Biography

MUMBLE NEWS IS A BOSTON BASED BAND MAKING THEIR
WAY INTO THE SCENE WITH A COMBINATION OF ENGAGING,
ENERGETIC LIVE PERFORMANCES AND A HUMBLE DO-IT-

PROMOTION OF BOTH THEMSELVES AND OTHER ARTISTS,
AND BRINGING TO THE TABLE THE MOST INTOXICATING
CONCENTRATION OF BOLD MUSIC AND DESIGN POSSIBLE.
MUMBLE NEWS DIGITALLY RELEASED THEIR FIRST SINGLE,
ELLIS ISLAND, IN EARLY OCTOBER AND IS IN THE PROCESS
OF RECORDING AN EP TO BE RELEASED IN EARLY FEBRUARY.
THEY HAVE RECEIVED FREQUENT AIRPLAY ON SEVERAL COLLEGE INTERNET RADIO NETWORKS THROUGHOUT THE NORTHEAST. THE BAND HAS PLAYED
BOTH COMMUNITY SHOWS AS WELL AS PERFORMED
CROWDED BUT INTIMATE SHOWS IN COMMERCIAL VENUES.
IN FEBRUARY THEY WILL PLAY THE BERKLEE PERFORMANCE CENTER FOR THE NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL, AND OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS WILL PLAY SHOWS AT COLLEGES AND VARIOUS VENUES IN THE NORTHEAST TO SPREAD THEIR WORD.

Lyrics

Ellis Island

Written By: katie von

a sordid dream, dull weeks at sea
the blundering wet cough of the waves

things seemed insane in Germany
and golden great America saves

since proving our loyalty was the case
oh, the changed our name.

the backs we bent for property
the lips we curled and lay to new phrase

as we slowly shied away from poverty,
and backed away from Europe's embrace

the world shows all things how to
know their place
and oh, they changed our name.

i try my hand at everything
i've damned myself with youth's
destructive stain
and as my blood courses 'gainst the grain,
history repeats all the same.

the world shows all things how to know their place,
and oh, they changed our name.
