Malakye Grind is a four piece rock band from Australia and California. Formed in 1992 the band released its newest full length 11 track LP titled "Music for Midnight People" mixed by Australian heavyweight engineer Forrester Savell midway through 2021. The album charted in Australia debuting at #47 on the Australian iTunes Charts and the album's first single ‘Watch Them Burn’ has received airplay in the US, Canada, Europe, Brazil and Australia. The band signed to the UK based Extreme Label late 2021 and is available now on all major streaming platforms.
One year on from the release of 'Music for Midnight People' with the help of the bands record label 'Extreme Music' the Marvel Franchise selected MG's 'Wanna Party' for use on the "Special Features" cuts of Thor: Love and Thunder. The songs rocking riffage plays as the background for edits of Chris Hemsworth and the Thor crew cutting loose and was released globally for the films digital and blue ray versions in September 2022.
In 2022 "Wanna Party" was also used by Rugby Nation for television broadcast across Europe.
Malakye Grind is currently writing and recording the bands next album due for release late 2023!!
Malakye Grind received its first major radio airplay with the single "Mind Buzz" as a band of 18 yr old grunge rockers back in the early 90's.
The band played a small but significant role in the Australian music scene with headline and support tours with major festivals and Australian touring bands of the day - in a short period of time MG played 100's of shows in Australia gathering a following of committed fans that revelled on their energetic shows and grungy sound. Music and lifestyles changed seeing the members disband and move onto different scenes of the Australian and USA music industries. Some 15 years later the band reformed for a series of live shows and subsequent new demo recordings in preparation for the bands full album release of new songs (and a few reworked favourites). The album was released globally Friday 27th August.

Malakye Grind's second release and first full length album "Music for Midnight People" reveals a band of life long friends making rock music at full throttle. The bands 11 track LP sends grunge, punk and old school funk groove into the midnight hours with Smith’s potent lyrics and the bands raw sound exploring the raucous and the reverie of the good times thread between dusk and dawn. With “Music for Midnight People” Malakye Grind revisits the classic long play archetype paying homage to the great days of rock album releases. Written and recorded over 12 months in Australia and the U.S and mixed by heavy weight engineer Forrester Savell (Birds of Tokyo and Karnivool) the bands new music delivers. MG has never sounded better and has never been so ready to enter the main stage.
