Criminal Mind was formed in September 2008 on the outskirts of Bristol (UK). Inspired by Black Flag, Bad Brains & The Ruts, they seek to vent social/political frustrations through their original hardcore-street-punk sound. In 2010 and at 18 years old the band wrote and produced the ‘Debut Album’ in Josh and Jake's dining room.
The band used amps that only worked when you hit them, guitars with necks that are still snapped to this day, and half a real drum kit. In February 2020, Criminal Mind commissioned a virtual music event at the iconic 'The Fleece' venue in Bristol only this was the virtual equivalent. This insanely imaginative band created a dream-like storyline which is reflected in the teaser trailer.
