Bio

The band "Mindway" has been playing on the Czech and International music scene since 2003. From the beginning, the band insisted on a high level of songwriting and musicianship.

In September 2003, "Mindway" started to write their own songs and in December 2003 they recorded their first three-song EP titled "Rulez". During 2004, the "Rulez" CD was enhanced with a multimedia track, which included two videos ("Place 4 Truce" and "Reality"), as well as photos, etc.

Mindway's first live show was held in Prague, Czech Republic in May 2004 and the concert was a big success. The band’s shows demonstrate a perfect combination of high energy, live instruments and samples in an original mix of music styles. Their songs consist of emo-rock, dance, world music and alternative, with alternative-metal as the foundation. Mindway's music is coming from the same mold as bands like "Faith No More", "Korn" and "Placebo" with a super-structure of electro music inspired by bands like "Depeche Mode", "Prodigy" and "Asian Dub Foundation". Mindway usually ends their original emo-alternative-metal shows with a special live video projection.

In the last 18 months, Mindway played over 55 club and festival shows in the Czech Republic and abroad. They were invited to most of the biggest Czech festivals (e.g. "Noc Plna Hvezd" (Star-filled Night), "Trutnov Open Air", "Benatska Noc", "Sazavafest", "Nokia Strahov Open Air", etc.). They were also invited to one of the biggest European festivals – "Przystanek Woodstock 2004" in Poland (about 300.000 visitors), where the "Reality" video was shot. In August 2004, Mindway was chosen as the best band of "Rockpreis Festival" in Annaberg, Germany. "Dinxpop Festival" (Netherlands, April 2005) asked Mindway to be one of headliners.

In late 2004, Mindway recorded their second three-song EP "Back On Feet" (recorded at Steep Forest studio, co-produced by Milan Steigerwald). In February 2005, the band released their promo DVD "Rulez" which includes photos, videos and an interview in English.

Mindway have also succeeded abroad with their recordings. Their song, "Place 4 Truce", appeared on "One Giant Step" – a British compilation of the best new alternative bands from all over the world (Matchbox Recordings LTD., UK, 2004). Mindway’s song "Back On Feet" will appear on another British compilation in early spring 2006 (Nova Bomb Records). One of the band’s songs shall also appear on a U.S. compilation in 2006. Mindway’s songs have received airplay on Czech and foreign alternative/rock radio stations. Since the summer of 2005, the band has been working on new songs which they plan to record for their first full-length album.
