Mondo Drag to release new album on Feb 26, 2016

Mondo Drag - The Occultation of LightMondo Drag, the newly transplated Bay Area band (originally hailing from Iowa), release The Occultation of Light on Feb. 26th 2016.

Vocalist/keyboardist John Gamino:

Each of our albums has directional changes in songwriting and this third chapter is no exception. 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 label mates Electric Citizen and Slow Season.

The Occultation of Light track list:

  1. Initiation
  2. Out of Sight
  3. Rising Omen
  4. Incendiary Procession
  5. The Eye
  6. In Your Head (Parts I & II)
  7. Dying Light
  8. Ride The Sky (Bonus Track)
