Mew’s ‘Frengers’ gets US release

The Danish band making are new friends

Mew have announced that their album ‘Frengers’ will finally be released in the United States on January 23 of next year.

The Danish quartet originally released the predecessor to this year’s ‘And The Glass Handed Kites’ in the UK and Europe in April 2003, but the album had never officially arrived Stateside.

Now Columbia Records will bring ‘Frengers’ – which the band says is a combination of the words “friends” and “strangers” – for US audiences.

This follows up on their success supporting bands including Kasabian, Bloc Party and Broken Social Scene.
