They don’t make records like this anymore” - Pivotal Rage Webzine
The band is holding a CD Release Party on Friday, May 30 at Mad Bob's Saloon, located at 342 Lincoln Street in Manchester, NH. This is a free 21+ show beginning at 8pm. In addition to MONGREL, there will be performances by "Q", DEAD HARRISON, and LONE WOLF JAMES.
Mongrel, by definition, is a mixed-breed, and this female fronted band known as "The hardest working band in Boston" (Metal Edge) lives up to its name. Fronted by Jessica Sierra, who has drawn comparisons to great vocalists ranging from Janis to Otep, the band mixes its hard rock, punk, and metal influences to rave reviews. With Evolution, the band members' diverse styles come together better than ever. Evolution was recorded by Jim Foster (POD, Nullset, Sully Erna), mixed by Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Soil, Otep, Evanescence), and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Pantera, Metallica, Soundgarden), bringing Mongrel's songs and sound to their next evolutionary level.
Over the years, Mongrel has earned an impressive collection of endorsements and sponsorships including Marshall Amps, Peavey, Monster Cable, Seymour Duncan, Dean Markley, Artist Series Guitars, Agile Guitars, In Tune Guitar Picks, Supernatural Cymbals, Cabin Fever Maple Whiskey, and Cocaine energy drinks. Mongrel had the RockMyMonkey.com album of the year in 2010, was named "Punk Band of the Year" by Pulse Magazine in 2011 & 2014, and one of "25 Artists That Made 2013 Rock" by Rockwired Magazine. They were also number 6 on the CMJ "Most Added" list and hit 43 on the CMJ charts in 2012; in addition, their video for "C & a 1/2" was given an exclusive premiere on RevolverMag.com in 2013.
