Biography

Bleak Track was a female-fronted 3 piece from East Bay San Francisco that offered up a gloomy marriage of melodic deathpunk & noisewave, punctuated by heavy bass. Melody Bleak’s suicide-note lyrics & machine-gun guitar antics echo over eerie layers of bass, keyboards & live percussion. Bassist Dave Ed (of Neurosis) lent his notorious destruction-of- sound to the record, while Jason Nipple (of the UK Subs) brought things full circle with hard-hitting punk rock drums. Bleak Track is “early Siouxsie meets Sonic Youth,” with perhaps a dash of X-mal Deutschland.

Bleak Track has parted ways but Melody Bleak can still be heard singing for the New York City band, Blackpool, and she appears as guest vocalist on the track Betrayal by Seattle’s Anguisette.

Bleak Track’s self-released 2003 EP, Starting to Dream is marketed and distributed by Seattle indie label SINister Records. A virtual collage of musical genres, “Starting to Dream” effectively blurred the boundaries of Deathrock and Punk with its own unique sound.
