Those Mockingbirds released their debut album Penny The Dreadful last week before the 4th of July. This Saturday, the band will celebrate this special occasion with a record release show.
The New Jersey indie/alternative band, which features vocalist/guitarist Adam Bird, violinist/keyboardist/vocalist Tory Anne Daines, bassist Rob Fitzgerald, guitarist Kyle Walters, and drummer Kevin Walters, will hold the record release show at the Backroom Studios. The venue is located on 350 US Route 46 East in Rockaway, New Jersey. Other bands set to perform that evening include Science, Reese Van Riper, Pour The Pirate Sherry, and This Good Robot, which features former Patent Pending vocalist Michael Ragosta. Tickets for the event are $10, and physical copies of Those Mockingbirds' new album will be sold. The place is very intimate, so be sure to get there when doors open at 8pm if you wish to spend the night with some good tunes and good vibes.
Penny The Dreadful was recorded at Portsmouth, New Hampshire's Wild Arctic Recording Studio with Dean Baltulonis, whose past works include Brand New, Ra Ra Riot, The Hold Steady, and Most Precious Blood. Those Mockingbirds have been gaining a ton of steam in the New Jersey music scene since the release of their 2010 debut EP No Symmetry, which debuted at number one on Amazon's Movers & Shakers Charts. The band gained a ton of attention when they announced the "kidnapping" of fellow New Jerseyian Gary Brolsma, better known on the internet as the Numa Numa Guy, in exchange for 50,000 song downloads of their single "Honest? Honest." The band found themselves getting featured on Fox News, Fearless Music, and was even mentioned in WCBS-FM's 20th anniversary of grunge music special. Over the years, the five piece act have shared the stage with bands like Armor For Sleep, Girl In A Coma, and The Smoking Popes.
