Bio

M.T.L. IS MUCH LIKE OUR NAMESAKE CITY: BILINGUAL, INTOXICATING, INFECTIOUS, BRASH, POLITICAL AND ALWAYS UP FOR A PARTY.

ALTHOUGH THE NUCLEUS OF THE BAND CAME TOGETHER ALMOST 10 YEARS AGO, IT IS ONLY IN THE LAST YEAR THAT WE HAVE SOLIDIFIED OUR CURRENT LINE UP. AT THE CENTRE IS LEAD SINGER SONGWRITER MIKE VALLETTA, THE ONE CONSTANT IN THE EVER CHANGING BAND THAT IS M.T.L., ALONG WITH JEFF COHEN AND MATT GILLIS ON GUITARS, BASSIT JONO THORPE AND DRUMMER STUART ASPREY, THIS IS THE STRONGEST AND MOST COHESIVE AND CREATIVE LINE UP OF THE BAND.

IN FACT, WHERE MANY AND MOST BANDS WOULD BE CRUSHED INTO THE ANNALS OF OBSCURITY BY TRIBULATION SUCH AS LINE UP CHANGES, DISAGREEMENTS AND EVEN LAWSUITS FROM EX MEMBERS, THESE MEN FACED THEIR HURDLES HEAD ON, EMBRACED THE EXPERIENCES AND PREVAILED, HENCE ASSERTION THAT THESE PAST TWO YEARS ARE THE TRUE INAUGURATION OF M.T.L.

AFTER GOING THROUGH SO MUCH, HAVING THAT MOMENT WHERE OUR ONLY TASK WAS TO WRITE, RECORD AND EXPRESS OURSELVES ARTISTICALLY, IT WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS DAY FOR A KID, I THINK THAT ENTHUSIASM IS TANGIBLE ON THE RECORDING, "VALLETTA NOTES, ADDING THAT MTL'S PAST EXPERIENCES WERE CRUCIAL IN ENSURING THREE ESSENTIAL ASPECTS OF OUR MODUS: NEVER GIVE UP, RECOGNIZE GOOD FORTUNE AND APPRECIATE AND ENJOY THE MOMENT.

OUR LIVE SHOWS ARE REVERED FOR BEING PRETTY EXPLOSIVE AND CHAOTIC. WE REALLY CUT LOOSE WHEN WE HIT THE STAGE BECAUSE A SHOW IS ABOUT THAT ENERGY AND EXCITEMENT. PEOPLE ENJOY THEMSELVES AT OUT GIGS AND IT INSPIRES THEM TO CHECK OUT OUR RECORD. THATS WHERE THEY CAN GET INTO WHAT'S INSPIRING US PERSONALLY OR POLITICALLY AND HOPEFULLY FEEL MOTIVATED BY IT.

OUR FIRST ALBUM "RAISE A FINGER" WILL BE AVAILABLE IN TWO VERSIONS: ENGLISH AND FRENCH, WHICH WE WILL BRING ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS EARLY AS THIS SPRING.
