MANIA! cover (final)
“The Melismatics are just so palatable that even the most sour critic will have a tough time not becoming enamored with their irresistible brand of indie pop.” -The Big Takeover (New York)

“I join an army of music critics across the nation waking up to the band’s charisma.”-Telegraph Herald

“Four stars.  Seek this band out.  Trust me.” -The Daily News (Pittsburgh/Philadelphia)

“How good are they? The Melismatics have created the soundtrack for spring”
-Pioneer Press (St Paul, MN)

“They might be the one to bring new wave back to the top of the charts” -Illinois Entertainer

“All pop music should be this good”-Indy Rock Live

“Listening to their new album, MANIA!, can be compared to taking part in a spelunking adventure where on the surface the song may seem ordinary, but it contains so many layers  – gems hidden amongst other gems.” -Gimme Noise/City Pages (Twin Cities, MN)

“Mania! is the album that will bring them into the light; saving them from an existence of cult love and fringe fandom.”-Popshifter

“It’s time for audiences to catch up on this talented band”-Monday Music Mix Review

“Manic? Sure. Enjoyable? Why, yes!”

–The Bay Area Reporter (San Francisco, CA)

Happy Holidaze from all of us here at Team Melismatics.  This is the dawning of a new year, and with it comes all kinds of happenings and shenanigans for The Melismatics.  As always, we are here to fill you college admission essays online in with all of the gory details.

We will be celebrating the end of 2012 and welcoming 2013 in our hometown of Minneapolis, MN New Years Eve at Crooked Pint with a very special event we have dubbed “Blue Monday NYE Dance Party.” This promises to be a unique experience with a killer line up featuring special guests Apollo Cobra (Minneapolis buzz band), Chrash (formerly Tripmaster Monkey from Rock Island, IL), and DJ Mike Minehart who will be spinning the best of classic alternative, post punk, new wave, and dance music.  We will be premiering some of our new songs at this show, and the first 25 people through the door will receive a free exclusive T shirt.  Get your advance tickets now HERE.

After a busy month of performing with our side projects and playing the annual Replacements Tribute at First Avenue in Minneapolis, we are back in full force working on our new record.  We are returning to Flowers Studio to work with Jon Auer of The Posies and Big Star to complete the album.  Release details coming soon.

We will be doing a live session for Daytrotter that will be released in conjunction with our new album.  Stay tuned for more info on this as well.
