Illinois Hard Rockers MIND DROP have released their new single “Dissect” from their forthcoming EP The Awakening, available digitally 9/10 via THC Music/Ingrooves. Recorded at Johnny K’s (Disturbed, Staind, Nonpoint) Groovemaster Studio with Producer Matt Dougherty, The Awakening marks the quintet’s second outing with vocalist Shauna Lisse, who was recruited in 2001, and a lineup rounded out by Guitarists Adam Deases and Jason Beck, Bassist Chris Ruzic and Drummer Robert Bull. Mind Drop has previously topped the IAC Hard Rock Charts and Cashbox Magazine Charts with their singles "Situations" and "Monster", the latter being nominated for a 2008 IAIA Golden Kayak award.
Releasing their debut EP in 2007, and a 2008 full–length follow up, Mind Drop has already cemented their place as seasoned veterans of the Midwest Rock Scene, sharing stages with luminary artists including; FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, OBLIGE, OTEP, ANEW REVOLUTION, EYES SET TO KILL, NINETAIL, EARLY GRAVES, VANILLA ICE, ANOTHER BLACK DAY, EGYPT CENTRAL, REV THEORY, DROWNING POOL, UNDER THE FLOOD, HURT, CAVO, PROSPECT HILL, BOBAFLEX, EYE EMPIRE, WAYLAND & more.
The band was also recently announced on the REVERBNATION stage at Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin Rock staple WIIL ROCK’s annual Summer festival, August 24th in Twin Lakes Wisconsin.
Despite borrowing tried-and-true elements of classic Hard Rock and Metal, Mind Drop has created their own Hard Rock assault. In 2009, their single "Light It Up" hit the top 10 on both FMQB's and CMJ charts, reaching #6 on both with 38 and 58 adds, respectively.
The band will release their new EP in October, in conjunction with LA’s THC: MUSIC, and continue touring throughout the year.
The track listing for the EP is as follows : Dissect, Sickened, Contaminate and The Call
