New Band of the Day #110: Tired Minds

Tired Minds

Debut LP LOOM out now.

Who: Ben – Vocals, Liam – Guitar, Paul – Guitar, Ollie – Bass, and Isaac – Drums.

What: Post hardcore (FFO: The Dillinger Escape Plan, At The Drive-In, Converge)

Where: Newcastle, Australia.

Why: Australian post hardcore quintet Tired Minds are an amalgamation. Basically, they’ve had a look and a listen to all the best bits from the very best post hardcore bands over the years, thrown it all into a bit pot, and created some kind of Frankenstein monster of a post hardcore beast.

Mining the violence and aggression of The Dillinger Escape Plan, the melodic sense of At The Drive-In, the emotional intensity of La Dispute, and the organic sound of Converge, they’ve crafted an album that is fiery, vulnerable, and adventurous.
