Speaking on the news of his debut album and the release of “Regaining Unconsciousness“, Eric Melvin shares
“I am so thankful for the love and support for the first ever Melvinator single, ‘American Errorist’ from last year. This exciting journey continues with this next release, ‘Regaining Unconsciousness’, one of my favorite NOFX tracks. The lyrics are as relevant today as ever, and the Melvinator version was such a blast to create. I can’t wait to share it!
I am grateful for the space to explore my passions for Punk Rock & EDM and celebrate songs that NOFX fans know and love as much as I do.
Along with American Errorist, Regaining Unconsciousness will be on my debut album, ‘The Rise of the Melvinator’ which will be dropping soon. I’m stoked!”
With a packed schedule for 2023, Melvinator has teamed up with long-time friend, bandmate, and label boss Fat Mike as one of the first signings to his new label Bottles To The Ground. With the announcement of “Rise Of The Melvinator“, he will offer fans brand new versions of NOFX staples. Produced by Fat Mike and recorded over the course of two years alongside producer Baz The Frenchman (NOFX – The Decline at Red Rocks) and Danny Lohner of Nine Inch Nails, the project continues Eric Melvin’s exploration of the do-it-yourself links between punk rock & EDM.
