“They surrounded me like bees; they went out like a fire among thorns; in

the name of the Lord I cut them off!” Psalm 118:12

No, this isn’t a Sam Jackson quote from the latest grindhouse inspired

Tarantino film; it’s the impetus behind the Joplin, MO band Me Like Bees.

Formed on the heels of the 2000s indie rock scene, Missouri-based indie

rock band, Me Like Bees, was created by college dropout, Pete Burton and

former gas station clerk, Luke Sheafer in 2009. The pair met while playing

high school football together in Kansas; only to lose touch and

serendipitously end up at the same college town in southwest Missouri

several years later. The duo shared a mutual affinity for the music of the

aughts. Bands like The Strokes, Modest Mouse, The White Stripes, and

Franz Ferdinand, would serve as the catalyst to the danceable, guitar- driven

rock that Me Like Bees would become known for, all of which are ever-

present on their newly released sophomore full-length album — Disco Two


Notably, the band released their first full-length album, The Ides, via

Loveway Records in 2013. In 2014, they won first prize at the Ernie Ball

Battle of the Bands in Hollywood, CA — beating out 20,000 other artists,

and securing a coveted spot on the Vans Warped Tour. With their undeniable

trajectory of growth, the group knew the next step was to make more music.

They got the chance to work alongside Goldfinger frontman and well-

known producer, John Feldmann for the There Will Be Time EP (2016), and

they didn’t stop there. In 2018, they partnered with Image Comics and artist

Jeremy Haun for the release of their graphic novel-inspired EP, Songs From

The Realm.

With a plethora of years in the game and knowing their way around the

studio – Me Like Bees is making sure they’ve got your attention.
