Mineral in Glasgow!!

11th February 2015. Tickets on sale Friday.


Texan, emo pioneers Mineral have signed a worldwide deal (excluding North America) with Xtra Mile Recordings, who will reissue their two seminal albums The Power of Failing and Endserenading, each on double 45 RPM vinyl, on 20 October 2014. Xtra Mile will also release ‘Mineral – 1994-1998’ a 2x CD compilation of both The Power Of Failing and Endserenading with bonus material and previously unreleased tracks to get the uninitiated up to speed in time for some live performances.


Mineral formed in 1994 and disbanded in 1997 just before the release of their second album Endserenading. Despite a surprisingly small amount of time together, they’ve been cited as inspiration by a host of bands and artists, including Xtra Mile’s very own Frank Turner. Taking the baton from mid-nineties emo band Sunny Day Real Estate, they crystallised the slow, melodic loud/quiet dynamic that wax sealed the genre, crafting an eternally distinctive and beloved sound. Their debut album The Power of Failing is a passionate pane to spirituality and love, bathed in crescendos of hollered guitar, while posthumous follow-up Endserenading – finished after the official split of the group – broods and simmers with patience, pain and redemption. Both albums are recognised as essential, packed with trailblazing cuts which have since informed plenty of peers and imitators, while never being bettered.
