Jherek Bischoff at the BBC Proms

Following his recent collaboration with Amanda Palmer, Strung Out In Heaven: A Bowie String Quartet Tribute, Jherek Bischoff was invited to perform at the star-studded David Bowie tribute concert at Radio City, New York on April 1st. He performed alongside the likes of Pixies, Blondie, Michael Stipe and The Flaming Lips. Fine company indeed.

Now Jherek is coming over to this side of the pond to help celebrate David Bowie’s life as part of the BBC Proms on July 29th… at the Royal Albert Hall! Details of the full line up are yet to be confirmed, but it will include Amanda Palmer and Anna Calvi performing music from Strung Out In Heaven, and Jherek will also be arranging other Bowie songs especially for the evening. We will keep you posted as to when tickets are on sale. In the meantime you can keep an eye here for developments.

In May and June, Jherek will be hitting the road on a co-headline tour of the US with Mirah. He will be taking this opportunity to air music from his forthcoming album. More on that soon...

Melt Yourself Down - The God Of You video
Published 18 March, 2016 by DM

Melt Yourself Down have unleashed their visceral new video for ‘The God Of You’. Premiered earlier on Clash, it gives a strong indication as to what has driven MYD in writing forthcoming album Last Evenings On Earth, condensing the last 70 years into a bewildering and provocative 240 seconds.

"It seems that we are repeating the same cycle as a species,” explain Kushal Gaya. “Racism, gender issues and warmongering are still very much burning issues. It also seems the basic reaction to these issues always have an external manifestation, we tend to point the finger towards something else than ourselves. Maybe it is time to point the finger at ourselves and think that the problem is not outside us but very much an internal matter."

Last Evenings On Earth is released April 29th. Pre-order it on the MYD Bandcamp or Leaf shop. They will be hitting the road to coincide with the release. See our live page for details.
