Originally formed in 2006 in West Hartford, CT, Make Do And Mend is James Carroll (vocals/guitar), Mike O'Toole (lead guitar), Luke Schwartz (bass) and Matt Carroll (drums). As a band that has earned itself a solid following from its unyielding live presence honed through years of rigorous touring, Make Do And Mend are determined to expand its fanbase through its inventive Rise Records debut and current touring schedule.
Following a series of well-received EPs and their acclaimed 2010 debut album, "End Measured Mile", an album Rock Sound praised as saying "honest, humble and hardworking punk rock never sounded so good" as well as Punknews.org naming it "the most impressive debut full-length of the year," "Everything You Ever Loved" showcases another side of the rock quartet's ever-expanding profile. From the driving "Count" and "Stay In The Sun" to the lyrically sensitive and touching "St. Anne" and "Desert Lily," "Everything You Ever Loved" illustrates the band's continued forward-thinking songwriting range and presents itself as a highly contemplative offering that will please fans of dynamic rock music.
Make Do And Mend are currently performing as part of the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. Tour dates can be found at www.vanswarpedtour.com/band/make-do-and-mend.
