Releasing their first EP ‘There will be Time’ in 2015, indie rock band Me Like Bees is taking a very different path with their latest EP ‘Songs from the Realm’. Collaborating with comic book Jeremy Haun, the band is creating an epic music journey to accompany Haun’s latest comic “The Realm”, being released by Image Comics. Their new single, “Long Gone” is about one of the characters from the comics named Ben, who is described as being, “a relentless one-man force… he is fearless and has a reputation for being a person even the monsters in the story avoid.”
Opening with a bit of synths, quickly followed by bass and guitar, the beat creates an epic hero’s entrance. You can almost imagine the character of Ben entering the frame, weapon by his side as he faces down monsters in this post-apocalyptic high fantasy comic. A little “shoot ’em up” western in feel but completely rock, the song concludes with a high guitar note.

Men Like Bees have created the perfect accompaniment for the comic series, which fans will be able to listen to soon as they release their latest EP on March 30th.
