Modern Mimes is an alternative rock 3 piece band consisting of Adi Elcida Hernandez on vocals, Ernesto Paez on guitar and bass, and Justin Perez on drums. Their creation can be best described as "future goth." A term they coined to explain their fusion of soaring guitars, powerfully haunting vocals, industrial electronics, subconscious evocative lyrics, hard hitting percussion, and catchy pop sensibilities.
Modern Mimes released their debut album "Wake Up" in early 2017. Their single "Love Hate," premiered on Blank TV and their video, directed by Carla Forte, was selected at various film festivals. They followed up their debut album with a cover of Type O Negative's "I don't Wanna Be Me." The Goth Metal Legends not only approved of the cover but quickly promoted the single and video before it's release. "I Don't Wanna Be Me,” has resulted in a successful 43k+ views on Youtube and was featured on various media outlets. Proceeding "Wakeup" was their sophomore album "The Gray" featuring their Billboard charting single "Stare," which was released in conjunction with Curtain Call Records.
The 3 piece has appeared in National Media outlets such as Loudwire, The PRP, Digital Tourbus, and many others. They have had the pleasure of playing alongside household names such as The Killers, Godsmack, Weezer, Mushroomhead, We Came as Romans, and many more. They have toured throughout the United States and performed at Riptide Music Festival, the biggest two day Alternative and Classic Hits music festival in Fort Lauderdale, WJJR's Earthday Birthday music fest, SXSW, and are scheduled to perform at RockFest WI 2021.
Mixed and mastered by Matthew Laplant (Skindred, Nonpoint, Sikth), their latest single and music video directed by Joey Durango “Portals,” was released September 2020. The title track to their third coming album,“Portals,” takes you on a journey of transformation, regeneration and affirmation.The album is set to be released in 2021.
