The Moshville Times - “If there’s a band from Oxforshire demonstrating the insanity and chaos of Airborne then it’s Twisted State of Mind. High-energy metal/hard rock, played with the enthusiasm you’d expect of youth – and an ability to communicate with an audience while belting out some very well written tunes. This is a band to watch out for”.
TSOM recorded a single "Letting Go" with Toil Records of Philadelphia in 2014 whilst on their second US tour. They have also been lucky enough to play alongside and sometimes with some big names - videos here with Duff McKagan (Guns'n'Roses), Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns'n'Roses, and legendary guitarist), and even Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet for a version of his hit "Gold".
