“THE INSTRUMENTS NEVER SURVIVE, THIS IS REBEL SOUND & ROCK’N’ROLL"

Criminal Mind formed in September 2008 on the outskirts of Bristol (UK). Inspired by Black Flag, Bad Brains & The Ruts, they seek to vent social/political frustrations through their original hardcore-street-punk sound.

In 2010 and at 18 years old the band wrote and produced the ‘Debut Album’ in Josh and Jake's dining room. The band used amps that only worked when you hit them, guitars with necks that are still snapped to this day and half a real drum kit. This process, along with getting arrested during their first tour for facilitation, pushed the album release date as far back as 2012. Since then the band have refined it’s sound and worked tirelessly to write and produce 2015’s ‘Life to Defend’. Criminal Mind have played & toured alongside some big names such as The Ruts, Sham 69, The Buzzcocks, UK Subs, Cockney Rejects & many more, across the world. The band is always on the road and have much more in the pipeline. Let’s fucking go!

- Mike Davies BBC Radio 1 presented the band as “young upstarts”.
- “The best unsigned punk around” - Room Thirteen’s Jim Ody.
- Big Cheese Magazine; “Sterling first full-length album from Bristol street punks”.
