Dance to the Raw Noise Industrial Rock of [MELTER] “blacklist”

As Shot

Music is definitely my healthiest escape from the daily grind of adulthood, and going to shows is something I’ll never give up in the name of growing up. The louder, the more intense, the better. Like [melter]’s new single “blacklist,” it’s raw noise meets darkwave and industrial to make a swirling gothic sound brew that will have you thrashing one second and dancing another. Today we’re stoked to be sharing their video for the new song, directed by MoK Films and [melter]. They’ve got two tours coming up in the summer and fall (check the dates below) and are kicking off July at Purgatory: Chapter III at Reggie’s in Chicago.

“blacklist” started off as a looped workout song that I would vocalize over, and with the lyrics, it became an anthem for myself. It was kind of my way of saying to myself, and all of us, really, that You have so much fucking potential: don’t you realize how powerful you really are?  When did you give up and decide it was okay to settle and sell out to the man, playing the game they set up, dying slow deaths?
