“Skate Punk is time resistant, powerful and straight to the point in the modern scene and it is bands such as Melonball that toast a rich legacy as they hurtle forth into the future.” – Ear Nutrition
“Melodic and angsty throughout…I was surprised at how this song stuck with me for a while after listening. Fans of never-let-up melodic punk rock will likely find something to like here.”- That’s Good Enough For Me

Nuremberg Germany’s Melonball have dropped a new video for the song “Move Your Mind” off their recent debut album BREATHE out now via Thousand Islands Records/Lockjaw Records.
The video was produced by students from the University of Ansbach as part of a school project.
Breathing is everything – life, the essence of existence and the focus on the existential. With their debut album BREATHE, Melonball hit pretty deep. Ten songs full of punch, anger, criticism, and emotion
are released by the skate punk band from Nuremberg on two labels, Thousand Islands Records and Lockjaw Records, that are well known for their good sense when it comes to the punk radar.
According to singer Oli, BREATHE collects social and system-critical topics, channels and breaks them down to the human feelings that are left at the end and can make you despair sometimes: “It’s at least comforting and often even life-saving to know that you’re not alone, that you’re not the only person feeling overwhelmed by injustice, abuse of power and all the shit that happens everywhere, but that you’re among like-minded people who share the same attitude and morals.”
Since their formation in 2019, Melonball have been traveling quite a bit, (except during the pandemic) and have been able to establish a name for themselves in the scene. Whether at Punk Rock Camp, Punk Rock Holiday, KNRD Fest or in front of audiences at shows with A Wilhelm Scream, Punk Rock Factory or Belvedere.
