MONGREL TO PLAY ROCK & SHOCK EVENT + ADDS NEW DRUMMER, MIKE HOGAN

| 13 September 2012 | Reply

(7 Sept, 2012 – Worcester, MA)  Boston’s leading punk metal crossover act
Mongrel have been invited to play the prestigious 9th annual Rock &
Shock Convention on October 12 at The Palladium in Worcester, MA.  The
band will be appearing on the mainstage, alongside The Misfits, Shadows
Fall, God Forbid and Vision Of Disorder. Mongrel guitarist and mainman
Adam Savage said, “We last played at Rock & Shock in 2006 and that
was an amazing experience opening for GWAR, I can only imagine how much
better this one is going to be with not only the Misfits, but hometown
boys Shadows Fall, plus God Forbid and V.O.D.! This is going to be
incredible! It’s made even cooler by the fact that our newly appointed
full-time drummer Mike Hogan (who made his debut appearance at the
band’s recent show with OTEP, Butcher Babies, and One-Eyed Doll) will
get to share the stage with one of his idols (Jason Bitner of Shadows
Fall) so soon after joining the band. We’re also going to be hanging out
the rest of the weekend at our booth at the convention center, so we’ll
get to hang out with fans and friends, plus see and meet people like
Danny Trejo, Dee Snider, Peter Criss, Bill Moseley, Sig Haig, and Brain
O’Hallaran (aka. Dante from Clerks)!! Following up the release party
shows for our new album Reclamation with being a part of this year’s
Rock & Shock couldn’t have worked out better. We’re psyched!!”
