Well, guys, we can’t give you new music yet but we can repackage the only two songs that we still play off American Crowbar, even though they don’t sound like this anymore!

New sounds coming soon! We mean it this time.

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 mxmmanor@gmail.com. Be there… or be SCARED!

6 Days Until… NIGHTMARE At The Manor.

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!

Can’t make it on Wednesday? Well, never fear - Match by Match will be packing up their keykits and gortars and leaving the hours to head ‘round the corner to Ypsilanti’s Depot Town on Saturday Night to play Joan and Michael Newbury’s Halloween Benefit for the Hope Center!

As it is at a residence, please e-mail mxmmanor(at)gmail(dot)com for the address if you can’t access the facebook invite. Or just wander around Depot Town until you see the pretty garage door!

Who said Rocktober was dead?

Stay creepy, kids.

Yeah, it’s been a bit.  A lot can happen in 5 months.Unfortunately, we’ve had to delay our timeline a bit.  We were so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support that our Indiegogo project received, that our plans got a little ahead of us.  Our bad.But the MxM crew’s been EXTRA hard at work prepping for the release of Vivat Veritas!Since the rise of Match by Match Manor (aka the house we call our castle in Ypsilanti), we’ve been:
Finishing the album artwork! 
Expanding the key kit!  (And decorating it…)
Adding ALL NEW original songs to our live set!
Covering THIS. (Stepdad, you guys are our heroes.)
Revamping our internets! Check out www.matchbymatch.com, our facebook page, and twitter feed!
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.
Stay tuned!  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.
