Mind of Doll, 2013 Summary
2013 has been an awesome year for Mind Of Doll!
The band finally got back to business after a long hiatus, with injuries and ill health keeping us off the road and out of the studio for months. Erik broke his knee, Ville almost fell 40m on a construction site and was saved only by his safety harness and missed several months behind the drums, Visa broke his foot whilst diving in Thailand and Ide suffered from chronic wrist problems after years of pounding the strings. Finally, Sakari underwent successful back surgery after years of struggling with pain and mobility. I guess we're not that young anymore ;)
In January we played a rare acoustic gig at Bar Bäkkäri, Helsinki giving some of our fans and close friends a chance to hear some new material from the new album. The set included acoustic versions of ´Bad Shivers´ and ´Indians´ but also covers ´Wide Awake´ (The Fishfaces), ´Rain´ (The Cult) and ´Wild Horses´ (The Rolling Stones) among others.
The year really kicked off with the release of our second full length album 'Shame On Your Shadow' on the 8th of February in Finland, and the 5th of March in Europe via Inverse Records. At this point the band wishes to say a massive thankyou to Jaakko Tarvainen from Inverse Records for his great work. 'Shame On Your Shadow' reached number 13 on the official album charts by week 8!
The album release party was held on the 1st of March in our hometown of Vantaa at the Vernissa Theatre. It was an unforgettable night for all of us, featuring fireartists from Tuliryhmä Polte as well as supporting performances from Finnish living legend Mika Järvinen and his Duo, and a rare solo performance from the band's long time friend, English Blues pianist & singer Louie Digman. The band deployed a killer set featuring all the songs from 'Shame On Your Shadow' and several old favourites such as 'Marks On My Face' and 'Miss Pretty', giving the audience a kick-ass 90 minute show. Once again Mind Of Doll would like to thank all the supporting acts and artists who came along to help us launch the album and our friends, fans and family in the audience who helped us take the roof off the place. Without question, it was on the highlights of our year!
This year we have also had the privilege to support such acts as Reckless Love (Apollo, Turku, May 30th), all-girl rockers Barbe-Q-Barbies (Tavastia, Helsinki, Jul 20th) and Dog Days Revolution, a Finnish rock band featuring legends such as Twist Twist Erkinharju and Tz Kettula (Tavastia, Helsinki Oct 21st & On The Rocks, Helsinki Dec 13th).
In May the band spent a weekend in Estonia promoting the new album, playing a gig in Tallinn and shooting the music video for a song 'Dead A.M.' The video was directed by Finnish artist and director Roope Ahola, filmed by Joosep Jürisson and produced by Rauno Linnamäe. Huge thanks to you guys once again! A special thanks for also to John Phillip Mäkinen for his support and attendance!
The 'Dead A.M.' video was released at Gloria, Helsinki on Oct 27th and a week later online. So far the video has spread via various online mags, channels and blogs widely around the world. Definitely another highlight of the year!!
As the year draws to a close we want to thank the very special people close to us (you know who you are!) and our livin´ lovin families and especially the women in our lives for putting up with us for another year. Also a huge thanks to our loyal Crewmembers Grn and Piski for their effort! You guys are irreplaceable! And last but not least, a big virtual hug to all of you who have showed up at the gigs this year!
We already have a kickass start planned for 2014 as we're asked to play a show with Crazy World, a finnish 'supergroup' featuring Järvinen, Kämäräinen, Kotilainen, Porra, Nykänen at Tavastia, Helsinki on Jan 5th. Tickets from here! More dates will be announced soon! One thing is for sure, 2014 promises to be an absolute killer!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!! Stay tuned and see you next year!
