MONDO DRAG RELEASE THE OCCULTATION OF LIGHT ON FEB. 26
VIA RIDINGEASY RECORDS
“WHERE THE FOREFATHERS OF HEAVY PSYCH AND PROG-METAL LEFT OFF IN THE MID ‘70s, MONDO DRAG HAS PICKED UP TODAY.” – SF WEEKLY
Nov. 23, 2015, LOS ANGELES – Mondo Drag, the newly transplated Bay Area band (originally hailing from Iowa), release The Occultation of Light on Feb. 26, 2016.
“Each of our albums has directional changes in songwriting and this third chapter is no exception,” says vocalist/keyboardist John Gamino. “Since moving to Oakland, we’ve been privy to the large amount of music that flows through a major cultural center. We’ve seen legendary acts like Magma, King Crimson, Goblin, and Yes. We are always trying to expand our sonic range and we definitely explore some new areas on the new album that we’ve not been to before.”
Produced by fellow Bay Area resident Phil Manley (Trans Am, Wooden Shjips), the album was recorded live, tracked and mixed on analog tape at El Studio in San Francisco following a tour with Electric Citizen and Slow Season.
The Occultation of Light track list:
Out of Sight
In Your Head (Parts I & II)
Ride The Sky (Bonus Track)
Mondo Drag is John Gamino (vocals/keys), Nolan Girard (guitar/synth), Jake Sheley (guitar), Andrew O’Neil (bass) and Ventura Garcia (drums).
