Dr. Mint’s new record, Voices in the Void, was released this weekend. We celebrated by playing at the Blue Whale in Los Angeles. This also marked Orenda Record’s 3rd anniversary, and Dr. Mint joined 15 other Orenda artists for a large 20 person ensemble piece. It was quite special, and we decided for once not to record it.
Just a quick bit from the DR.MiNT reunion in June.
Lots of stuff to share over the new few months, including a new record via special limited edition vinyl @Orenda Records

It’s been about 6 years since Dr. Mint has produced any new material, and I am happy to announce that we are in the studio and will be performing live @ The Blue Whale in downtown Los Angeles on June 10th.
I recently had a fun opportunity to answer a few questions for a Russian webzine called “The Most Original Drummer’s Zine,” and I decided to repost it here for anyone else interested. I don’t often get to do a Q&A about my drumming, so it was pretty cool to get the request and learn that that The Kandinsky Effect has fans in Russia! On a side note, I also think it’s super cool that most of the drummers featured in the webzine are playing super heavy metal music – and those of you that know me best, know that I love some metal music.
Here’s one of the tracks off my upcoming Stencils release titled “The Oddly Stranger”
