BIOGRAPHY

MELOVINE is an award winning modern rock band from Galveston, Texas.  Formed in 2004 by a bunch of high school kids, the band quickly set themselves apart from the other locals by performing dead on covers from bands like Tool and Deftones along with their own unique originals.  The band released 2 EP's in 2005 and 2007 and managed to get themselves out on the road touring the east coast twice.

The band suffered a major setback in 2008 when Hurricane Ike devastated the island and their homes. But the band proved unstoppable when their hit song "Lose The Smile" was chosen from over 6000 artists by Lionsgate Entertainment and Shaun Morgan of Seether as a top 12 finalist for the Punisher: War Zone Soundtrack just two months later! The Track surfaced in the #2 slot behind the winner on the "Judges Favorites CD" that was released alongside the DVD.

The band also took home the 2008 "Best In Houston" Texas Buzz Music Award from Houston's Clearchannel affiliate FM 94.5 and was nominated for several Houston Press Music Awards.

2009 was a time of rebuilding, refocusing and musical experimentation as the band began writing their debut album.  The album was delayed several times due to ongoing legal issues with ex-management. After finally settling in early 2010, the band headed to North Carolina to record "Blight" with Mitchell Marlow (Filter, Glassjaw, He Is Legend).

The album saw independent release on July 17, 2010 to a packed house at Scout Bar in Houston Texas.  The band will be hitting the road for a 30 date US tour with California rockers Park Lane throughout August.

Melovine has opened for many national acts including Chevelle, 10 Years, Sevendust, Saliva, Smile Empty Soul and many others.
