An Era of Institutional Failure

"Pairing the complexity of Tool with the lean, direct playing of early Dischord post-hardcore, Equal/Opposite is an album full of meticulously-mapped songs that reveal new crevices and corners every minute..." — Wondering Sound

"post-punk energy and relaxed tones of something from the world of the psychedelic..." — Arctic Drones

"it is rare to see such definition carried by each band member..." — Pulse

"An instrumental 3-piece like no other out there, Minot is upping the ante for non-vocal bands..." — Pop! Blerd

"If you want to get excited about instrumental music, listen to this. If you want to know what more can come from a very promising band, listen to this and whet your appetite for more in the future..." — Made of Chalk

"Call it proggy or post-rock… fact is that this shit is good!" — Punk Rock Theory

"Minot puts experimentalism and fury back into post-rock..." — Ghettoblaster Magazine

"heavy, pretty, swirling, cathartic, epic, anthemic rock that dips and dives before veering up and soaring towards something resembling musical transcendence..." — Oh My Rockness

"MINOT, whose energetic, at times playful, style proves post-rock doesn't have to be brooding or ear-splitting to evoke emotion..." — East Bay Express

Pressing Info

- the band self-released 200 hand-made CDs w/screen printed packaging, hand-numbered. We handle digital distribution for this release, with a possible physical release sometime in the future.

The band burned 200 copies of their 5-song debut EP “An Era of Institutional Failure” and hand screen sprinted the packaging themselves for their west coast 2012 fall tour. We have a few copies available in the webstore, all hand numbered. We’re also distributing the EP digitally for them, so you can find it on iTunes, Bandcamp, or any other DSP.
