North American festivals in recent history. They twice performed
at the Voodoo Music Experience with the likes of
Iggy Pop, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and Queens

alongside Radiohead, The Cure, Kraftwerk,
and The Pixies. The following year, the band performed
at the US Download Festival, alongside The
Killers, Arcade Fire & HIM.
After the release
of several CDs and singles, as well as such opportune opening slots
and festival performances, MSI's headlining shows
throughout North America have become some of the hottest tickets
in town, wherein the band frequently will play to a sold-out venue.
In 2005, MSI
released "You'll Rebel to Anything",
and shipped over 130,000 copies. The band hit the road for the album

In early 2006, the band garnered more attention with the chart-topping
single, "Straight to Video: The Remixes".
The single debuted at #3 on the Billboard

"Shut Me Up: The Remixes +3" –
featuring remixes by Ronan Harris (VNV Nation), Ulrich Wild
(Deftones, Rob Zombie, Static X), and Tommie Sunshine
– debuted at #1 on the Billboard
Hot Dance Singles Sales charts, and has regained that ranking
multiple times into 2007!

through Hot Topic stores within North America) entitled "Another
Mindless Rip Off". Featuring five new demos alongside
five remixes "What Do They Know?", the
third single from YRTA, the EP sold out in a matter of weeks.

summer of 2007 – headlining the Revolution stage of Linkin
Park's Projekt Revolution – the band released their
first ever DVD, "Our Pain, Your Gain"
which captures their three night stand at NYC's Webster Hall, and
began working hard to play to many adoring fans outside of this
country. Not only did they recently complete a sold-out headlining
tour throughout the UK, they were direct support for My
Chemical Romance throughout Europe in November 2007. In
February of 2008, they will be touring throughout Australia, New
Zealand & Japan.

(late April 2008, worldwide), before heading out once again to take
their music to the masses, most notably as co-headliner of the massive
rock n' roll extravaganza Bamboozle on May 3rd/4th, 2008 in New
