I THE MIGHTY RELEASE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW RECORD “WHERE THE MIND WANTS TO GO / WHERE YOU LET IT GO”
San Francisco’s I the Mighty took a bold step forward creatively today with the release of their highly-anticipated new album Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go on Equal Vision Records. Already one of the most progressive voices in alternative rock, Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go sees the band exploring new territory both sonically and topically. It is a collection of nine artistically mature, meticulously crafted rock anthems that sees lead vocalist, Brent Walsh, tackling the topics that have helped shape his own personal growth since the release of their last album; both in terms of life experience and in regards to more abstract topics. You can stream the record now on YouTube or Spotify and purchase the album through the band’s webstore.
The band has released three diverse offerings from Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go over the past few months. While “Silver Tongues” (featuring Tilian from Dance Gavin Dance) and “Where The Mind Wants To Go” exhibit an elevated take on the brand of rock that the band has built their following on, “Chaos In Motion” sees them dipping into previously uncharted territory with the help of producer Casey Bates (Portugal. The Man) and mix engineer Neal Aaron (Twenty One Pilots, Walk The Moon). The band premiered “Chaos In Motion” via an OCD-trigger video which was picked up by Viral Thread whose post about the track/visual has amassed over 1.3 million plays.
Overall, Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go is the sort of adrenaline-fueled, kinetic record that creates the perfect balance between experimentalism and the sort of relatable magnetism that is at the core of all the best rock anthems. It taps into a bigger picture that indicates the band is really starting to scratch the surface of what they’re capable as artists.
