1 min read

The time has come. Maryland’s MINDSET have announced the details about their final release and plans to call it a day in 2016. Entitled “Nothing Less,” the EP features three songs that serve as a perfect final chapter in an already impressive catalog of poignant and powerful hardcore anthems. REACT! Records will unleash “Nothing Less” digitally on January 15th, 2016, with the 7″ vinyl version following on March 11th, 2016.

To coincide with this final EP, Mindset will perform a run of shows through the end of 2015 and into 2016, including plans to share the stage with legendary band Burn in NYC and venture internationally to Germany, UK, and Canada. The band will also trek throughout the U.S. alongside many of their closest friends.
Ev Wivell, the band’s singer, had this to say about these plans: “We’ve always been very meticulous in how we operate as a band and this final chapter is no different. This is something we’ve been planning for a long time. We’re proud of what we’ve built together and we’re excited to share these last songs and go out on a high note. We’ve created a final tour schedule that will allow us to play some of our favorite places one last time, and hit a few that we’ve been neglecting, so keep your ear to the ground for details to be announced.”

More about MINDSET:

Formed in 2008 by a group of friends with a shared love of meaningful hardcore,Mindset have undertaken one of the most enigmatic and genuine paths as a band in recent memory. Their devotion to the DIY spirit has seen them release two EPs and the remarkable “Leave No Doubt” LP through their own REACT! Records, a name now synonymous with passionate and honest hardcore / punk. Despite having members spread throughout DC, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, they continue to call the undeniably ripe Baltimore scene their home. From this base of operation, Mindset have taken their energetic live shows and heartfelt, socially conscious message throughout the country and world, with one last run of shows expected in 2016 to conclude their impressive time together.
