MINDLESS FAITH NEWS UPDATE - SEPT 2008

- M/F Live in Europe, first shows since 2006 Pig Tour!
- Remixes released - Mindless Faith and Third Realm

Before we get to that, we want to give you a quick look at the way it
is from the inside, as opposed to the way it appears from the outside.
Since we just tell you the good stuff, you have an incomplete view of
how things really are.

We'd also like to send a sincere thanks to the people who bought a
copy of our latest album, "Medication for the Misinformed" and prior
CDs. It's only through your support that we've kept going.

But the reality is that we're "pretty much fucked." Like most bands,
we just try to put together music that resonates with us and anyone
who cares to listen. Like most bands, we've always plugged away at
day jobs to fund our night job. And like most bands, our sales are
in the toilet. There is no big-time studio. There is no team of
producers, lawyers, and the like. There are no profits, just a small
DiY operation trying to break even. But unfortunately, we have still
lost thousands of dollars over the last 12 years.

We've had some accomplishments through the years, but the majority
were nothing more than hollow victories. We're not sure what the
future holds. We're trying to keep going but it keeps getting harder
to do so.

We understand that these days, financial troubles are more common.
But if you enjoy our music, please consider supporting our efforts.
Due to the state of the economy we are offering a "BAILOUT BANDS NOT
BANKS" discount. From now until Oct 1st, you can order "Medication for the Misinformed" directly from us for only 10USD

go to http://www.alterculture.com/acproduct.htm

**Note - this offer is only through our website. CDs and mp3's are
also available as usual at most retailers, including CDBaby, dsbp.cx,
industrial-music.com (Metropolis), itunes.com, and many more.

Mindless Faith - Live in Holland (first shows ever in Europe!!)

Fri Oct 3 - Utrecht, Holland - CYBERIA at Tivoli

http://www.tivoli.nl/

Sat Oct 4 - Alkmarr, Holland - PSYGOTHIC PARTY at Parkhof

http://www.poppodiumalkmaar.nl/

Sincere thanks to DJ -X-X-X- of CYBERCASE for booking us! We didn't
get to play at this year's Republican National Convention, but we're
glad to get Holland instead. :-)

Also, after, Exeris will be in Berlin Oct 7 thru the 12th, if anyone
wants to do an interview, needs a DJ or VJ, knows of any good parties
happening, or has an extra bed, get in touch!

_______________________


Explanation for lack of shows for the last two years:

You may have noticed that we haven't performed live since the 2006
tour with Pig. They were cool people to hang out with, no problems at
all with them personally. Pig also did not do the industry practice
of making the opening band sound worse on purpose, and even told the
club, so that we got the same good sound and lights as Pig.

But after the first show in Florida, Pig told us they couldn't pay us
what they promised. Being in Florida, miles away from home with no
way back, we reluctantly agreed to a lesser amount to keep the tour
going. When the tour finally disintegrated, they split without paying
us for 3 of the 4 weeks. We have tried to get paid by Pig, but no
response. Various bullshit has been all too common with live shows,
not just Pig. Which is why such a sincere thanks to DJ -X-X-X- of
CYBERCASE for, doing everything he has said he would so far.

MORE REVIEWS OF "MEDICATION FOR THE MISINFORMED":

"an edgy, well produced heavyweight with engaging lyrics, captivating
synthscapes, and a diverse yet familiar finish"
4.5 out of 5 -
http://www.regenmag.com/Reviews-1226-Mindless-Faith-Medication-for-the-Misinformed.html

"the second best industrial release of the year"
- http://movementmusicreviews.blogspot.com/2007/12/mindless-faith.html

From raucous and demanding to brittle corners of introspection, this
album is addictive, different, and is certainly a must-have for this
season.
8/9 - http://www.side-line.com/reviews_comments.php?id=27379_0_17_0_C

A big recommendation!!!
9 out of 10 -
http://www.reflectionsofdarkness.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2712&Itemid=44
(Note this is a good thorough review, and one of the few that explains:
'Darkhall' because of its rhythmic structure which is pretty unusual
for an industrial track but typical for a style called 'Dancehall'
which is a more electronic form of reggae.)

"this album needs at least a few spins more than usual, because the
stuff and content doesn't come out that accessible as expected. The
patient listener will rewarded with a thick and layered sounding
Electro/Metal-Crossover-album, which has its own charisma."
3.5 out of 5 - http://www.chaindlk.com/reviews/?id=4064.

"this is a smart, well-produced album that offers an intense listening
experience and some definite dance floor grooves."
8 out of 10 - http://vampirefreaks.com/musicreviews/comment.php?entry=3942

"this is a splashing album with heavy EBM and rock, packed into quite
catchy tunes with many layers of sound, which connects the band to the
sound of top industrial bands from the 90's such as Front Line
Assembly."

