Having announced the release of their third studio album 100% YES, out on March 27, Melt Yourself Down are set to tour the UK throughout April and May 2020, including a show at Margate’s Elsewhere on April 24.
The six-piece London based jazz band, signed to Decca Records, tackle an array of difficult political and historical topics that bleed into the realities of modern life in Britain, with songs ‘Boot and Spleen’ exploring the sombre history of British colonialism, ‘Every Single Day’ delving into the drawbacks of social media and ‘Born in the Manor’ indicting those in power for the negligence that allowed the Grenfell tragedy to happen.
The band was founded by saxophonist Pete Wareham and fronted by vocalist Kush Gaya.
Wareham said: “So much has changed in the world since we started writing in 2016. We couldn’t ignore any of it and this new music is borne from our feelings of cultural restlessness in this constantly shifting global climate”.
Advance tickets for the show starting at 7pm at Elsewhere in The Centre are £12 (+ booking fee) and can be bought via the See Tickets at http://bit.ly/MYDmargate
