7th top Ranked track for April. - www.Ourstage.com


"A case of the Mondays!"

Admit it. Whether you had a relaxing, exciting, or run-of-the-mill weekend, you still dread waking up in the morning once Monday rolls around. Somehow, someway Mondays (and not to mention rainy days) always bring you down. Funny how that always seems to happen. So before you head off to work to battle with a broken printer, leave for class without your homework assignment, or spill your coffee on your favorite fluffy slippers, check out these tracks to get you moving on the right track! - Mikesplain (Ourstage.com)

"“Thursday” is a very gripping song.""

“Thursday” is a very gripping song. It is driven by the retro guitar rift that all but elaborates on the element of heart break."

"MDR’s latest musical contribution personifies a warm summer night & the cookout’s winding down. Fire pit in full flame. Crackles from burning wood overshadowed by the sounds of Modern Day Ruin being played softly from a speaker nestled on the patio." - Kojak

Bio

Wrapped in inspiring, eclectic, era-influenced musical and lyrical movements, we hear the sounds of a band poised to emerge as a force to be reckoned with. Modern Day Ruin pumps out the sounds of catchy pop hooks paired with the finest electronic persuasions and rock sensibility.

From the Twin Cities, MN music scene, Modern Day Ruin proves to be formidable not only in their home territory, but throughout the entire Midwest. Playing regularly in Michigan, Chicago, Iowa, and Minnesota venues – both renowned and upcoming; have proven to be difficult boundaries for Modern Day Ruin to exist within. Instead, with an ever growing fan base and diverse plays on internet and commercial radio – Modern Day Ruin is growing into the festival circuit. Modern Day Ruin, or MDR as they are sometimes known, look forward to a future rich with serving the fans; delivering great albums and great shows, in a format that is enthralling and captivating for every audience, every performance.

Modern Day Ruin deals with real life. More concisely, they handle the issues that permeate the reality of our society. Be it a member’s struggles expressed in artistry, a family member’s struggle with Parkinson’s and Diabetes, coping with Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, or mental torment and anguish; the real issues that we face as a society cannot always be vented through discussion and study. Sometimes we must express and feel in song and art – this is our passion, because this is our struggle just as it is yours. Modern Day Ruin shares in the same experiences as their fans.

Currently MDR has a new CD "The Current Disconnect" that is available on Itunes.
