the legend of minshara
The origin of the word "Minshara" comes from the Vulcan term for a classification of planet that is capable of sustaining human-life. Minshara is a high-energy, electronic pop rock band from Pennsylvania. Since 2011, Minshara has toured across the United States sharing the stage with a variety of acts including Hollywood Undead, Flyleaf, The Contortionist, Chon, He Is Legend, SayWeCanFly... just to name a few.
In June of 2014, Minshara self-released their first full-length album entitled "iO", Produced by Taylor Larson (Asking Alexandria, Periphery, From First To Last). This record became the break-out album for the band's career and a culmination of several years of writing music together.
After 3 years of countless shows, festivals, and a ton of support from what is now referred to as "Minshara Nation", the band traveled to Marigolds & Monster Studios in Atlanta, Georgia to record their upcoming EP, "Overnights" with Producer, Matt Malpass (Train, Issues, Dance Gavin Dance) and Matt Holmes (Bobby Church, SayWeCanFly).
The "Overnights" EP is a step in a new direction for the bands' unique and enigmatic sound. The first single, "Superstition" was released on March 27th 2018 on iTunes & Spotify. While staying true to their sound, "Superstition" taps into their radio-friendly ambitions with catchy melodies and universal lyrics of unrequited love.
"Overnights" has nods to their past with songs like "The Escape" and "Gravity" that capture not just the familiar side of Minshara but also the new direction of funky pop-sensibility of where they are going. "We even dug deep into our old inspirations with the song, "Winter is Coming". I always dreamed of writing some Brian Wilson-esque 3-part harmonies and we actually pulled it off on this record".
"Overnights" will be released on Friday April 13th 2018 in stores everywhere on Polar Phat Records.
