Label: Enjoy the Ride Records

This is a pretty wild little release here!

Back in the early aughts in the days of indie rock emo and drive thru records there were some songs released from Dave Melillo. The album never came, but it’s finally here.

I find the center labels to be super clever on these.

If you are interested in this then act fast as ETR is currently having a bit of a sale!

There are currently a few different variants available:
-Clear (100 copies),
-Black (200 copies)
-Silver inside Clear with Black Splatter (200 copies)

The Details

Enjoy The Ride Records is proud to announce the release of Dave Melillo's "You've Got Potential" The Unreleased EP Sessions. This is the first time these recordings have been released on any format.
Dave Melillo hit the scene in the early 2000's and was signed to Drive-Thru Records and released his debut EP, Talk Is Cheap. At the time, it looked like Melillo was poised for success like many DTR artists before him. Something strange happened - an album never surfaced.

That is until now.

"I’ve been lucky enough to get another shot at telling my story to the world. Dusting off old memories and framing them in a light. Maybe it will be translated as a cautionary tale. Maybe my story will be told as one of hubris that lead to an ultimate demise. Either way, upon listening to these songs, even now, almost 15 years later, I can’t deny that the potential seemed unlimited."
- Dave Melillo

"You've Got Potential" The Unreleased EP Sessions were recorded in 2005. Melillo worked with some heavy hitters in the pop punk world, most notably John Feldmann (Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco, Goldfinger). Thirteen years later, the tapes had been pulled from the shelves to begin working on the creation of the album that should have been released. The ETR Team had a blast helping Dave create the perfect playlist for this special release.
"You've Got Potential" The Unreleased EP Sessions features original artwork and is limited to 500 copies, split across three variants. Enjoy The Ride Records variants are Clear (100 copies), Black (200 copies) and Silver inside Clear with Black Splatter (200 copies). Each album comes with a digital download card.
