Biography

Mr. 1986 was formed in july 2001 in Lincoln, NE when Joe, Jim and Micah asked another guy named Andy if he wanted to “jam metal”. After releasing a split-cd with “Tie These Hands” on which they added piano to one song they thought it would be a good idea to add a pianist as well, so Ryan joined up. And since then the music has changed into what it is today, they call it Instrumetal, and while you can understand the meaning and see some similarities there’s really not that much metal in it.

Jim in Mr.1986 describes their music as “Instrumental rock with long builds and a variety of textures.” and that seems to sum it up well. Their influences consists of the usual post-rock/instrumental bands like GY!BE, Eits and Mogwai but also bands such as The Cancer Conspiracy and The Appleseed Cast.

They have released one live recording on tape in 2003 called “Live Cassette Tape” (bet I didn’t need to explain what was on that), one album called “The Everbimes” (released on Suckapunch Records in 2002) that is currently available for download on their homepage: www.instrumetal.com, one split-cd with Tie These Hands in 2003 called “Collective Efforts” released on Redemption Records and an internet released EP called “2004 Demos” which also is available for free on their homepage.
