Mr. Mellman is now in The Julie Ruin, the new band fronted by Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill. They have released their critically acclaimed debut album Run Fast and are touring the country
I have been working so hard with my band these last few weeks on getting all our songs ready for a final mix. I just thought in my mind right now how fucking blessed i am to be able to sit in a room with Kathleen Hanna, Kathi Wilcox, Carmine Covelli and Sara Landau and make this music. And at some point soon, you all will be able to hear it. I feel like for years I was a live artist; performing almost nightly and the little recorded output that is out there of those years is such a small part of what I cherished about that time. Listening to the mixes of the songs for The Julie Ruin’s upcoming album makes me proud and stuff! leaving a legacy.
