Don’t Mind Dying

“Genre tags are played out, but if you had to slap a label on Don’t Mind Dying, neo-classic rock would be apt. The Columbia band bears resemblance to everyone from The Black Crowes to Black Sabbath yet plays with an uncaged urgency that puts it squarely in the moment.”

– Aarik Danielsen – Columbia Tribune

BIO:
By reading just a couple of reviews of Don’t Mind Dying’s self titled EP from earlier this year it’s easy to say that the Columbia MO band has come a long way since it’s formation in 2008 by bassist Graham Greer and vocalist Brian BC Craig. During the first four years of their existence Craig and Greer, along with guitarist Kurt Otto and drummer Jeremy McCalister (later to be replaced by Jason Stegall), formed what would be the back bone of DMD’s sound by hashing out a heavy and dark blues foundation based mainly around somewhat unconventional cover tunes that ranged from Muddy Waters to the Beatles and everything in between. In 2012, shortly after the addition of keyboardist Rudy Brynac, DMD parted ways with Otto and Stegall and brought on board drummer Brian Kent and guitarist Jason Caton. It was at this time that the real magic started brewing! With the new members firmly in place the band adopted a truly powerhouse sound and started filling up local venues like The Bridge, Mojo’s, and Roxy’s on a weekly basis and soon had built themselves up as one of the biggest drawing bands in the area. At the end of the summer of 2012, after the release of the their first official recording and a string of successful local shows, they were asked to perform at Columbia’s famous Root’s N Blues N BBQ festival and shared the bill with the likes of Al Green, John Mayall, Marty Stewart, and Esperanza Spalding. It was at this time that the real sound of Don’t Mind Dying started to emerge in the way of a string of hard driving original songs which would lead to the recording of their newest album, the before mentioned “Don’t Mind Dying EP”. Shortly after, Brynac departed the band and was replaced by Travis McFarlane on keys which rounded out the current line up. Caton, Craig, Greer, Kent, and McFarlane continue to blaze the trail of their local legacy and are currently playing live shows and working on new songs for a soon to be recorded full length LP which should be available sometime in early 2015.
