Melody’s Echo Chamber returns after suffering brain aneurysm and broken vertebrae

Melody’s Echo Chamber has returned to music after suffering a serious injury by announcing a release of second album Bon Voyage. 

In June earlier this year, Far Out Magazine reported the news that Melody Prochet had been forced to cancel her show due to suffering a ‘serious injury’, that injury turned out to be potentially life threatening.

“Dearest Friends,” the statement read from her family. “Melody suffered a serious accident earlier this month. We are optimistic, but she needs to be in the hospital for a few more months. Due to these circumstances, Melody’s upcoming tour 
has been canceled. But she is hopeful to be able to play shows again soon.

“Thank you for your support

“- Melody’s Family -“

Now, in wonderfully positive news, Melody Prochet has confirmed her second album Bon Voyage will be released on June 15th. Made up of seven expansive tracks, Bon Voyage marries Melody’s breathless soprano to the wildest sonic excursions, always pinned to an emphatic, clattering groove as she delivers her fables of spiritual search and emotional healing in multiple tongues (French, English and Swedish).

Bon Voyage is a collaborative record between Prochet and Dungen’s Reine Fiske and The Amazing’s Fredrik Swahn with Melody sculpting and producing the sessions as well as encouraging the players around her to experiment, often with instruments that might be less familiar to them. It also features special guests Gustav Esjtes and Johan Holmegaard (both from Dungen) and Nicholas Allbrook (Pond).

Today Prochet shares ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’ from the forthcoming album.  Having gone back to her childhood music conservatory to learn drums aged 30, ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’ is the first song Melody played drums on. Prochet adds about the track: “It’s a special one. I’m used to recording with masters of drums and accepting my drum playing as not perfect but with the right intention was a big deal to me”.
