    Hot on the heels of their debut 7", Permanent Records is proud to present MIND MELD's debut LP. Limited to 300 copies in heavy duty gatefold jackets!

    Hailing from the vast sprawl of Los Angeles, MIND MELD became one in the early daze of 2015. Their melodic brand of heavy rock'n'roll is catchier and more fully-realized than 99.9% of their peers and their hooks will grab you like a paddle cactus quill and bury themselves deep under your skin, but there will be no pain.

    Members of the unit have played with and/or are current members of other bands, but MIND MELD's sum is greater than it's parts. Something about the band's sound is so natural and organic that it immediately feels like something you've heard before, but you won't be able to place it because it's all original. Influences include, but aren't limited to the Gories, the Stooges, Hawkwind, Edgar Broughton Band (they slay a cover of "Why Can't Somebody Love Me") and a mix of modern Garage and Psychedelic Rock.
    MIND MELD's poppier numbers still have a air of heaviness to them, while their heavy jams can hold their own with the densest of them. The rhythm section is rock solid. Always in the pocket, not too simple, but not overly complex. The guitar is tastefully ripping, grooving along with the drums and bass most of the time, but soaring to the outer limits at just the right moments. A perfect rock'n'roll recipe.

    Their debut "You're Not Free" 7" flexi-disc, which was recorded at Permanent Records in Highland Park, sold out almost immediately and was referred to by Buzz Bands LA as "a buzzing flashback to the groovy ’60s, hooky and unfussy and out of your face in under 2 1/2 minutes."

    They've only been playing live for a little over year and they've already shared stages with Thee Oh Sees, Kid Congo, FIDLAR, Mikal Cronin, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Earthless, Meatbodies, Zig Zags, Feels, and many more.

    This is their first full-length record for Permanent Records.
