What started out as a Fuel/Nirvana/APC/Tantric influenced acoustic project between Singer/Songwriter Rob Ulrich and Bassist Josh Bodeen, quickly developed into a full band operation, recruiting Guitarist Brad Prentice and Drummer Josh Blue, after they realized how well recieved their style was. Mindset Evolution has been a mainstay on the Peoria music scene for years, playing to crowds of 50-2000 fans with bands like Puddle of Mudd, Finger Eleven, Tantric, Drowning Pool, Nonpoint, Smile Empty Soul, Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Sponge and many more. They eventually garnered national attention by winning a spot on the Vans Warped Tour. At the end of 2008 they finished work with Producer Erik Nelson on thier second album, "Taking Back Today". Full of lyrical love, life, loss, and infectiously memorable melodies, this album was very well recieved and has sold 2000 copies independently. Currently, M.E. is working on the new material for the highly anticipated follow up to "Taking Back Today". And they are keenly aware of how much of this success is owed to their incredible fans the Mindset Music Mafia or M3. With the statement of devotion and support "M34L", they constantly push, promote, and support the band and never fail to prove they are the best fans, friends, and family a band could ever hope to have. M34L!
