the Minor Leagues perfectionism, songwriting smarts, and general ear for melody have just raised the bar 10 feet higher for everyone else.
--Alternative Press, Nov. 2004
From the depths of chilly Midwest winters, the Minor League has emerged from the snow and country music blanketing the sleepy college towns of Marquette and East Lansing, Michigan. The trio was recently featured in Alternative Press as the November Unsigned Band of the Month, and was a semi-finalist in mtv-Us Best Music on Campus Contest (in conjunction with Universal Records). They are fresh off the Kevin Says/Hot Topic stage of the 2005 Warped Tour.
Members have played with the likes of Alkaline Trio, Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, Mustard Plug, Hit the Lights, Chiodos, My Hotel Year, Silverstein, Knockout, Near Miss, the Red Hot Valentines, Spitalfield, the Matches, Smackin Isaiah/A Wilhelm Scream, JJ Nobody and the Regulars, Flatus, and countless local/regional acts.
Now located in Chicago, TML shows no sign of slowing down their momentum--fist in the air.
So, we got old, and momentum slowed down as momentum is wont to do.
