Yeah, we know it’s cold, but rock and roll is a harsh yet fulfilling mistress, so we’ll be playing this year’s Motown Winter Blast on Friday February 8th. Head on over to the Fathead Stage at 6 PM to see us debut a new song and a few of our favorite covers. It’s free and we’ll all huddle together for warmth.

Ol’ John Skelebones here, Boils and Ghouls! Taking a break from being resident Pumpkin Duke of MxM Manor to announce two new additions to "NIGHTMARE… at the Manor!" Ypsi-loopster ORPHANAGE and Queen of Noise WILLA RAE! This show is shaping up to be MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER!
You want deetz? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be there… or be SCARED!
If MxM ever gets famous, it’ll go down in wiki-history that Melissa briefly played drums in now-defunct Detroit all-girl rock band Smudge Candy. Well, it seems as if Halloween will be a bit of a Smudge Candy reunion with former frontbabe Willa Rae showing up at the Manor with her guitar to sing a few Smudge Candy favorites, new tunes, and covers! Will she be playing anything spooky? Will Melissa be coerced into harmonizing on “Julia”? Come to Match by Match Manor on Halloween for NIGHTMARE At The Manor and find out!
Prepping for the release of the first singles off Vivat Veritas, mixed and mastered by Justin Perkins of Mystery Room Recording. Doesn’t ring a bell? Maybe you’ve heard of THESE plucky CMJ darlings…
…. yeah. Awesome. Now, we’re not saying it’ll sound like that, but we’d be pretty pumped if it did.
All that and more is coming, including live videos, Halloween treats, a certain movie themed SING-ALONG SHOW that’s been YEARS in the making!
We deeply appreciate your unending support and patience, and we’re working really hard to deliver our absolute best. You deserve nothing less.
Love and Frosty Floats (with root beer, anything else is blasphemy),
Gray & Melissa
If you missed our Tuesday night show at the Pig this week with our super awesome Bay Area homies Ash Reiter, it isn’t too late! Join us at the Tap Room in Ypsilanti tonight for some sodas and sunny tunes. It was great getting to share the stage with another duo, especially one as tight as Ash.
Plus, they rock a sweet clear drum kit and a fine-as-hell green guitar. If you’re into that sort of thing.
Match by Match making an appearance on one of our favorite local radio programs, Tree Town Sounds, hosted by Matthew Altruda. MxM decided to have some fun and do what is called in the biz a “mash up” of our favorite Kanye track “Monster” with our song “Ambulance.” What’re we gonna do now? Whatever we wanna do, GOSH, it’s cool now.
