From Boston, MA Ripple Music

Kind from Boston, MA

Featuring members Matt Couto (ex-Elder), Tom Corino (ex-Rozamov), Craig Riggs (Roadsaw) and Darryl Shepard (ex-Black Pyramid), KIND formed in 2013 and released their debut album “Rocket Science” on Ripple Music in the waning days of 2015. That album garnered favorable reviews across the board, including from Metal Hammer who stated that it built up “an atmosphere that’ll sound awesome played live”. That was proven by a West Coast tour KIND undertook with Ripple labelmates Salem’s Bend and a live appearance at Desertfest London in 2018, as well as many shows throughout the Northeastern U.S. KIND released their sophomore album “Mental Nudge” in the fall of 2020 through Ripple Music (USA) and Kozmik Artifactz (Europe). Recorded at Mad Oak Studios, “Mental Nudge” stays true to their sound while expanding their sonic palette, offering seven songs that cover a broad aural spectrum from the indie-rock influenced “Helms”, the full-on doom of “Trigger Happy” to the rock bombast of “Broken Tweaker. The result is a wall of sound that shows the talent and experience these musicians continue to bring to the form. KIND is now ready to return with their third full-length “Close Encounters”, to be issued in August 2023 on Ripple Music.
