Modern English will perform at The Ludlow Garage on Friday, September 1st. Simply put, the single “I Melt With You” by this legendary British rock band is one of the most iconic songs of the New Wave era. It garnered heavy rotation on the then-thriving Modern Rock radio format, MTV and dance clubs across the globe, and was prominently featured in the classic 1983 film Valley Girl, starring a young Nicolas Cage. Since then Modern English has releases a steady stream of studio albums and live records and toured the world. In 2023 Modern English remains as active as ever, with a U.S. headline tour that come on the heels of the band’s widely talked about performance at Cruel World Festival in Los Angeles, CA in May and the recently completed recording of its forthcoming album produced by Mario J. McNulty (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails). Support on select dates for the upcoming tour, INCLUDING THE LUDLOW GARAGE SHOW, will be provided by Korine, a young electronic pop duo that blends New Wave nostalgia with modern pop sensibilities, contrasting upbeat rhythms against sullen, emotionally evocative lyrics. This will be a very special evening pairing two bands that share certain musical sensibilities. If you’re drawn to music that’s dark and austere yet melodic and passionate, with layered keyboards, catchy drum beats, and elements of goth and industrial music, this will be a concert to savor.
