As premiered on DIY
“enough punch to get every nerve ending on red alert. It’s a snarling beast of a track.” – DIY
“Lyrics scathe, guitar riffs snarl, and rhythms pummel their way towards freewheeling sensation” – Upset
“a ripper in the AmRep style” – BrooklynVegan
“An explosion of tightly wound anger designed for dark, crowded venues and energetic motions of reckless abandon, “Demuie” is as freeing as the fire that burns within it.” – The Line of Best Fit
“a masterclass in furious garage punk” – DIY
“From Belgium, these European punks take a shit load of anger for tedium and monotony and write that into some brazen, unhinged garage-punk, as much a statement as a dressing down for every single person not losing themselves to the unmissable sounds they are making.” – Wax Music
“the embodiment of everything that is good about garage rock and punk, fused together it has created a gigantic sound that is layered in fuzzed out riffs and snarling vocals” – Clunk Mag

The Ghent based quartet Mind Rays first appeared on the Belgian music scene in 2013, and have since made a reputation for themselves as one of the best live bands in the region, with countless wild and chaotic gigs in Belgium, Holland and France. Last year they released a split 7” with fellow Ghent act Teen Creeps on Oddie Records and a cassette EP on the Los Angeles based label Gnar Tapes, while supporting the likes of King Khan & The Shrines, Wand, Ausmuteants and Rocket From the Tombs.
Now Mind Rays have signed to PNKSLM Recordings for the release of their debut LP Nerve Endings on March 24 – and it’s simply one of the best garage punk records we’ve heard in a long time, instantly blowing us away on first listen.
