An Era of Institutional Failure

"Drummer Shannon Corr ghost notes his ass off leading the band through passages that mirror Jakob’s emotional resonance before cascading into aggression. In between Matt Solberg’s funkified Don Cab licks, Ben Thorne’s throbbing bass snakes its way through the crowd..." — Invisible Oranges

"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

"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

Pressing Info

An Era of Institutional Failure

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.
