Kansas City, MO – February 24, 2013 –The alternative band, Mime Game, will be heading to Austin for South by Southwest 2014! The band released their new EP, Do Your Work, on October 1st, 2013 recorded in LA with Rick Parker (Dandy Warhols, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Jewel, Sugar Cult) and partially recorded at Scott Weiland’s (Stone Temple Pilots) studio. With inspired offerings from every band member, Do Your Work showcases insightful lyrics, strong rhythms, meaty bass lines and technical leads.

Singer, guitarist and lyricist Dillon DeVoe created Mime Game as a side project in 2007 while still fronting the alt-rock act Josephine Collective, then signed to the Warner Brothers label. What started as a solo project, personal exploration, and sort of musical “home birth” for DeVoe, Mime Game has grown to an inspired, energy-packed four-man troupe of musicians producing keep-it-real, folk-tinged, soulful alternative rock inspired by both 90s and 00s alt-rock bands and by a desire to create music with depth – on multiple levels.
In forming Mime Game, DeVoe assembled a group of musicians who like to say they are brothers from different mothers, independently and collectively committed to making music from the soul that also rocks every house they play. Home-grown in Kansas, the band spent much of 2012 in Atlanta where they picked up lead guitarist Dalton Gomez. Chris Bradley (bass) and Duncan Burnett (drums) came on board when the group returned to Kansas in 2013.
Mime Game traveled to LA in 2013 to create Do Your Work, which was chosen as Under The Gun Reviews’ #1 EP, stating it “bursts with satisfying emotion through each note.” In addition, the band has received endorsements from Dead Bolt Wine, Apple Tree Percussion and Saluda and features in Front Magazine (featured unsigned band),The DeliKC (Top 13 songs of 2013), The Pitch (2013 Music Forecast), just to name a few. Mime Game is surprised by how quickly its lineup of supporters is growing. The band is fueled by the support, of course, but more importantly by their own relentless, tenacious desire to stay true to the message inherent in the EP’s title track … Do Your Work.
A band on a mission with no time to waste, Mime Game set out in 2013 to share their inspired sound on a 38-day tour covering the eastern half of the country, in addition to performing at the 2013 Music Saves Lives Showcase at SXSW. In their first year, Mime Game fulfilled important goals, including growing a loyal fan base; rocking venues from Harlem, NYC to Hannibal, Mo.; and establishing the band as one that personifies the transformative power of music and passes that power along to its fans.
Quickly gaining the respect and attention of fellow musicians, Mime Game and has shared the stage with notable bands such as, Go Radio, Jukebox the Ghost, The Dangerous Summer, Moon Taxi, Hockey, From Indian Lakes, The Royalty, Stages and Stereos, You Me & Apollo, and Behold the Brave.
DeVoe tells us, “Mime Game isn’t playing any games or silently resting…We love making music and giving people music they can relate with, move to and remember. People at shows tell us all the time that they really feel something when they listen to our songs. That’s the kind of thing that makes it clear we wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. We may have a funny name, but we’re here to stay.”
