U-Melt is incredibly excited to announce the upcoming release of their second studio album entitled The I's Mind. Recorded and mixed at Mind Ignition Studios in Cincinnati, Ohio during the first half of 2006, The I's Mind was produced by U-Melt and their long time sound guru and engineer Josh Parrish. The I's Mind reunited the band with engineer Alex Lusht who co-produced U-Melt's first studio effort, and marks U-Melt's first chance to enter the studio with truly road tested songs.
With the release of The I's Mind, U-Melt continues its progression of becoming the band it wants to be: a band without boundaries. While creating a cohesive album which perfectly flows from one song to the next, The I's Mind showcases U-Melt's ability to distance themselves from traditional labels, revealing a unique sound by combining intense and captivating compositions while maintaining an infectious groove that will keep your feet moving and your mind floating.
The I's Mind will be officially released on September 30, 2006 at U-Melts CD Release Party at The Knitting Factory's Main Space in New York City. Pre-order for the album is now available through www.umelt.com.
