The melon guys are in Los Angeles until Sunday recording new songs at Chris Thorn and Brad Smith’s studio. There is a cool article on billboard.com written by Greg Prato with Rogers Stevens talking about how the band got back together, about their new singer Travis Warren and revealing they have already 3 new songs (Make A Difference, For My Friends and Harmful Belly) Read the whole article here.
Thanks to Greg Prato

The new release of The Live At The Palace is in stores now featuring a brand new packaging, never seen pictures by Danny Clinch and intimate notes by Rogers Stevens. It was recorded on October 11, 1995 at The Palace Theater in Hollywood when the band was touring for the second and sadly, last album with Shannon Hoon.
