OKLAHOMA CITY – With a new album ready to launch on May 20 (Tomorrow in Progress), and a new single, Buddy Dash, already spinning online, Bartlesville-born alternative-rock godfather and former Defenestration and Chainsaw Kittens frontman Tyson Meade – now an English teacher in the People’s Republ. 19 June 2013 ·.

Tyson Meade is raising funds for Tyson Meade Records an Album in China on Kickstarter! I am recording an album in China at high schools and universities using student musicians. This will be the first album in nearly 10 years for Meade, who has been living and teaching in Shanghai for the past 5 years. Meade walked away from a fulltime career in the music business in 1996 (just briefly popping up here and there since that time) after feeling like his creative well had run dry. "I had lost my inspiration to write songs," he explains. Maybe the fire was gone.
Tyson Todd Meade, formerly of the Chainsaw Kittens and Defenestration, comes into his own with this exclusive and entirely new 7' on Jett Plastic Recordings! The A-Side of the 7', 'Stay Alone (For Haffijy),' was recorded during Meade's recent trip to Shanghai, where he encountered young violin prodigy Haffijy, re-awakening Meade's passion for music. The B-Side of the 7', 'He's The Candy,' is a version exclusive to this 7' record. While the song will appear in an alternate form on Meade's forthcoming (and as of now, untitled) album, this raucous version features Meade playing every instrument. Yup. Grip this new 7' by the renowned 'Godfather of Alternative Rock' before it's gone, and be sure to look for more projects between Meade and JPR in the near future! 7' in poly sleeve, pink vinyl. Stay Alone (For Haffijy) 5:54. He's The Candy (A Theme) 2:37.
This lovely album is a fever dream, an emotional travelogue, a slice of pop history that is also very NOW. Written in the wilds of Shanghai, the constraints of Saudi Arabia and the familiarity of Oklahoma, Tomorrow in Progress is simultaneously far reaching and still very close to the bone. He is not a close friend, but a friend nonetheless. I met him a long time ago when he used to sell me records at a record store and I have recently connected with him through social media and a love of music. When I found out he was moving back to the states and recording music, I decided to start a fanclub and reached out to him on the internet.
