City Ghosts

We have a number of songs on our new album that are based on real life events. City Ghosts is a song about a broken relationship between friends, then you don’t see that person anymore. Until one day when you bump into that person and you both startle like you’ve seen a ghost. That is your City Ghost. We all have them.

This drawing was done by Brooke, Tonya’s sister and our new bandmate!

These are the lyrics:

Aha . . . Aha . . .

New Bandmates

We have new bandmates! We have had a few members come and go over the last year or so, but now we have a couple of amazing ladies playing with us! What is so amazing about these women? Well, for one they didn’t play the instruments they play in the band before they started playing with us, but they loved our band and us so much they decided to learn the instruments and they are KILLING IT!

So who are these new members? One is Tonya Breaux’s little sister Brooke. The other member is Brooke’s wife, Rachel. Brooke plays the bass and Rachel plays the drums. We are having so much fun playing with them!

Here is Tonya teaching her sister Brooke the ropes

Here’s the whole crew: Rachel, Tonya, Brooke and Jen

We are almost done with our new album and cannot wait to release it! The CDs are being pr...

Halloween Freak Out!

Tonight XMELT, StumbleBum, ViQueen and Rad Max are playing at the Twilight Cafe and Bar!

1420 SE Powell Blvd. Doors open at 8 pm – $7 admission – 21+.

XMELT has been pulling out the stops for this show. We’ve painted a backdrop for the stage. We’ve made costumes. We’ll even give you a little sneak peak of the happenings.

Here’s a batwing, shoulder pads and part of a bustier in mid-production. Our entire band is dressing up like another band. Can you guess the band we’re dressing up like? We are even doing a cover by this band. Hint: it’s an all-male metal band that our all-female band is covering.  You know you wanna see this!

Come by tonight! The more the scarier!
