Mr. Meeble Sets Off for European Tour

Devin Fleenor of Mr. Meeble is a busy guy.

Talking over the phone, he explains to me that, somehow, he's got to finish mixing a few songs, line them up on disc, and then burn a 100 or so copies before waking up early and catching a flight to Europe.

Mr. Meeble is crossing the pond.

In early September, Mr. Meeble will bring its electro/dance/rock sound to Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, and Spain before hitting London for a final European gig, coming home, taking some time off, and then playing a "welcome home" gig at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix on Friday, November 18.

Giant tours are a massive undertaking, and Fleenor is no slouch. He booked the whole deal himself.

"I booked all the shows, and have been doing a lot of guerrilla marketing," Fleenor says.

And that's not all. Fleenor is finishing up a remix record of Mr. Meeble music, which will be released in Europe during the tour and in the States once the band returns. The album will feature a Back Ted N-Ted remix, though the mix won't make it onto copies sold in Europe.

Fleenor is excited to be in Europe and promises that the band plans on shooting "tons of video," with hopes to record enough of a tour documentary.

And if he needed to prove his seriousness any further, Fleenor has updated to an international cell phone plan, and promises to check in with his European observations.
