State Of Mind


Biography

The beginning of 2005 marks the beginning of State of Mind, when singer Emile joins the band to complete the line up. The groovy NY styled hardcore these guys were working on appealed to Emile, and quickly he came up with some lyrics that fitted the songs well. A glance at a film poster gave them a name, a 4-track in a rehearsal space gave them a demo, a friend gave them a show and the ball started rolling.

The beginning of 2005 marks the beginning of State of Mind, when singer Emile joins the band to complete the line up. The groovy NY styled hardcore these guys were working on appealed to Emile, and quickly he came up with some lyrics that fitted the songs well. A glance at a film poster gave them a name, a 4-track in a rehearsal space gave them a demo, a friend gave them a show and the ball started rolling. Their demo consisted of 4 songs inspired by the likes of Burn, Breakdown, Maximum Penalty and Leeway. Since then a lot of gigs followed, including weekend trips and small tours with their friends in A Step Apart, No Turning Back, Solid Ground, For the Glory and True Colors. One of the demo songs was re-recorded and appeared on the Light the Fuse compilation EP; other bands are Justice, A Step Apart, Nothing Done and Icepick. New songs were created and recorded in late June 2005. The EP on Bust! Records contains 4 of those songs, the cd version all 6 of them. With the distribution being handled by Crucial Attack, first reactions were really good. The songs on these recordings had a faster touch, but without losing the groove of the demo.

In March 2006 the band hit the studio again and recorded new songs that are featured on the 'Bitter Times, Better Times' EP. This one came out on the label of their good friends at Light the Fuse records.

Now, over a year later and after a period of silence, in September 2007 their full length 'Music for the Statefully insane' has been released! And again, people seem to like it!

Early 2008 the vinyl version of 'Music for the Statefully insane' has seen its daylight. Conformity Records took care of the job. 2007 turned out to be a good year, let's make 2008 even better! Until then, come check 'em out and in the meantime, stay sane!

State Of Mind
Mental Gold CD
Crucial Attack Records

Originally inspired by bands like Maximum Penalty, Breakdown, Fahrenheit 451 and Leeway, State of Mind have been playing groovy NY styled hardcore since 2005. Now, four years later, the band present their second full length album entitled MENTAL GOLD, to be released by Crucial Attack Records. It's a new chapter in the history of a band that has previously released a demo, two 7 inches and a full length. The release marks expansion, musically as well as lyrically. Influences ranging from hip hop to classic rock can be found, while on the lyrical side they take a critical stance towards passiveness and lack of awareness in today's society. Not very surprising for a hardcore band, you might think, but it's turning into a rare feature these days. MENTAL GOLD was recorded with the help of Dirk Miers at De Studio and Nico van Montfort to make it sound the best they could. After releasing the album on May 16th the band will immediately hit the streets for another tour around Europe. Another highlight this year has been the release of their first video for the song One Lie To Live. Turning five hours of film into a video of 2:30 minutes it shows the energy and power the band gives to and gets from the audience. Visit their MySpace or Vimeo.com to check it out. Without a doubt 2009 will be the best year for STATE OF MIND so far!
