Hello there, and welcome to the latest edition of The Melismatics Official Newsletter!  We’ve been busy, so let’s dig in…

First off, Ryan and Pony of The Melismatics have just released their debut single as a duo, “Low.”  It’s available on most digital music stores, and a music video is currently in the works.  A full-length album is also on the way that will feature guest appearances from musician friends we’ve made over the last 2 decades of touring.

In other news, Mark and Ryan just returned from their tour to Japan and Epcot Center playing in Soul Asylum.  We’ve got pictures below and a link to a short video of our experiences.  We hope you enjoy them!

We’ve also got some exciting shows coming up in the Twin Cities, including the annual Replacements Tribute at The Turf Club Black Friday, November 25th (that’s TONIGHT if you are reading this in “real time”).  We’ll be playing the top 15 Mats’ songs as picked by fans in a vote.  Check out our other shows below!
