Minot have announced that they’ll release their debut EP on November 27 via The Mylene Sheath. Their style has been shaped by experimental bands on the fringe of rock music like Turing Machine, Laddio Bolocko, Young Widows, and Future Of The Left. These influences brought the three members to an interesting musical intersection. Minot puts experimentalism and fury back into post-rock; the expansive, but increasingly predictable genre. The band features guitarist Matthew Solberg, formerly of From Monument To Masses (Dim Mak Records). began writing the music that would become MINOT shortly before FMTM broke up in 2010.
Minot will be on the road as much as possible the remainder of 2012, as well as writing a follow-up full-length for 2013. Here are a couple of dates they have on the books:
09/28/12 at Art Beat Foundation / The 25th Street Collective *
11/17/12 at Hemlock Tavern ^
