7 Songs, 30 Minutes


About 7 Minutes In Heaven

A melodic pop-punk combo with an uplifting vibe and staunchly Midwestern work ethic, Chicago's 7 Minutes in Heaven (7MIH) were formed in 2012 by Washington native Timmy Rasmussen, originally as a vehicle for his solo work. Rasmussen released the seven-song Get in the Van in 2013 before turning his solo project into a more democratic effort with the addition of co-vocalist/bassist Alex Rogers and guitarist Justin Mondzak. Setting the table with their 2014 EP, The Statement, 7MIH returned a year later with a follow-up EP, Side Effects, which proved to be a breakout release, reaching number one on Billboard's Alternative New Artists chart. In early 2017, the band inked its first label deal with Italian indie Rude Records, simultaneously adding a new member into the fold with drummer Brennan Gilbert. The newly minted quartet issued Symmetry, their first EP for the label, in late 2017. ~ Timothy Monger
