Performing the Music of R.E.M.
N.E.W. Athens is a band dedicated to performing the music of R.E.M. The band includes four veteran musicians who have come together to honor one of the great American bands. The name N.E.W. athens pays tribute to Athens, GA., where R.E.M. was formed. N.E.W. athens' set list covers a wide range of R.E.M.'s work focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the band's earliest albums. Lifelong R.E.M. fans and new fans will hear great music and have a great time.
