Although YOURS FOR MINE technically did not form until 2006, the five members of this Harrisonburg, Virginia band have been creating music together in various groups for much longer. This long-time familiarity with one another has helped to foster their tight-knit and focused approach to music that has most recently culminated in their debut full-length, Dear Children.
Often referring to themselves as “weekend warriors,” YOURS FOR MINE have not let their hectic lives outside the band dissuade them from letting audiences hear their music across the country. Through numerous short tour stints, the band has ventured from New England to Texas and almost everywhere in between. This effective approach to touring has yielded wonderful results, both with a continually growing fan-base and a stability few bands achieve.
For the recording of their debut Dear Children, the band worked with Caleb Keiter, a friend of the band who just happens to be an incredible engineer as well. Having worked with the likes of Death Cab For Cutie, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Billy Ray Cyrus (to name a few), Keiter’s resume speaks to his exceptional skills behind the boards and Dear Children serves as proof. Maintaining this level of quality, YOURS FOR MINE enlisted Kim Rosen (Radio 4, Franz Ferdinand, Dashboard Confessional, Jeremy Enigk) of West West Side Music to handle mastering the album. The final result encapsulates the energy and creative foresight YOURS FOR MINE has sought in their music since their inception.
With a spectacular album ready to be unleashed on the public, YOURS FOR MINE are sure to excite fans of aggressive, yet artful music everywhere.
