What the critics are saying about MANIA!
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 (Dubuque, IA)

“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 (Indianapolis, IN)

“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

“You like the Melismatics. You may not know it, but you like them.” -Vocals On Top

Hallå, god dag.

Spring has arrived (in its own weird way) here in the unpredictable-yet-beautiful Minnesnowta, and The Melismatics have lots of exciting news to drop on all y’all.  Well, let’s get this started…

First off, our forthcoming album “Rising Tide” is slated for world-wide release on!  Once again, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing people in the creation of this LP, and we’d like to thank Jon Auer (of The Posies, Big Star), John Fields, Chris Athens, Peter Anderson, and all of our Kickstarter contributors for making this happen!

As always, check our tour dates below to see when we’ll be at a venue near you.  In addition to our club dates, we also will be playing some festivals and other outdoor events.  We return to the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI as headliners on the K-Nation Entertainment/Cascio Interstate Music Stage Thursday, June 27th at 9:00PM.   We will also be playing UMS Festival in Denver, CO Saturday, July 20th at Skylark Lounge.  In Stillwater, MN we will be playing Rock The Vine, a benefit for Rock The Cause Saturday, June 8th.  Get your tickets for Rock The Vine here!

Speaking of Rock The Cause, The Melismatics’ song “Digging Deep” (from The Acid Test) has recently become the theme song for the weekly radio show “Cause Rock” on Cities 97, a major commercial radio station in the Twin Cities, MN.  The program can be streamed from anywhere Sundays 10PM CST.

Lastly, we’ve been filling our time in the tour van making some new videos that are now up on Youtube.  Check it out to see what happens to your brain on tour.
