Tera Melos Tour, Vinyl and Drugs

"Tera Melos is a fucking musical hand grenade"

Tera Melos will be on tour all of March, including two shows down at SXSW. In February the band released a new covers EP entitled Idioms Vol I that is available for free download in WAV or MP3!. Featuring 5 great tracks from The Pixies, The Beach Boys, The Clash, Rivers Cuomo and Polaris – yes they covered Hey Sandy – all in under 8 minutes in a style only Tera Melos could do with such panache.

The band has spent all of February at our house in Los Angeles writing their next full length album, slated for release through Sargent House sometime toward the end of 2009. In addition, Tera Melos has remixed and re-mastered their album Drugs to the Dear Youth and Sargent House will be putting it out on vinyl in time for their April Tour. Pre-sale for this and the Idioms Vol I 7”inch will be going on sale the week of March 23rd.

On another side note, and an episode of six degrees of separation, Nick Reinhart (guitar/vocals in Tera Melos) has teamed up with drummer Zach Hill to form a new band called bygones, whose debut album, entitled by-, will see its release on Sargent House in June 2009. Zach Hill also appears on the upcoming release of El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez called Cryptomnesia, being put out by Rodriguez Lopez Productions with some help from the old Sargent House. How's that for togetherness?
