“As a punk band from California in the ’90s, they were influenced by (and often compared to) stuff like NOFX and Lagwagon, but Craig’s Brother always stood apart from their peers because of singer Ted Bond’s voice. He was one of those punk singers who could really sing, but knew how to be an attitude-fueled punk frontman at the same time. And the songs were good too.”- Brooklynvegan

“Meilynn’s Song” Lyrics:

May you always be the brave one
May all your dreams be great ones
however near of far
May life present you open doors
May love an joy and hop be your no matter who you are
No matter what your art
Mei, you follow your heart.
(chorus)
Oh, May your relationships succeed
May you have all the friends you need,
May you find passion in the paths that move you
Oh, when you’re knocked down and lost within,
May you find strength to rise again
May you find comfort in the ones who love you.
Cause in this world of broken dreams
the truth’s not always what it seems
May you see things as they are
May you always stand your ground
Don’t let the masses where you down
remember from the start
you’ve always stood apart
Mei, you follow your heart.
(chorus)
and may you never grow tired
and may you always be inspired
and may you set the world on fire
with words of unvarnished power
(chorus)
Mei, you follow your heart.

Bio:

Craig’s Brother is back in 2019 with a new EP brought to you by Indie Vision Music. Based in Santa Cruz California, Craig’s Brother has long been recognized as one of the most innovative and groundbreaking bands in melodic punk rock. Formed in 1995 Craig’s Brother quickly gained recognition for their shredding riffs, and their unmatched melodies and lyrical content, all performed at break-neck speed. Their first full-length record, Homecoming, was released to international acclaim on Tooth and Nail Records in 1998. And In 2001, the band took California punk into uncharted territory with the release of their 2nd full length, Lost at Sea. Craig’s Brother’s sound has been profoundly influential on a number of bands, most notably Yellowcard, whose lead singer and guitar player, Ryan Key, spent six months playing with CB before joining Yellowcard. After releasing the Epidemic EP on Takeover Records in 2004, Craig’s Brother went on to play sold-out shows, touring in Canada with Mute and in the eastern USA with Yellowcard, The Starting Line, and The Matches. After a 7 year hiatus, Craig’s Brother returned in 2011 to self-release their third full length The Insidious Lie. Produced by Kyle Black, The Insidious Lie was met with critical acclaim and is considered by many to be the band’s masterpiece. In 2017 the band raised the funds to record more and released the song Meilynn’s song. Now the band is following through on their promises by releasing a five-song EP this December with Indie Vision Music. The current line features original members Ted Bond, and Scott Hrapoff, as well as Glade Wilson, Juice Cabrera (Hey Mike!), and Steven Newfeld (Hey Mike!, This Legend, and Brookhurst).

Ted Bond – Vocals
Scott Hrapoff – Bass
Steven Neufeld – Guitar/Vocals
