The Two-Minute Miracles are a Canadian indie rock band from London, Ontario, fronted by songwriter and singer-guitarist Andy Magoffin.[1][2] The band had a history of fluid membership.


The band's name was taken from their early preference for keeping their songs approximately two minutes long,[3] although some songs on their later recordings have exceeded that length. Exclaim! magazine has described the band's songs as "catchy, richly melodic pop tunes occasionally run through with a sinuous, alt-country flavour and an underlying element of playful eccentricity."[4]

The band released three albums on Teenage USA; the third, The Silence of hte Animals, was released in 2003.[5] The band later signed with Weewerk. Weewerk released Volume 3.5: Rats, a digital-only preview of the full-length, in July 2007 and Volume IV: The Lions of Love which was released in October 2007.[6] At that time the band consisted of Magoffin, guitarist Justin Nace, keyboardist Michael Christoff, bassist Greg Smith and drummer Aaron Curtis.[7]
