Early Mindwalk Blvd
Mindwalk Blvd was originally formed at the ages of 10 - 14 with Mike Avakian, Tyler Hudson and Jordan Ferreira. Writing and performing for over 5 years because of their mutual love for progressive rock from influences such as Rush, Dream Theater, Kansas, Pink Floyd, Kings X, Queen, UK and Yes as well as modern influences such as Tool, Muse, Porcupine Tree, Avenged Sevenfold etc. This writing resulted in the multi award winning CD "Paint the Seconds" and the "Art Crime" CD. They were later voted " Best Unsigned Band in Boston" in 2009 through on-line votes at Pick the Band which earned them a recording with Hollywood producer Mudrock (Andrew Murdock - Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack) and signed to the Pick the Band label at the ages of 14 and 17.
The press had called them a "Modern Day Kansas", "The Next Generation's Rush" or "Hanson on Steriods" to name a few.
