XMELT Is Playing At EastBurn – Tonight!

We are playing tonight at 11 pm, with our Friends A Certain Smile, who play at 10 pm. We’ll literally be rocking the house at EastBurn Public House. 21 and over only, suggested donation: $5. If you’ve seen us before, come check out our new sound with our rad, new bass player! Her name is Melissa and she’s great!

The show tonight is for our new single called, “We Won’t Go Back!” which is a song we wrote in reaction to the 2016 election. It’s a political anthem song about not going back in time under the Trump administration.  Give it a listen here:

If you can’t make the show, but would like to purchase this song, you can do so here.

Otherwise, we hope to see you tonight!

Love and bruises,

Music, Bumps and Bruises

Yesterday we had band practice, which was hot, but totally fun, as always. We were pretty tired afterward so we went to sit in the grass, to talk and we took a few photos. Then Tuesday, our drummer (the redhead) suggested that we play some songs that we’d never played before acoustically.

So we started singing songs. Tonya on guitar and freestyle rap (she’s the one in the middle with the dark hair), Tuesday on snaps and you know me, always the loudest singer (I’m on the right with the lacy dress). I think I sing for all three of us.

Here is a recording of us from last night, that we only started recording halfway through, but you get the idea. This sounds nothing like our band typically does. Normally, we are so loud and I’m screaming, so this was a fun treat to strip it all down.

We we...

XMELT – Name Changer

Name Changer

You may have noticed that we changed our name from Melt to XMELT, but fear not. We’re still called “Melt” the “X” is silent!

Why would we do something so strange?

Name competition.

Another band named Melt that is a local, PDX band contacted us and said that they were Melt first and that we ought to change our name. The truth is, we didn’t know about them until pretty late in the game. How we didn’t know of them, I’m not sure, but we didn’t.

Our band could totally understand the other band’s position – not wanting to be confused with another band – we didn’t want that either, but we also loved the name and didn’t want to give it up.

We tried on other band names for months. Nothing stuck.

We were getting irritated about the idea of band names after awhile...
