Mainland Divide formed in late 2008 and released the “Product of Man” EP in 2009 with Rick Holthoff on vocals, Jesse Kelly and Chris Doan on guitar, Aaron Wolfe on bass and Corey Canady on drums. After releasing the EP, the band parted ways with Corey and took time to experiment with writing.

Rick moved from vocals to guitar and Jesse moved from guitar to drums. This gave the band the flexibility to showcase the wide range of styles that they want to incorporate in their music.

Mainland Divide has an experimental, diverse sound with influences ranging from post-hardcore to jazz to shoegaze. They have just released their new self-titled album independently on cassette and CD. Keep track of them on Facebook and bandcamp.com

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes.
