Mindless Self Indulgence

After a highly successful fan funded album campaign, the pop-punk outfit Mindless Self Indulgence have just released the official name of their upcoming studio album via an exclusive with Altpress. The album will simply be called How I learned To Stop Giving A Shit And Love Mindless Self Indulgence. Yup. A title that is both self-referential, and references the classic film by Stanley Kubrick, Dr. Strangelove. Honestly, the self referential aspect of MSI has always been one of my favorite things they do, and while I’m not in love with the name (there was a rumor going around that the album was going to be called God is My Son, which I loved), but it definitely fits the band’s style and attitude.

How I learned To Stop Giving A Shit And Love Mindless Self Indulgence will be released to backers sometime mid-March, and for non-backers exclusively on the band’s forthcoming tour. A full official release is expected sometime following the upcoming tour. Dates for said tour can be seen below.
