Watch Mikal Cronin on CONAN!

Watch Mikal Cronin on CONAN!

The Mikal Cronin band made their late night television debut last night on CONAN.

The band performed "Change" from their new album MCII and were joined by a string quartet that somehow made the song even more rock 'n' roll!

Watch Mikal Cronin perform "Change" on CONAN

Mikal Cronin just finished a run of sold out shows in support MCII. While on the road, he visited a few of our favorite radio stations and performed a full set in the Pitchfork.tv offices. He also won an award!

A2IM’s second annual Libera Awards were held recently at the Highline Ballroom in New York City, and Mikal Cronin was voted “Up & Comer” by our fellow independent labels and A2IM members. The “Up & Comer” category celebrates the next Independent label superstar artist, and we fully agree that Mikal is it. Congratulations, Mikal!

Listen to Mikal’s performance at KEXP in Seattle, and watch the band’s performance for WNYC’s Soundcheck. Also, watch a video of Mikal hanging out in San Francisco with Yours Truly. And if you missed it, watch the official music video for “Change.”

MCII is available on CD, LP, and digital now in the Merge store.
