble updates as of late - I'm in the middle of a break from music - I've been swallowed by my passionate pursuit to remove Sheriff Arpaio from office on November 6th, 2012. In fact, I just finished producing a TV commercial that blasts Arpaio for failing to investigate 432 sex crime cases here in Arizona, where I live. I'm not sure how many of you know who Joe Arpaio is, but I hope that every single one of you support protecting children [...] READ MORE ««
Some of you may be aware of my active fight against Sheriff Joe Arpaio. You can read more about that HERE and HERE.
But being against something isn't as powerful as being FOR something. And it has become more than apparent that the only candidate capable of defeating Arpaio in the November 6th election is Paul Penzone. Watch this video:

In fall of 2011, Mr. Meeble played several shows in Europe with Silent Strike (aka Ioan Titu) who is an amazingly talented composer and producer. I would call his style moody melodic orchestral electronic, with a pinch of glitch hop flavor to keep it edgy. Take a listen, I'm sure many Meeble fans will immediately resonate with it.

This stellar review of Nostalgic for Now was just published in the June edition of Java Magazine:
Sounds Around Town by Mitchell Hillman.
NOSTALGIC FOR NOW
I have been talking to Devin Fleenor about the new Mr. Meeble EP for very nearly a year -- since before the band left for a European tour late last summer. So it is with much excitement and anticipation that Nostalgic for Now finally sees release this month. Clearly at a crossroads where Nine Inch Nails meets Pink Floyd, [...] READ MORE ««
We've already got a few press write-ups for the Nostalgic for Now EP and the Star Power video. I wanted to link back to them so you could read the reviews and explore these blogs for other nifty finds.

We have JUST released our new EP, Nostalgic For Now, along with the Star Power video.
Here's a snippet of the official press release sent to the global media:
"The EP 'sounds like remembering', according to Fleenor, who describes it as a more optimistic work than their 2008 full-length debut, Never Trust the Chinese. 'Our first album is the dark aftermath of a real life catastrophe. NFN comes from a happier place - but don't expect upbeat. My life is a complicated, intense and beautiful [...] READ MORE ««
hi meeble friends,
deeeep breath... It's been a long, rough 6 weeks - My video comrade David and I have been working non-stop shooting, producing, rendering, editing, tweaking and perfecting the new Mr. Meeble video for "Star Power". In fact, I spent 2 days editing the video in a hospital bed with pneumonia last week .
Both the video and Nostalgic for Now EP will be released globally this week, and we could really use your help. Do you have a blog and would be willing to write a review [...] READ MORE ««
This is not Mr. Meeble related - but I needed a break and went to Coachella with Karina this past weekend. We hung out with our friends Colin and James (who flew in from London for the festival) and loved every minute of it. BTW, I have nothing interesting to say about the Tupac hologram.
Here's my top 5 shows for Coachella 2012:
1. Godspeed You Black Emperor
2. Modeselektor w/ Thom Yorke
Honorable mention: Amon Tobin for his mind blowing architectural [...] READ MORE ««
The United States congress is attempting to pass atrocious legislation named the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). If you are unaware of these bills and their consequences, please watch this video:
This new legislation would institute a China-like censorship regime in the United States, whereby the Department of Justice could force search engines, browsers, and service providers to block users' access to websites, and scrub the American Internet [...] READ MORE ««
Hi friends – it is time to begin sorting out the merchandise that needs to be sent out to those who donated to the tour but never came to one of our shows to collect. The EP will be sent out as soon as it is finished (the next few weeks). For those of you who are owed a t-shirt, I need to know what size and style you want. So, please leave a comment below, or contact us.
For the past couple weeks, I've been recuperating from being sick, let lag, and mental fatigue from an amazing, gargantuan, and arduous European tour. I plan on sharing with you more about my experiences and lessons learned soon - once I get a bit more grounded and manage some real life situations. Until then, you can read a little about the tour here in this New Times article:

I wanted to apologize for the lack of tour updates - things have been crazy busy, with a lot of good and a lot of bad along the way. As soon as I get some extra time, I will try to post some of the bizarre and amusing events that have transpired.
The good news: Our show in Cluj-Napoca, Romania was amazing! Full venue - positive energy - people singing our song lyrics aloud - all around the best show we've played...
The bad news: Touring Europe is MUCH harder than we ever [...] READ MORE ««
