BASTIAN KILLJOY TO SUPPORT MIND OVER MATTER!
With the release of their new album This Way To elsewhere, Mind Over Matter have smashed their way into the charts with their album debuting at #6 on iTunes and #61 on the ARIA charts. The good people at I Forget Sorry & Big Tree Artists have put together a national tour and I am proud to announce that I will be supporting MOM for the Melbourne leg of this tour along with artist Tys on the 11th of July.
After the success of powerful new single What They Say, featuring guest verses from hip-hop heavyweights and touring buddies Bliss N Eso, Sydney duo Mind Over Matter are primed to deliver their highly anticipated third LP This Way To Elsewhere – out May 30 via Permanent/Shock Records (pre-order from iTunes or JB Hi-Fi)
and will be hitting the road this June/July.
Mind Over Matter (MCs Willow and Smiles Again) have gone from strength to strength since the 2006 release of their debut mixtape For Our Hip Hoppers. Their rapid musical growth can be heard on the world-class production of This Way To Elsewhere. Pre-production on the album took place over a two week period with producer Matik (Seth Sentry, Pez, Bliss N Eso) and multi-instrumentalist Jon Reichardt at a holiday house in the beautiful Salamander Bay. The remainder of the album was recorded at Smiles Again’s Sydney studio The Swordfish Tank.
Once the record was complete, the band headed to Chicago for an intensive mixing process with Craig Bauer (Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West). “When we set out to make this album we wanted the most universal sound we could achieve. We’re stoked with what we cooked up,” says Smiles Again of the record.
Mind Over Matter also will be hitting the road nationally throughout June/July to bring their highly evolved sound to you live, and show the world why they’re a force to be reckoned with.
