Frank Turner & Mineral's Chris Simpson (10 months ago)
Frank Turner announced on Twitter today that he will in fact be flying in to NYC to be the secret guest opening for Mineral at Saint Vitus, as part of a trip where he'll also see Mineral three times. That's one way to guarantee yourself a ticket!
Also today: Mineral premiered "Parking Lot (Alternate Version)" over at Stereogum...
This alternate recording, captured during the album's 1995 studio sessions, can be found on the band's upcoming double CD compilation Mineral - 1994-1998. This double CD features remastered editions of both The Power Of Failing and 1998's EndSerenading, as well as previously unreleased songs and bonus tracks. Each remastered album will also be re-released on double DMM 180 gram vinyl, and both the LPs and Mineral - 1994-1998 will arrive in stores on October 21, 2014 via Arena Rock Recording Co.
Listen to that alternate version below.
Speaking of "Parking Lot" and not-secrets, The Parking Lot was Mineral's secret band name in Austin last week.
