Mindless Self Indulgence is the breath of fresh air that is sure to offend your p.c. restrained, category demanding, humorless peers.

Current Release:
In April 2005 MSI released their latest record "You'll Rebel To Anything" through Metropolis Records. The album debuted at 107 on the Billboard Top 200 and topped the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 1. "Rebel" also enjoyed strong showings on Billboard's Indie, Hard Rock and Internet Sales charts.

Touring:
MSI have sold out headlining shows at venues of 1000+ capacity across North America throughout 2002-2004, completely self-financed and without soliciting support from commercial radio or major video channels. Many dates even sold out without any print advertising or radio promotion whatsoever, including 3 nights in a row at the 1100 capacity Irving Plaza in NYC (December 12th-14th 2003). Fans traveled from 28 different states as well as 4 foreign countries to attend those shows. In the past, MSI have supported System of a Down, KoRn, Staind, Sum 41 and Rammstein amongst others and are eager to tour internationally. They have acquired a hardcore following of fans that compete for how many of the band's shows they can see in row. In October of 2003 MSI performed at the massive 3 day Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans sharing a stage with artists such as Iggy Pop, Marilyn Manson, The White Stripes, A Perfect Circle and Queens of the Stone Age. Due to the great interest in the group, they went from an opener to a headliner in the Mojave tent at the 2004 Coachella Festival. Although both Radiohead and Kraftwerk were performing just yards away and at the same time, it didn't take away from the density or enthusiasm for MSI's show.

MSI are currently touring the U.S. headlining 1000-2200 seat theaters. The band headlined a 3 night stand at NYC's Webster Hall on July 8th, 9th and 10th/2005 and has sold out the Metro in Chicago twice in 6 weeks! They are now playing a handful of dates in Europe and coming back to N. America for another month of dates, including the first US Download Music Festival and the 2005 Voodoo Music Festival!
