MIND POWER TO RELEASE SELF TORTURE JAN 29TH

So, 2020 was one for the books, right?

We’re getting things sorted out over here to help ring in our 25th year, so we figured ‘Why not start things in a heavy groove?’

Without a doubt Mind Power is the heaviest band we’ve ever worked with, and it’ll be some time before we release an all out assault on your ears as thundering and groove heavy as Self Torture. Featuring vocals from ex-A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows and a lineup that includes former members of Ligeia, Dead End Path, and Bring the Heat, do we even need to name drop guest appearances on Self Torture by Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco just to name a few? Wait, we just did.

Even without those guest appearances Mind Power’s effort on Self Torture is nothing short of brutal and exhausting.

The foundation for this release lies in the band’s prolific writing and recording throughout 2018 and 2019. Originally released as quarterly digital only releases, the 11 tracks off of Self Torture read like a book that’s woven from those releases with a cathartic, brutally honest, and at times self deprecating voice. Remastered by heavy music heavyweight Alan Douches, Mind Power’s first physical release has been given a while glove treatment by means of a limited Translucent Red/Black Splatter and White vinyl gatefold LP pressing. Originally slated for a 2020 release, we’re excited to finally get this out into the world. Vinyl ordering goes live next Friday, January 22nd, and digital drops on your favorite streaming service Friday, January 29th. Stay tuned for me details on that vinyl!

Jump Start is stoked to announce the latest and much overdue (as well) full-length effort from our favorite Chicago sons, All Eyes West.
