We Were What We Ate
Based in Philadelphia, Melquiades is comprised of guitarist/vocalist Sam Stansbery, bassist/vocalist Julie Coy, and drummer Chris Fry. Formed in 2005, the band issued their first EP, We Were What We Ate, in the spring of 2007 on Inchworm Records. The members of Melquiades played in several musical endeavors in the 1990's, including Policy of 3, Spirit Assembly, Fields Lay Fallow, among others. Although expressing musical influences is always tricky, elements of sounds popular in scenes along the East Coast from the past and present percolate under the surface of Melquiades' music.
