Steven Scott - Guitars & Vocals Adam Cote - Drums Jerry Houle - Bass & Vocals The musical journey began in the fall of 2004. Steven Scott and Adam Cote were looking for a new bassist due to the breakup of their last musical engagement. Jerry Houle, a drummer by trade, contacted Steven in hopes for a tryout on bass guitar. They met at a local watering hole with Steven not knowing what Jerry looked liked...but Steven knew instinctively by the loud voice coming from the other end of the bar. Mindset X was now complete. During the first few sessions together the band agreed on one thing - strive to create something unique and create the music that THEY loved with hopes that others would feel the same. The wide ranging influences of each member, from progressive metal to punk, set the course for the music. Months after forming, Mindset X released their first self produced CD titled "Statecraft". No longer in print, Statecraft was a conceptual piece and a bold move for a young band to make. But they made it anyway. In the winter of 2006, after touring New England to create a name for them selves, Mindset X released their next CD, \'Physics\'. Physics was a more matured compilation of music and contained, to this day, one of the bands most requested live songs, "Atmosphere". It was during the touring for Physics that Joe O'Brien, owner of Rat Pak Records, started to take notice of the band. Mindset X was signed to Rat Pak a short time later. Mindset X continued to write in 2006 while playing weekly around New England. They soon gained a reputation as one of the premier live bands to see, combining a highly energetic stage show with a noticeable passion for what they loved to do. A short year later, Mindset X self produced and released \'Generation Rx\'. GRX was an ambitious album, heavier than their previous, and showcased the playing abilities of the band. "Suicide Girl" and more notably, "Ghosts in Boston" became live anthems. GRX received rave reviews from their fans and was a top seller for Rat Pak Records in 2007. The music just kept on flowing. In the fall of the same year, the band decided to try a different avenue and entered Drumlin Downe studios to record a single for the label. In true Mindset X fashion, they ended up recording 5 new songs, and released \'Bipolar\' in the fall of 2007. Bipolar showcased the growth of the band and songs such as "Day after Day" and "Shore" were added to their live show. In order to spread the word about MSX, Bipolar was given away for free. But they weren't done. They wanted to finish the album. Released on April 15th, 2008, \'Thread\' is the bands 4th full length release since it's conception in late 2004. Thread contains 4 re-recorded songs from Bipolar and 7 new songs. "This album is something we are very proud of. It wasn't rushed and having no set time table gave us the ability to create with no pressure involved." Steven Scott explains. "I truly believe this is our best work to date." Dubbed by many as one of the hardest working bands in the area, Mindset X continues to evolve, create, and surpass even their own expectations.
