Melt Yourself Down’s debut album has finally landed in North America in physical form. The special edition CD is packaged in revised artwork with a hefty bonus disc, Live At The New Empowering Church, recorded at the group’s sold out London show at the tail end of last year. It captures the band in their natural sweat-drenched environment; wild eyes, call and response vocals and an audience whipped into frenzy. Listen carefully and you can hear the bass player crowd-surfing.
We’ll be making a limited number of these 2CD editions for sale in our store soon. In the meantime you can order it from Insound and Midheaven in the States, and the original album from the usual download stores.
Hot on the heels of this release, the band will be making their first trip to the USA for SXSW and two shows in New York. [Please note that the previously announced Rough Trade NYC show has been moved to Baby's All Right in Brooklyn]
