Tera Melos premiere another song from forthcoming album, North American tour dates with TTNG starting in April

Sacramento's genre-benders Tera Melos premiere another new song from their forthcoming new album, X'ed Out today via Vice's The track, "Sunburn" is available to stream/share HERE.

Tera Melos also launch extensive North American tour dates with Sargent House label mates, Britain's This Town Needs Guns (now simply called TTNG) beginning in April. Tera Melos will be supporting X'ed Out, as will TTNG promote their new full length Please see complete dates below and specific details (tickets, times, etc) for the shows for Tera Melos HERE and TTNG HERE.

Tera Melos also recently premiered the first song from X'ed Out via Rolling Stone. The track, "Tropic Lame" is also available for streaming/sharing HERE. Cover art and full track listing below.

Truly great art is that which can't be easily understood and dissected, but immediately resonates nonetheless. Tera Melos' new full length, X'ed Out is just that kind of adventure. The songs transcend in a way that makes you want to sit friends down to hear it, not only to share the experience, but perhaps in hopes that together you can create the world in which songs like this can be defined. It hits mental buttons and flicks internal switches that you never knew existed, while cleverly obscuring the technical precision for which the band has been known. It's remarkably multifaceted, incredibly catchy and perplexing to unravel exactly how it all works. 

"It's like visiting a friend who lives on the 14th floor of a building with no elevator, yet he has a grand piano in his apartment," explains bassist Nathan Latona. "How did he get it there? Was it carried up 14 flights of stairs, assembled on site or what? This record is the piano in the apartment with no elevator. We wanted to do all of the tricky stuff in a way that doesn't seem noticeable." 

X'ed Out is the culmination of an arc begun on Tera Melos' first proper full-length, Patagonian Rats (Sargent House, 2010) -- a supercollider of 60s pop hooks, Minutemen garage-prog, post-punk evisceration, wiry psychedelia and nearly everything else in-between. Here, the Sacramento based trio burns and simmers simultaneously while situated somewhere without benefit of location services. It's a nowhere land, X'ed Out of the grid, both inviting and daring. Join us. 

X'ed Out will be available everywhere April 16th, 2013 on LP, CD and download via Sargent House.
