Another band? Yes, another band. Another attempt at setting things right with the world, another attempt at waking people up, another attempt at making the kind of music that needs to be made, another group of wandering poets crying out in the wilderness.

Album Notes
Injecting more dynamics and emotionally-reflective songwriting into their music than most of their guitar band peers in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Mines describe their music as “epic indie pop rock,” doing justice to each descriptor. The band formed in 2004 as a four-piece, before the line-up settled as a trio – Todd Hoek (drums), Greg Lockwood (guitar, vocals) and Ethan Nickerson (bass, vocals) – to record their 2006 debut, Metropolis.

Filled with novel-like confessions and character portraits, the self-produced album gave hints to fans of the diverse directions still to come.

Adding guitarist/keyboardist Troy Hatfield in ’06 helped the band realize wider musical soundscapes in a live setting, paving the way for the subsequent 2008 release, People Music.

The Ep's lead single, "Valley", has gained the GR quartet local praise, thanks in part to the music video which accompanies the energetic and melodic show opener.
