Mikey Hamptons & the Meows is a rapidly emerging band out of New York, that may pose a certain nostalgia from the British Invasion, but not limited to that. Their music derives its influences from the classic rock era and transcends decades to sound meaningful and appealing to both present and future generations to come. The band’s latest release “Okay, I’m Ready To Rock Now”, showcases the band’s remarkable vocal, songwriting, and composition skills that leave the audience nothing but wanting to rock!
Their tactical use of heavy riffs and heart-throbbing rock beats reminds one of the bands like Oasis and Nirvana, yet with their distinct style. Bringing Mikey Hamptons’ visions to life, the group has spent endless hours in the studio to release their debut album proving that they’re here to stay. Full of chiming Rickenbacker guitars and frantic Rock ’n’ Roll energy, Hamptons’ new album is made for both the classic rock lovers and the fans of Nirvana, Green Day, and Oasis.
The band was first named “Predestined” before they changed it to “Mikey Hamptons & The Meows” with an interesting story behind it. While Mikey Hamptons is the man behind getting the band together, his love for cats inspired the latter part of the band’s name. He currently has 5 cats at home and 10 more on the streets, to whom he feeds, and provides medical care every day.
To bring their latest album to life, Mikey has received assistance from Ben Rice, the sound production engineer at Degraw Sound Studios, in Brooklyn, NY.
Andreas Altmann as the lead guitarist for 4 tracks, and Stefano Leone on drums. “Each one of them has done a phenomenal job and this album wouldn’t be what it is without their support”, states Hamptons.
Talking about his album in a recent interview with Music Trails, Hamptons further adds, “I hope the listeners of our album feel a need to enjoy life and deal with any issues that are stopping them from becoming their best, realizing their dreams, and who they are. Most of the time, I think people say and do things they think will be accepted by others, and they listen too much to other people’s opinions instead of being who they are meant to be or they truly are”.
