The Indie Rock band hails from the heart of Joplin, Missouri. In 2013, they released their first full length record “The Ides” (LoveWay Records) produced by Jeff Smith (Never Shout Never, Trust Company, Carter Hulsey).
In June of 2013, Me Like Bees won a spot to compete in the Ernie Ball Music Man Battle of the Bands (17th Consecutive Year). After surpassing many opponents and outlasting over 20,000 other bands they advanced to the final round. Me Like Bees won the final showcase at the House Of Blues in Hollywood California in January of 2014.
After completing a leg on the Van’s Warped Tour, Me Like Bees finished their EP “There Will Be Time” with award-winning producer John Feldmann (Five Seconds of Summer, The Used, Panic! at the Disco, Goldfinger, Good Charlotte, Plain White T’s) in 2015. There Will Be Time was positively received by many outlets, and Alternative Press gave it 4 stars. Upon the release of There Will Be Time, they embarked on a nation wide tour with Never Shout Never (Warner Bros); spanning from the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, California to Brighton Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts.
They were asked to collaborate with Image Comics (The Walking Dead) and Jeremy Haun, writing an EP based on the comic book titled The REALM. They wrote a track for each issue in the first story arc and released the thematic EP, Songs From The REALM in March of 2018.
They’ve followed The REALM EP with two singles, titled Bedlam and Feel the Heat.
