Beneath Augusta Release Debut Album

Published: 2004-10-06
From the ashes of Toronto band Mellonova has risen a new indie band to take over its place. Beneath Augusta, comprised of two former Mellonova members, is that band, and they're ready to unveil themselves to their hometown crowd. To celebrate the release of their debut album 'You Gotta Come Down Sometime', Beneath Augusta is throwing a CD release show at Toronto's Rivoli on October 20th.

Taking a conscious step away from the space rock of Mellonova, the members of Beneath Augusta have cultivated their own unique sound. The album that the band is presenting to Toronto's music fans in two weeks time houses 10 tracks that have had the band compared to the likes of Interpol.

Although Matthew Cromarty and Michael Brennan have left their Mellonova past behind, they have by no means forgotten it. The way they came upon their new band's name was by scanning the track-list of one of their former band's records. The song 'Beneath Augusta' can be found on Mellonova's self-titled 2000 EP.
