Now in 2011 the Leeds based progressive metal five-piece have released their second EP, 'Row Away from the Rocks'. Produced, mixed and mastered by Justin Hill (SikTh) of WellerHill Productions at Fortress Studios in London and with stunning artwork designed by British cartoonist Ralph Steadman, most famous for his work with Hunter S. Thompson, 'Row Away from the Rocks' presents listeners with four tracks of a heavier, rockier, more soulful sound citing influences as diverse as SikTh, Incubus and Faith No More.
Fresh from an action packed summer which saw MISHKIN release their critically acclaimed E.P 'Row Away from the Rocks' , video single 'Good Day to Die' which aired on Kerrang! TV and reached no.6 in the Scuzz TV airplay charts, numerous festival appearances including Hevy Festival and finishing in the Top 10 of the Red Bull Bedroom Jam competition, the band are set to round off a busy year by taking to the road for their 'Good Tour To Die' in a string of dates throughout October and November.
