Skeletons in the Piano have been on a tear - playing live on WEQX, acoustic set @ Cafe Lena, rocking the Bayou and totally killing it at their release party this past Saturday, May 11th @ Saratoga's PUTNAM DEN with Linear North and Brooklyn's The End Men opening the show. We have seen a lot of shows over the years, I've personally been involved with many great bands, projects and people -- hands down with great confidence we can say that Skeletons in the Piano are on their way to great things.
At MER we've purposely declined to get heavily involved in advertising the label and hounding stations and media to run our stories and promote our bands. Instead we've decidedly opted for a label and artists founded on an organic following and reputation for delivering the goods with integrity and high levels of artistic ability. Skeletons in the Piano embody both and we are thrilled to offer up their debut with the label, "Please Don't Die" on 180 gram vinyl. Limited to 300 copies - 200 Swamp Green/ Sea Blue Color in Color Vinyl LPs & 100 White Vinyl all 180 gram and all MINT!
Available at Bandcamp, FRSTS.COM, iTunes, etc..., etc...
Sample the track "Oh, Rose" and head over to FRSTS or Bandcamp and grab a LP [all LPs come with a download card]

The record is heavily influenced by many classic artists, and while Skeletons in the Piano are certainly maintain a very distinct sound we believe fans of Mark Lanegan, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Alice in Chains, Mad Season, and Jimi Hendrix will easily fall in love with Skeletons.
