U-Melt is calling it quits. The electro prog jammers have been around for seven years, released three albums and kept a hectic tour schedule. Their last show is in New York on November 26 at the Highline Ballroom.

Over the last seven years U-Melt has enjoyed all the unique experiences of being a touring rock band. We have criss-crossed the country, released three albums, and built a family of amazing friends and fans throughout the US. Recently we have found ourselves struggling through the economic downturn along with the rest of the country. After much discussion we have decided that it is time to close this chapter of U-Melt. Without naming everyone, we want to thank the numerous agents, promoters, managers, artists, friends, and family that made this trip possible.

In addition to our currently announced dates, we have added two more U-Melt shows which will be our final festival appearance and final show. On Friday November 26th, U-Melt will return to New York City for our farewell show at the amazing Highline Ballroom. Details of the event and pre-sale info will be announced soon. This will be a memorable evening in our hometown of NYC and we hope to see everyone together one more time. Before that, on September 19th, U-Melt will perform at our last Wormtown festival -- tickets can be purchased at No U-Melt dates will be added between the Wormtown Music Festival and the Highline show in November.

As for the future, we will all be spending time exploring new sonic spaces, seeking out fresh musical territory, pushing ourselves into new directions, and as always, striving to make the best music we can possibly make. In the upcoming weeks, we will be announcing some new projects and collaborations which we are all very excited about, so please stay tuned... this journey is far from over. Thanks again to all of the fans who joined us for this incredible adventure, we love you all.
