Mongrel / Bio

With a singer who draws comparisons such as “a modern day
Janis meets Otep” and a unique blend of aggressive rock
influences MONGREL has been on a roll since their change to a
female singer 3 years ago. Called “the hardest working band in
Boston” (Metal Edge), MONGREL has released 2 EPs and a full
length album since 2010 and is gearing up to release their next EP “Evolution” in early

2014. “Evolution” was recorded by Jim Foster
(POD, Nullset), mixed by Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Otep, Mudvayne,
Evanescence, Soil) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Metallica,
Pantera, Nirvana, The Cult). The lead off track and first single from
the EP entitled “Snakes” is set to be released in October 2013 at
the 10th annual Rock & Shock Festival in Worcester, MA where
Mongrel will share the stage with Danzig, Doyle, Otep, Butcher
Babies, and many more.

Mongrel has toured extensively in the US, repeatedly sharing
stages with rock, metal, and punk luminaries as diverse as
Godsmack, Halestorm, Korn, Gwar, The Misfits, FEAR, Sepultura,
Otep, Fu Manchu, Mindless Self Indulgence, Dizzy Reed
(Guns N' Roses), Vision of Disorder, Prong, God Forbid, Trashlight
Vision, Piggy D’s Evacuation Plan (Rob Zombie bassist), Warrior
Soul, Hed(pe), All That Remains, Mushroomhead, American Head
Charge, Shadows Fall, etc.

Along the way, 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, TRX Cymbals, Cabin
Fever Whiskey, and Cocaine energy drinks. Mongrel had the
RockMyMonkey album of the year in 2010, was named “punk band
of the year” by Pulse Magazine in 2011, was number 6 on the CMJ
‘Most Added” and hit 43 on the CMJ charts in 2012. The video for
