The Mob To Release 7" Singles, Streaming "Back To Queens"

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."

Stereo Killer is now hosting an exclusive premiere of "Back to Queens" at this location. Be one of the first to hear it before it is released.

The Mob recently completed work on a video for "Back To Queens." The video was directed by Drew Stone, who is known for his work documenting the Boston Hardcore Scene, particularly in his film "xxx All Ages xxx." Look for the video to be released in the coming weeks.
