Bio :

Rock n’ roll circa 2011 is becoming an increasingly predictable affair, so, whenever a band comes along refusing to fit the mold, it usually doesn't go unnoticed. Case in point, Boston’s Mongrel – vocalist Jessica Sierra, guitarist Adam Savage, and drummer Dave Kazukiewicz. Formed with the belief that "punk" was more than a fashion requirement, Mongrel was born in 2003 in Eastern Massachusetts, quickly leaving their mark on both the local and national music scene. They have been included in "5 Bands to Watch" (Hippo Press, March 2005) and "5 Bands to Discover" (Hippo Press, November 2005). Mongrel has also been featured in Revolver magazine’s “Raw Talent” section (Nov. 2005), and was cited in Metal Edge magazine as “the hardest working band in Boston” (Jan. 2006). Feburary 2008 found Mongrel in Metal Edge once again, as well as featured on their monthly sampler cd alongside Ozzy Osbourne and Cradle of Filth. In September 2008, Mongrel was the featured "Underground Buzz" artist on Loudside.com.
Mongrel has toured extensively throughout the US, repeatedly sharing stages with metal and punk luminaries as diverse as The Misfits, FEAR, Korn, GWAR, Fu Manchu, Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses), The Exploited, Prong, Otep, Wednesday 13, Michale Graves, Blitzkid, The Independents, Trashlight Vision, Piggy D’s Evacuation Plan, Mushroomhead, Hed(pe), American Headcharge, Mower, Psychostick, All That Remains, etc.; receiving airplay on major Rock outlets including WAAF, WBCN, WFNX, WGIR, WHEB, as well as Sirius/XM and Music Choice. Along the way, Mongrel has earned an impressive collection of endorsements and sponsorships including Marshall Amps, Peavey, Monster Cable, Seymour Duncan pickups, Dean Markley strings, Agile guitars, In Tune Guitar Picks, TRX Cymbals, Cabin Fever Whiskey, and Cocaine & Brawndo energy drinks.
Mongrel's first full length album "Fear, Lies, & Propaganda" was re-released by Screaming Ferret Wreckords/ Locomotive Records / Ryko Distribution on April 8th, 2008. The album featured such standout tracks as “Bound to Crash,” “Dyslexic Alchemist (Fucked it all away),” “No Gods, No Masters,” and especially “West Memphis Hell,” the latter of which focuses on the highly controversial West Memphis 3 case. Following up the critically acclaimed "Fear, Lies, & Propaganda" cd, Mongrel released a 5 song EP entitled "Revenge" in October 2009, with their new full length CD "This Means War" due out in early 2010. "Revenge" was recorded by Tim Koukos (Nuclear Assault, Meliah Rage) at SFW studios in Manchester, NH and was mixed by Jeff Wallace (Biohazard, Pro-Pain, End of an Era) at Entrolab Studio in Toms River, NJ and garnered great reviews from fans and critics alike as well as airplay on Sirius/XM and Music Choice.
After some evolutionary lineup changes in the first half of 2010, Mongrel hit the studio with their new singer (Jessica Sierra) and new drummer (Dave Kazukiewicz) and recorded the 6 song "The New Breed of Old School" ep with Jim Foster (POD, Nullset, Graveyard BBQ) at the helm. The EP featured 6 songs from the "Fear, Lies, and Propaganda" album as a way to reintroduce the band to the fans by letting the new lineup show its merits on songs the fans knew. Mongrel entered the studio again with Jim Foster at the beginning of October 2010 to begin recording their next full length album due out in early 2011.
Balancing old school punk intensity, and metal aggression, with hard rock hooks and riffs, Mongrel is a hungry, young rock band ready to take on the world. The recordings are only part of the equation though, as Mongrel live is an equally unforgettable experience. It's high energy, intense, fun, and interactive. Fans can expect a band that is always willing to hang out and chat. "We are all music fans too, and are always eager to talk to the bands that we love, so it is very important for us to interact with anyone who wants to at our shows or online.”
