Joplin, MO’s indie pop darlings Me Like Bees have announced their new EP, Songs From The Realm will be out March 30th and today, released their new single, “Long Gone”. The EP is a collaborative effort with the Image Comics series The Realm and acts as a soundtrack of sorts for the comic. “Long Gone” is a song about Ben, a character in comic that is a relentless one man force.
“He’s fearless and has a reputation for being a person even the monsters in the story avoid,” says vocalist Luke Sheafer. “This is the first time any of us had tried tackling writing a song from a very specific person’s point of view. I think really it’s about him knowing that the only way to push beyond his own fear is to become something everything else fears.”
The post-apocalyptic high fantasy comic series is distributed by Image Comics (known best for The Walking Dead ) and is about a group of people who are constantly coming to grips with a hostile new world, all the while struggling with their checkered pasts that pale in comparison to the horrors they are forced to survive daily.
