About I the Mighty:
Since the band’s inception in 2008, I the Mighty have come to be recognized as one of the most progressive voices in alternative rock. Over the course of the past decade, the band has built a cult-like international following largely through their explosive live show – which has seen the band touring with such notable acts as Coheed & Cambria, Say Anything and Glassjaw, slots at England’s Download Festival and Reading & Leeds festival, and a 2017 national headline run that culminated in back-to-back sold out shows in Los Angeles.
I the Mighty have released four full-lengths and an equal number of EPs to date. Their most recent effort, Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go, came out in October of 2017 on Equal Vision Records. Though the band has exhibited incredible growth with each release in the past, it represented a particularly bold step in the band’s creative journey. Musically, the album is bolstered by the intricate layerings of guitarwork from Walsh and Ian Pedigo, coupled with the fierce rhythms of Chris Hinkley on bass and Blake Dahlinger on drums. The diverse deliveries of vocals are further highlighted with exceptional framing of impressive multi-layered harmonies and dramatic yet balanced instrumentations.
The album is a collection of artistically mature rock anthems that sees Walsh tackling topics that have shaped his personal growth; both in terms of life experience and in regards to more abstract topics. “Chaos In Motion,” premiered on BBC1 Radio Rock and featured the ultimate “unsatisfying” video. It was picked up by Viral Thread and amassed 1MIL+ plays in 24 hours. “Chaos In Motion” opened the band to a new demographic of fans that seem to have joined the ranks of the band’s already large and dedicated following.
“Cave In,” I the Mighty’s latest single, continues the band’s standard of maintaining disarming honesty lyrically, coupled with expansive instrumentals that elevate the song from emotional to heartrending. It’s a fluid movement that promises a future of more growth and complexity. I the Mighty’s goal is to continuously evolve and leave their mark on the music scene by creating a unique sound and identity. They are unquestionably up to the task.
