Mind Over Matter was a Hardcore Punk band from Lindenhurst, Long Island, New York.


Seven years before the mainstream media was hailing screamo as the next big thing, Mind Over Matter were accidentally inventing the genre in front of floored hometown crowds. Unfortunately, the band never drew the same sort of enthusiasm outside of Long Island until after they’d broken up (and vocalist Arty Shepherd had moved on to Errortype:11, Instruction, and currently God Fires Man); but it didn’t matter. Those kids from Glassjaw and Thursday who were in the crowd at Mind Over Matter’s gigs had already seen the future.
