We are witnessing a global revolution. A movement of movements. From the Arab Spring, to the Occupy protests, to the world-wide push for climate protection, we are part of a major shift in human society. The more Melodeego gets involved in this movement, the more the band’s music is inspired by the people involved. “Fear Them Not” is Melodeego’s newest record, and is dedicated to every person who is standing up in the face of fear in order to change the world.
