The Mob Announces December Shows

The following press release has been issued about New York's The Mob performing upcoming shows in December:

"Sometime during 1980 searching for a harder/faster outlet than the current NYC punk rock trend, three teenagers from Jackson Heights, Queens: Jack Flanagan, Jose Gonzalez and Ralph Gebbia formulated The Mob. Once the concept was established they added high-school bud Jamie Shanahan on drums, to round out the 4 piece assault.

"The early Mob sound was heavily influenced by what was going on in L.A. and D.C. With NY not having a true representative taking up this new sound and culture The Mob chose to carry the flag. The Mob were not alone in this endeavor and these ideas, as others were feeling the same excitement and picked up guitars, mics and sticks in pursuing these same ideas: which turned into the first wave of the NYHC scene.

"Fast forward to 2012 and The Mob is back in business. This year's Black N' Blue Bowl marked The Mob's return to the stage and to the forefront of the NYHC Scene after a ten year absence. Now The Mob is pleased to announce that they will be playing two shows this December. The first show is scheduled for December 1st in Philadelphia, PA at Gunners Run with special guests Antidote. The second show is set for December 2nd in New York, NY at The Bowery Electric and serves as the CD release show for Antidote's new album where The Mob will provide direct support. More information on the show can be found here." More...

The Mob To Release New 7" Singles

Sometime during 1980 searching for a harder/faster outlet than the current NYC punk rock trend, three teenagers from Jackson Heights, Queens: Jack Flanagan, Jose Gonzalez and Ralph Gebbia formulated The Mob. Once the concept was established they added high-school bud Jamie Shanahan on drums, to round out the 4 piece assault. The early Mob sound was heavily influenced by what was going on in L.A. and D.C.

Fast forward to 2012 and The Mob is back in business. This year's Black N' Blue Bowl marked The Mob's return to the stage and to the forefront of the NYHC scene after a ten year absence. Along with performing at the Black N' Blue Bowl this year, The Mob has recorded newest offering "Back to Queens" which will be released in true "MobStyle" as a 7" vinyl including the track "That's It." This release is limited to 1000 individually hand numbered copies which were signed by all four members of the band.

"Back To Queens" is the first in a series of four 7" singles that will be released by The Mob on Weathermaker Music. The artwork for the singles was created by New York tattoo artist Mr. Den. While each single has its own distinct artwork, once all four are released each piece takes on a new meaning as one part of a complete piece of art. There will also be a digital version of the single available which includes a bonus offering of "Zoo Crew." More...
