Tera Melos



Tera Melos share the video for the title track to their forthcoming third album Trash Generator today. Watch and share “Trash Generator” — directed by Behn Fannin, of “Bitchy Resting Face” viral video fame — below or via YouTube.

Tera Melos launch an extensive North American headlining tour with Speedy Ortiz supporting this Fall. Please see current dates below.

Trash Generator, the trio’s third full length, is an astonishing blast of confidence and rejuvenation. It sounds as if the 4-year downtime since their last album has recharged the band with an entirely new sense of purpose. The performances are brilliant and sharp, the songs concise yet intricately detailed, and the album production deftly captures the band’s strength as a live unit. Their dalliances with mellower psychedelic phrases on their previous two albums, X’ed Out (2013) and Patagonian Rats (2010) are significantly trimmed and instead utilized as colorations within a swirling maelstrom of righteous aggro punk-jazz abandon. As such, it sounds like Tera Melos has fully metabolized their pop tendencies and found a way they can coexist with the band’s iconoclast origins. Tera Melos — guitarist/vocalist Nick Reinhart, bassist Nathan Latona and drummer John Clardy — have learned to stop worrying and just be Tera Melos.

Artist Quote

“Wth this record it was 100% let’s not concern ourselves with what we should be doing at this point in the band’s lifespan, and just fully focus on what makes us happy,” vocalist/guitarist Nick Reinhart says.

“Making a new record seemed like a fun act of defiance,” adds bassist Nathan Latona. “The odds are against bands like us, but despite all the negativity involved in trying to struggle and survive as an artist, we made Trash Generator because we just wanted to get together, have some fun, and make something that we think is cool.”
