MODERN MIMES is bringing Goth power metal to the grateful masses


 MODERN MIMES Their music can be best described as "Future Goth," a term they coined in order to explain the fusion of alternative heavy guitar riffs, powerfully haunting vocals, subconscious provoking lyrics, electronic drums, and catchy pop melodies. The band has released a new video for their single "Mind Lies" and have announced tour dates with Wayland and Eve to Adam that kicks off on May 22nd at The Blue Note in Harrison, Ohio.

After almost 3 years of quietly creating and crafting their sound, Modern Mimes released their debut album "Wake Up" in early 2017. Their single "Love Hate," premiered on Blank TV and their video, directed by Carla Forte, was selected at various film festivals. They followed up their debut album with a cover of Type O Negative's "I don't Wanna Be Me." The Goth Metal Legends not only approved of the cover but quickly promoted the single and video before it's release. " I Don't Wanna Be Me" has resulted in a successful 27k+ views on Youtube and was featured on Loudwire.com amongst other media outlets.

“This is great-this band Modern Mimes approached this cover just as type o would have: changed the tempo and feel of it and made it their own. Tones and mix are great as well. It sounds as if Type O did a cover of Type O. Amazing job. I love this. Its better than our version.”

— Type O Negative

The duo has performed 2 years in a row at Riptide Music Festival, the biggest two day Alternative and Classic Hits music festival in Fort Lauderdale. They also toured the Southeastern United States, SXSW, and have a session on Balcony TV. In addition, they played WJRR's Earthday Birthday this year with Godsmack and Three Days Grace.

Modern Mimes is a perfectly chaotic reflection of the inner workings of Adi & Ernesto who create music in hopes of inspiring listeners to journey through their subconscious and look within. Their sophomore album The Gray released in the Fall of 2018 and was produced by Rick Lander (Flaw & Dead Horse Trauma) and Anthony Santonocito ( John Hampson (Nine Days) & Brianna Taylor).
