MPB began during the summer of 2000 continuing musically where Indecision left off but as years went by, the new unit joined the intensity and rage of their NYHC mentors (Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front and the Cro–Mags) along with the dark and depressing aesthetics of bands like Sisters of Mercy and The Cure. Like Indecision, MPB created their own hype by touring enough to make Black Flag look like agoraphobics. âWe did tours before Mapquest and cell phones and most bands today can't imagine that.â Brannan states âwe would ride in a crowded van that broke down three times a day and play for whoever bothered to show up. Itâs not like we are looking for props but itâs just to show how much we appreciate everything we get, bands today expect everything to be handed to them, they feel theyâre owed it after a year or two of being a band, whereas I think we appreciate it more, weâre not owed anything, we just earn it.â Trustkill Records released the debut album Nothing In Vain in 2001 to a landslide of hardcore and critic approval.
