After the release of their third studio EP, "The Means: Part II" in the fall of 2016, Austin-based group, The Gents, took a step back from playing live and spent several months honing their sound, culminating with a recording session at The Bubble Studio in Austin, TX.
Under the direction of Chris "Frenchie" Smith, the group recorded several singles, solidifying their transition from an eclectic indie-rock, Americana band to a full-fledged rock and roll outfit drawing influence from bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer, and AC/DC.
Christened "Meanswell" after their self-titled single, the band features a classic lineup with tight three-part harmonies, fueled by duel electric guitar attack, heavy bass and drums.
Meanswell is made up of members:
Matthew Blissard (guitar, vocals)
Jon Denn (drums)
Andrew Simmons (bass, vocals)
Kevin Manship (guitar, vocals)
