The New York City based progressive groove machine known as U-Melt has announced their twelve state fall 2008 tour that will take them from the east coast, to the Rocky Mountains and back again – all before Thanksgiving. The nineteen-show trek, kicking off October 3rd at the Highline Ballroom in New York City, will feature familiar stops in familiar cities, as the dynamic quartet closes out the year. And of course, what U-Melt fall tour would be complete without one of their legendary Halloween performances?
Boasting a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the business, U-Melt showcases their diligent work ethic through their musical chops. Blazing guitar runs, precise rhythms, punchy bass lines and mind-bending keys comprise the trademark U-Melt sound, as the band manages to raise the bar night in and night out. With a penchant for taking listeners on a musical journey through time and space, the four piece provides an aural experience unlike any other. U-Melt blends elements of rock, jazz, trance and funk and fuses them into a musical state of mind.
After the tour kickoff show, U-Melt will return to Castaways for a Saturday night party in Ithaca, NY. Following stops in Ohio and Kansas, the group will make their long awaited return to Colorado with shows at the Fox Theater in Boulder and Dulcinea's and Owsley's in Denver October 9th through the 11th. The three night stand will mark the first time the band has played in Colorado since early 2008, when the band played seven shows in seven nights at a mile high. U-Melt will then return back east, rocking Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York, before capping the tour off at The North Star in Philadelphia on November 15th. Included in the mix will be U-Melts Halloween spectacular, which will be held this year at the brand new Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY.
Continuing on a path of evolution, U-Melt marches on like a well-oiled machine. Their dedication to the music shines in every performance. Don't miss U-Melt on tour this fall!
