Melotia is an LA based hard rock band that formed in August 2004 when singer/guitarist Ryan David parted company with his Australian group. Having arrived on US shores from Sydney Australia just 9 months earlier, RD suddenly found himself homeless with no band, no money, no job and few friends. "I had a bag of tattered clothes, 2 guitars and an amplifer all packed into a rapidly deteriorating 1982 Dodge Van that I was basically living in at the time." RD immediately set about putting together a new band.
Through a process of trial and error, along with a few line up changes Melotia settled as a three piece with John Maryanski on bass and Clark Skelton on drums. Melotia released their self-produced debut album "Every Waking Moment" on the 15th of June, 2007. The band proceeded to tour extensively
through 2007 and 2008, hitting hundreds of cities in over 14 states. After completing their Summer Kamikaze Tour in June/July 2008 Melotia wrapped up 15 months of intense touring and took a much needed break from the road. Regrouping in August 2008 the boys grinded away in the studio for two months, the outcome of which is their new EP entitled "Saving August Divine". The new material marks a mature progression for the group.
Melotia pride themselves on the raw energy of their live show. "We write music and lyrics based on honesty and truth. There are no gimmicks.", says frontman RD. "We''ve all been through a lot and it shows in our live show...". What you see is what you get and what you get is honest, in-your-face hard rock music.
