A couple of months after the release of their debut full length “Portraits” via OverDrive Rec, Vicenza, Basick Records, Goodfellas Records, Unquiet Records, Trvs Records, and Towner Records, Italian progressive post hardcore band FALL OF MINERVA continue to play shows and spread the word about this fantastic record. We caught up with them to learn more about the band, their creative process, approach to touring and plans for the future. Watch below and be sure to check out “Portraits”, a record that confounds most of the stereotypes about the genre being unimaginative and almost impossible to expand.
Catch them live with French emo math rockers from SPORT, Brasil’s BETTER LEAVE TOWN and Venezia based NOEL this Saturday, August 13th at Spazio Aereo in Porto Marghera, Veneto, Italy. Go here to RSVP.