QUOTES FROM EUROPEAN PRESS:

"Album of the Month"
"An extremely diverse affair with an apocalyptic flair. 'Medication
For The Misinformed" is a well-produced, varied and captivating work,
which can and should be listened to from start to finish. A must-buy
for fans of electro-guitar crossover." - Zillo Magazine

"Newcomer of the Month"
"... the Americans thoroughly dust off the coffer of electro and
present with their latest work not the usual fare but a pile of
multi-faceted compositions that will get many an electro fan's blood
pumping." - Orkus Magazine

"Beautiful, forbiddingly menacing and nasty. Catchy and cross-grained.
This release finds the US trio playing with the full range of musical
expression. A candid style and an acute sense for how to craft a song
from a conglomeration of sound makes 'Medication For The Misinformed'
an outstanding album. 9/10" - Gothic Magazine

"... hard, icey, and deeply cynical lyrics, packaged in cutting edge,
invidious industrial. 'Medication For The Misinformed' is an excellent
work, hard, intelligent, and enthralling in typical American
Industrial style, and one which is sure to win the hearts of the
fans." - whiskey-soda.de

"...here is a band clearly on their way to the top. If this album
isn't a massive hit with the hard electro crowd, the end is truly
nigh." - uselinks.de

"THE modern sound of Elektro/Industrial-Crossover! The new album
rocks!" - elektrauma.de

Thanks Europe!

USA where are you?

Until next time,
Mindless Faith

     Announcing new MINDLESS FAITH CD

Oct 04 2007



New MINDLESS FAITH CD - MEDICATION FOR THE MISINFORMED

US release October 16, 2007
EU release October 26, 2007


PRE-ORDERS NOW BEING ACCEPTED!

In the shadows of Washington DC and its criminal regime, Mindless Faith returns with Medication for the Misinformed - a lethal dose of dark electronics and industrial anthems, laced with heavy beats and charged vocals. After years of war and campaigns of misinformation, it is still politics as usual in the "land of the free". The media is still for sale and the citizen-consumers are still prey to the trappings of pop culture...an opiate of the masses who don't even realize they're addicts. But the images on the screen are only a placebo, if not a poison.

Against this mindless status quo, Medication for the Misinformed is a musical shot in the arm and a socially-provocative slap in the face. Shadowland.no says the sound is "all power, fury, and drive," even when elements of world music, ambient, and trance are fused into the industrial-strength mix of noise, distorted synths, and abrasive guitars. To the extent that such diversity crossed into schizophrenia on previous releases, Mindless Faith have worked these different elements into a cohesive framework and trademark sound on Medication for the Misinformed. Reviews are starting to come in, especially in the German magazines where Medication for the Misinformed has been called "a varied and thrilling piece of work which you should listen through from beginning to end" (Zillo) and "a perfect mix of power and atmospheric tightness and the most impressive Electro-Industrial import in years. (Negatief)

Mindless Faith's third full length CD, Momentum, was released in 2004 to North America on Metropolis Records and in Europe on Dependent Records, where it debuted at #7 on the DAC German Alternative Charts. Mindless Faith also released two prior albums, The Silence and Manifest Destiny, both on their own label AlterCulture Records. Their music has also been featured on over 20 compilations, MTV's reality shows "Road Rules" and "The Real World", and on the X-box 360 video game, "Project Gotham Racing 3".

Mindless Faith toured the United States in 2006 with Pig, in addition to performances throughout the years with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Bella Morte, Hanzel und Gretyl, Asche, and many, many others. And thanks to their blistering remix of the Nine Inch Nails track "Only", Mindless Faith won remix contests in four cities and was invited backstage to meet Trent Reznor and crew during the NIN tour in November 2005.

Pre-orders are now being accepted. In North America, Medication for the Misinformed can be ordered directly through Mindless Faith at their own AlterCulture Records online store (www.alterculture.com). The CD will also be carried by other retailers and distributed primarily by Metropolis Records. Outside of North America, Medication for the Misinformed will be available through Dependent Records (www.dependent.de).

Release parties with Mindless Faith DJ sets have already been booked in Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Washington DC, with more to follow. Details will be emailed and posted online. Any promoters interested in booking should go to the CONTACT section of the Mindless Faith website.

     (MF side-project) GRAINS OF SOUND debut CD's

Jul 23 2007


AlterCulture Records announces the release of two debut CD's from Mindless Faith's ambient chillout side-project, Grains of Sound:

"Rays of Life Vol. 1 Down" and "Vol. 2 Under"



DEBUT CHILLOUT CD'S NOW AVAILABLE!

"Rays of Life Vol. 1 Down" contains 10 downtempo tracks in the vein of Mindless Faith's slower tracks while "Rays of Life Vol. 2 Under" contains 11 ambient tracks in the vein of Mindless Faith's rare ambient tracks.

Both CD's are currently available for sale at www.alterculture.com and will be available through other outlets in the coming weeks, and iTunes, etc. in the coming months.

AlterCulture started as a label for Mindless Faith to release their music on their own but eventually signed other artists as well. The label closed down once Mindless Faith decided to sign with Metropolis and Dependent. But now with the release of Mindless Faith's side-project Grains of Sound and the new Mindless Faith CD in Sept, AlterCulture has been revived.
