New Melt Yourself Down live video and live concert broadcast
Published 5 December 2013 by BWL

Melt Yourself Down have released a new live video for 'Release!', filmed at the band's sweat-drenched album launch at Electrowerkz in London back in June. The clip was filmed by the same team who produced the 'Camel' video earlier in the year.

MYD have just completed a short and riotous UK tour, with highlights including a moshpit in Leeds, a crowd surfing bassist and stage invasion in London, and, by all accounts, total mayhem in Bristol...

The band will make their French live debut tomorrow night (Friday Dec 6, or rather, on Saturday morning at 2.40am local time). The performance will be broadcast live on Radio France‚Äôs Le Mouv’. They’re also playing in Italy next week for the first time. See all the shows on our live page.

MYD will return in the spring with new material and more late night club events like the sold out show in Hackney last week. Prepare yourself by checking the video clip above...

Their first confirmed festival appearance of 2014 will be Where The Wild Things Are in the Netherlands in July. Plenty more TBC.

Blood Donation was released last month through Moshi Moshi. What with that and her extraordinary performance in Ben Frost's adaptation of 'The Wasp Factory', she's been keeping busy...

Check the brilliant Prins Thomas remix of 'Invisible Giving':

Meanwhile hubby Andreas Werliin's prolific career with Mats Gustafsson and Johan Berthling as Fire! recently yielded its second album of 2013 in the form of the scorching (Without Noticing), which we highly recommend!
