Formed in 2013 by Matt Couto (ex-Elder), Darryl Shepard (ex-Black Pyramid, ex-The Scimitar) and Tom Corino (ex-Rozamov) – after the trio spent time jamming together in-between day-to-day commitments – the band quickly cemented their formation with the addition of Roadsaw vocalist Craig Riggs.

From Ripple Music:
Boston-based stoner rock supergroup Kind (with current and former Elder, The Scimitar and Roadsaw members) return with their sophomore album »Mental Nudge« this September 11th on Ripple Music, and share first single »Bad Friend«.
Featuring Matt Couto (ex-Elder), Tom Corino (ex-Rozamov), Craig Riggs (Roadsaw) and Darryl Shepard (ex-The Scimitar, ex-Black Pyramid), Boston heavy rock/stoner foursome Kind return with their second full-length, ready to unleash the follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 Ripple Music debut »Rocket Science«. Staying true to their sound but expanding their sonic palette, Kind has crafted seven new songs that cover the aural spectrum, from the indie-rock influenced »Helms« to the full-on doom of »Trigger Happy« to the rock bombast of »Broken Tweaker«, all capturing the effortless interplay between the instruments and Craig Riggs’ powerful vocals. The result is a wall of sound that shows the talent and experience these musicians continue to bring to the form.
»Mental Nudge« was recorded at Mad Oak Studios by Alec Rodriguez (Lesser Glow, Forn, Chelsea Wolfe live sound) and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Artwork was designed by Alexander von Wieding (Monster Magnet, Karma To Burn, Brant Bjork).
