One year on from the fireworks of their last London show, captured on their incendiary Record Store Day release Live At The New Empowering Church, Melt Yourself Down return to light the blue touch paper at Village Underground on November 5.
The bill will also feature Melt Yourself Down backing legendary no-wave New Yorker James Chance (The Contortions, James White And The Blacks), who wrote the song from which the band took their name. This will be the first James Chance appearance in the UK in over four years, and coincides with the 35th anniversary of the classic Contortions album Buy. This explosive collaboration was plotted as he joined MYD on stage in New York earlier this year.
After a busy summer whipping festivals across Europe into a fever, Melt Yourself Down will be heading into the studio to record their hotly anticipated second album. This show will be a chance to see the band at the top of their game and to experience new MYD material in all its loose limbed, sweat-drenched glory.
Don’t miss this one off meeting of detonated sax and furious post-punk minds.
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday July 17. Go here for details.

Melt Yourself Down are up for an AIM Independent Music Award in the Best Live Act category. If you have seen MYD recently you will be aware that they are indeed the best live act since The Soggy Bottom Boys called it a day. You can vote here until June 30.
There will be a timely reminder of their onstage prowess at Glastonbury, where they are playing The West Holts Stage on Sunday June 24 at 13.00. MYDJs will be appearing at The Spaceport in The Glade at 13.00 on the Saturday. Keep your eyes on the MYD twitter for Glastonbury surprises.
