8-Bit Fish

I would like to announce few big things. First off, we would like to welcome Dean back to the states. He has spent the last four to five months chilling with movie stars, playing tons of shows and flying through hurricanes. 

After a good week of sleep, Mind Fish will continue to work on what will become the next album. Until then, we are fortunate enough to announce a fan made album in the style of 8-bit video games available for free download. Courtesty of Dylan Roberts (Flapjackage).

Download it for free: http://themindfish.bandcamp.com/album/8-bit-fish-2 

we miss you too,

Any Press Is Good Press

From getting a write up on baeblemusic.com to getting posted on a food blog, Mind Fish video release for "Can't Contrl At All" has been a success. 
Check out a few of the press clippings:

Hey, if you don’t have New Years Eve Eve plans, come watch us “Warm up for the Winter” at the Smiling Moose in Pittsburgh. We are playing with our friends The Beauregards on 12/30 (It’s a Friday Night)…

Stay tuned for a lot of different Mind Fish tracks coming out of the vault this month, including a special Demo’s compilation and a special Christmas song!

For now, we take you back, two and a half years ago to Mind Fish’s second recorded work (and perhaps my favorite), the “Ooo, Who” EP.


Cheers 'n' all that




Big things on the horizon for The Mind Fish.

We are playing Athens Ohio, Halloween Oct. 29th which has to our knowledge is the most happening densely populated halloween block party in the midwest. Put on your costumes and join us on the mainstage on E. State and Court.

The weekend after on Nov. 5th we will be playing a show with national act Electric 6. We have tickets for sale at $10 each (and we are willing to hand deliver them), or you can purchase them on ticketmaster.

We recently got a couple good write ups on Speak Into My Good Eye and A write up in Spains Monasterio De Cultura.

Lastly, Mind Fish shot its first music video in Athens Ohio. It will be sometime before its released.

Support Rock Music

Back in the winter of 2011, Mind Fish began recording our first full length studio album with assistance from well respected producer, Eddie Ashworth (Sublime, Dokken, Great White, The High Strung and many more ). As August ended we found the recording process to be completed. The studio process was a fascinating experience, but the next step of our journey is what we hope to be the most amazing part!

We want to professionally master the album through Peerless Mastering in Boston. After this process we are going to press 1,000 copies of the full length album for physical distribution. As you probably know, this isn't the cheapest step in the recording process, and will run us a pretty penny. We will be heading out on the road for about fifteen plus shows over the next two months (September-November) to promote the album and give out two new songs at our shows. The travels will help fund our project to a modest extent, but Kickstarter seemed like the perfect option for us. Not only is it a great forum to gain support for a project such as this, but it is also an incredible tool for us to give back to the people who have supported us for the past three years.
