Mineral with Into It. Over It.

Mineral

Eventually the band relocated to Austin, TX and a debut single, Gloria b/w Parking Lot, on Caulfield Records followed, as did more touring. Via a zine editor in Colorado, the single found it’s way to Jeff Matlow at crank! A RECORD COMPANY, which eventually led to an album deal and the release of The Power Of Failing in 1996.

Upon the release of the first album, Mineral quickly emerged as one of the leaders in the burgeoning indie / emo music scene. College radio loved the record. The press gushed about the band. It was inevitable that the major labels would come calling. Interscope Records eventually won the major label beauty contest and signed the band.

Such were the circumstances when the band went into Big Fish Studios in San Diego, California with Mark Trombino (Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World) to record one final record for crank! A RECORD COMPANY. EndSerenading was the result. The songs for the record had not come easily, nor did the recording of them. But the album was strong, emotional and daring. It was a Mineral album.

And then it was over. The perfunctory “creative differences” statement was issued. The album was released and new bands were formed. Christopher and Jeremy went on to form The Gloria Record and Gabe founded Pop Unknown.

In a short amount of time, Mineral’s poignant dynamics combined with impassioned lyrics about coming of age was influencing bands everywhere, and still inspires new bands in the indie scene today.

2014 marks the bands 20th anniversary.
