First Warped Tour, now Musikarmageddon! We’ve always steered clear of Battle of the Bands, music-based competitions because we know the value of music doesn’t come from a number scratched on a scorecard, but we will be the first to admit that our experiences in 2014 have been great to us. Saturday’s performance at The Baby Grand in downtown Wilmington earned us the crown as winner of Musikarmageddon 2014. As the out-of-towners, the “wild card”, it was great to let our music speak for itself. Of course we also owe this win to the judges for their expertise and fans for their votes.

But we’re not done with you just yet Wilmington…Catch us Saturday, Oct. 11th for an all-ages show by Our Velocity Productions at Accent Music w/ The Nearly Deads, It Lives, It Breathes, Provoke, Destroy & more. Then on Saturday, Nov. 29th we’ll be on the main stage of Wilmo Rock Circus at World Cafe Live at The Queen.

Special thanks go out to to Jim Miller of Out & About, the venues - Kelly’s Logan House and The Baby Grand, and all the sponsors - Spaceboy Clothing, Accent Music, Gable Music Ventures, TribeSound Studios, 93.7 WSTW Hometown Heroes, and 23rd Century Audio Lighting.

"The Void" Music Video 5 | 28

We tried once with “Into The Night” but were not satisfied with the result. So, instead of giving up we took that song’s advice and have come back strong with our follow up project - Minshara’s first official music video. “The Void,” the second single off IO, is a darker pop ballad that battles with the consequences of addiction in many different shapes and forms. The track pulls its name from two distinct cuts embedded within the choruses and which are presented as such within the video. The video itself builds its own narrative that matches the level of tension and uneasiness found in the lyrical content, vocal melodies, and overall composition. Reminiscent of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland, the story is caught in transition between two realities, concluding with our main character’s realization and acceptance of her ultimate fate.

Working closely with a talented team of good friends and selfless supporters, we were able to produce this video in just two days and without a budget. Regardless of the conditions we are very proud of this video and owe its success to everyone involved. For a full list of production credits and to let us know what you think, visit the video on YouTube. Enjoy!

Check out photos from our live performance on Radio 104.5 - Live at 5 with Wendy Rollins. This was the official debut of our single “Into The Night” since its iTunes release on 4/1 and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. Of course we were nervous with anticipation, but luckily the station was kind enough to wait until we had wrapped to share that the broadcast had reached over 1.5 million listeners…1.5 MILLION! The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we are already looking forward to the next big opportunity. In the meantime you can help us out by downloading our song on iTunes, Amazon, or wherever else you prefer to buy music. Find us next at The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ on Friday 4/11 and Popfest in Dewey Beach, DE on Saturday 5/3.

The full stream will only be available for a limited time, but don’t worry because the track will be available for purchase on iTunes and other digital outlets starting April 1st. In the meantime, help spread the word by sharing this with everyone you know.

It’s that time of year again, and although Spring is on deck the weather has done its job to convince us otherwise. Appropriately enough, this Saturday is VeTour Production’s 3rd Annual Winterfest at The Abbey Bar. This year Minshara has been invited to co-headline the show, sharing the stage with 11 equally talented artists including: Ducky and the Vintage, That Girl, Darry Miller and the Veil, Kid Felix, Very Americans, Stormy Night Sessions, Marissa and The Groove, Flower Garden, Spiderglass, MansionBuilder, and Feed Your Ego. As if that line up isn’t reason enough there will also be a taco bar, and more importantly, a portion of the proceeds will go toward the fight against ALS. This show is 21+, doors open at 6:30PM, and admission is $15. However we do have a limited number of advance tickets available for $10, so contact us to reserve yours before they run out.

"Into The Night" Music Video Shoot 12 | 6

Maybe you were there or maybe you had no clue, but last weekend was the shoot of our very first music video for the upcoming single “Into the Night.” The images don’t capture everything or everyone involved, but nonetheless we thought you may enjoy a brief behind the scenes look at just some of what went down and what is to come from Minshara. There’s no way we could’ve done this alone, so we recruited friends, fans, and a few very talented people to help successfully pull this off.

Orie McGinness and Davis Rider of Enlighten Graphic & Print packed their gear and road tripped up from Richmond, VA to direct, shoot, and edit this project. But weeks before, we sat down with our friend Chris Enterline, an amazingly talented illustrator/comic artist, to brainstorm a narrative and storyboard each scene of the video. He did and excellent job, but once finished we needed to locate the right actors/actresses to fill these roles. We owe it to Rose Freed Dancer, Mr. Gallagher Craftsman, Jeff Boyer Boxer, Davis Rider Bully 1, Horse Bully 2, and Steve Bell Bully 3 for volunteering their time and nailing their parts. A very special thanks goes to everyone who came out for the live performance to participate as our energized and dedicated audience. Lastly, we have to mention Mark Santanna of the The Lingerie Room and everyone at Om My Yoga for allowing us access to their spaces.

We cannot wait to share the final product! This is why we are excited to announce the exclusive premier of our video at the upcoming show “BrunkleBanger Doppelgänger” on Dec. 28th @ HMAC in Harrisburg, PA. An official public release of the single and music video will follow shortly thereafter, but the exact date has not yet been determined so don’t miss out.
