"MANIA!" drops worldwide on Pravda Records

Seasons Greetings to everyone.  We hope you all find time to enjoy the Holidays and get some well-deserved hibernation. 

We'll get you up to speed in the world of The Melismatics.  As you may know we recently signed to Pravda Records, and our new album "MANIA!" comes out January 10th (see huge text above).  We've just learned that "MANIA!" will be available for pre-order on Itunes one week before it's release AND for a limited time it will be sold for the low price of $7.99!  Purchase your copy (and gift many copies!) right away to take advantage of this limited, special price.  The Itunes version of "MANIA!" will include two bonus features-- the "Your Love Is A Poison" music video and the DRA Remix of the new track "Divided Devotions."   Remember, the best way to show your support for any band is to purchase their music.  In a world of file sharing and illegal downloads, it helps us continue to do what we do.  Your support is appreciated!

Kickstarter advance copies of "MANIA!" will go out the moment we receive them.  Again, thanks to all of you who contributed.  We couldn't have done this without you!
Jane By Design

In other news, "Digging Deep" will be featured in the upcoming ABC
Family show, Jane By Design which begins airing in 2012.  We'll keep you posted as to the exact date the episode airs. 

Pony Up!, after being introduced to the world on shows like "Gossip Girl," "Bad Girls Club," "Real World," and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" finally makes a live show debut New Years Eve at 400 Bar in Minneapolis, MN with Sick of Sarah.   There is a very high likelihood this show will sell out, so get your tickets now! 

Also on the horizon is the 10-year-anniversary-remastered-re-release (whew!) of "Postmodern Rock" with previously unreleased tracks and a re-imagined track order.  More details coming soon...

We've got lots of touring ahead of us, more music videos to shoot, new songs to record, and top-secret projects in the works.  To top it off, look for our revamped website coming soon.  We'll see you on the other side amigos!
