Southwest Alt-rock merchants ‘Mind Museum’ unveil their hotly anticipated
debut record ‘Rat Race’ on 23rd May and prepare to hit the road……
Bristol new guns, Mind Museum are set to make their own mark on the currently buoyant Brit-rock scene with their uniquely alluring sound that merges earnest alternative rock, underpinned by probing guitar rhythms and engaging emotive vocals, with potent post-punk DIY ethics. Pulling from an eclectic array of influences from the likes of Biffy Clyro and Story of the Year, through to the likes of The Cure, The Police and Rush, the band have created an engrossing sound that genuinely commands your attention.
Comprised of Justin E Percival (vocals/bass), Will Slater (guitar) and beatmaster Chas Bacon (drums), Mind Museum, although only formed in August 2010, were actually born from the ashes of ‘I Am The Door’ and ‘Full Scream Ahead’. Both IATD and FSA had good underground successes, notching up national radio airplay on BBC Radio 1, critical acclaim from the likes of Rocksound & Kerrang! and also extensively toured the UK, chalking up slots with the likes of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Enter Shikari, Minus the Bear, Attack Attack, and Straight Lines, to name a few.
Mind Museum now stride forward in their own right and are geared to step up to the plate; the dynamic trio are already picking up national exposure for their debut video ‘Rat Race’, which is presently gracing screens via Lava TV, and the band are also racking up great radio airplay on BBC Introducing. The Bristol tunesmiths are now set to officially serve up their debut EP ‘Rat Race’ for national release this May. The record is jam-packed with sturdy riffs and hooky cuts, layered with classy anthemic melodies and thoughtful up-tempo arrangements. The alt-rockers wield a sharp knack for killer melody and have unveiled a powerhouse debut offering that is sure to propel the band to giddy heights for the remainder of 2011 and beyond!
