Release Text:
“We’re not preaching Straight Edge, Healthy Living, PMA or Spirituality at you. Not everyone in the band takes the same stance on everything. We embrace those differences. This is not a album with an agenda. These are simply stories and methods that we’ve found that personally work for us. Please seek to better yourself on your own personal path. This album is simply about Our passions. Make your own. We do this because it’s all we know. So many things separate us in life…. Religion, Politics, Sex, Money, Education, Race, Social Status, Social Media and Age. Let’s rise above all of it. Unity.” – 2Minute Minor

“October Bird of Death is full tilt Chicago punk rock. A sound grounded in old school punk but with modern twists and turns. The vocals are passionate and raw, grinding and soaring.

It is their lives and it is bleeding through on every track…” – ZAP Records
