In the shadows of Washington DC and its criminal regime, Mindless Faith returns with Medication for the Misinformed - a lethal dose of dark electronics and industrial anthems, laced with heavy beats and charged vocals. After years of war and campaigns of misinformation, it is still politics as usual in the "land of the free". The media is still for sale and the citizen-consumers are still prey to the trappings of pop culture...an opiate of the masses who don't even realize they're addicts. But the images on the screen are only a placebo, if not a poison.
Against this mindless status quo, Medication for the Misinformed is a musical shot in the arm and a socially-provocative slap in the face. Shadowland.no says the sound is "all power, fury, and drive," even when elements of world music, ambient, and trance are fused into the industrial-strength mix of noise, distorted synths, and abrasive guitars. To the extent that such diversity crossed into schizophrenia on previous releases, Mindless Faith have worked these different elements into a cohesive framework and trademark sound on Medication for the Misinformed. Reviews are starting to come in, especially in the German magazines where Medication for the Misinformed has been called "a varied and thrilling piece of work which you should listen through from beginning to end" (Zillo) and "a perfect mix of power and atmospheric tightness and the most impressive Electro-Industrial import in years.” (Negatief)
Mindless Faith's third full length CD, Momentum, was released in 2004 to North America on Metropolis Records and in Europe on Dependent Records, where it debuted at #7 on the DAC – German Alternative Charts. Mindless Faith also released two prior albums, The Silence and Manifest Destiny, both on their own label AlterCulture Records. Their music has also been featured on over 20 compilations, MTV's reality shows "Road Rules" and "The Real World", and on the X-box 360 video game, "Project Gotham Racing 3".
Mindless Faith toured the United States in 2006 with Pig, in addition to performances throughout the years with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Bella Morte, Hanzel und Gretyl, Asche, and many, many others. And thanks to their blistering remix of the Nine Inch Nails track "Only", Mindless Faith won remix contests in four cities and was invited backstage to meet Trent Reznor and crew during the NIN tour in November 2005.
In North America, Medication for the Misinformed can be ordered directly through Mindless Faith at their own AlterCulture Records online store (www.alterculture.com). The CD will also be carried by other retailers and distributed primarily by Metropolis Records. Outside of North America, Medication for the Misinformed is being released by Dependent Records (www.dependent.de).

multi-faceted compositions that will get many an electro fan's blood
pumping." - Orkus Magazine
"Beautiful, forbiddingly menacing and nasty. Catchy and cross-grained.
This release finds the US trio playing with the full range of musical
expression. A candid style and an acute sense for how to craft a song
from a conglomeration of sound makes 'Medication For The Misinformed'
an outstanding album. 9/10" - Gothic Magazine
"... hard, icey, and deeply cynical lyrics, packaged in cutting edge,
invidious industrial. 'Medication For The Misinformed' is an excellent
work, hard, intelligent, and enthralling in typical American
Industrial style, and one which is sure to win the hearts of the
fans." - whiskey-soda.de
"...here is a band clearly on their way to the top. If this album

nigh." - uselinks.de
