Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Mind Museum: We like to think our music is a bit different and has a unique sound that isn't really categorised under a set genre, something thats a bit different to other bands out there at the minute and we are about to release our first EP at the end of January 2011, which showcases the different influences and styles ranging from Punk, Metal, Rock and Pop. We really believe your readers will like what we are doing musically and we love to meet new people! We have been a band for just a short time but we have a lot of exciting things happening next year and we want people to know about them.

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
MM: Mind Museum formed in August 2010 in Bristol, UK from the ashes of other bands including I Am The Door, a Southwest based indie rock band who in the 3 years together gained air time on Radio 1 and had interest from many record companies. They completed a number of UK tours including supports for Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Enter Shikari, Minus The Bear. Also ex-Full Scream Ahead members, a Southwest-based rock band that played alongside bands such as, Attack Attack, Twin Atlantic, and Straight Lines. The band released an EP in 2009 titled ‘We Write Our Own Anthems’ and received considerable press including Kerrang, Rocksound and many web-zines.

The three of us have spent the last few months hidden away in a rehearsal room, hardening our sound and broadening our musical horizons with the intent to change the music in a positive way. We have created something brand new perfectly crafted, produced and polished without losing any heart, soul and rawness.

ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
MM: The first time we headed into the studio and recorded. It was really good to finally hear the songs that we had been working on for the last couple of months done in a studio, and we were all really proud and excited at how they turned out, and people seem to share the same views.

ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
MM: The main plan is to gig lots and try and get on some support/tour slots with other up and coming bands so we can let more people hear our music. We also plan to record our first video for our track ‘Rat Race’ and hoping this gets air play on TV along with a press campaign for our debut EP at the end of January. Other than that, we are already writing new material and will carry on doing so in the hope that we will have a full length release towards the back end of 2011.
