From deep in the cosmos of Iowa comes a force known as Mondo Drag! With a wall of sound all their own, an arsenal of guitars, and a head full of clouds, they are on a rock n roll mission all their own. With songs of life, death, love, revenge, and the unknown, they are flying head first into the future with an anchor of reference for the past. Channeling artists like Pink Floyd, Pentagram, Blue Cheer, even Hendrix just to skip decades for hints of Sonic Youth, Dead Meadow, and Comets on Fire.
The band released their debut album 'New Rituals' on Alive Records in early 2010 and have been touring heavily since. This year has seen Mondo Drag touring from coast to coast supporting acts like: Sleepy Sun, Black Mountain, The Black Keys, Wooden Shjips, The Growlers, High On Fire, Pentagram, Radio Moscow, Sweet Apple, and many others.
Wax Children originally began in Covina, CA in April of 2012. Formally known as Django's Tiger, the core collaboration work of Mr. Wall (vox/guitar) and Cal Jones (lead guitar) alluded in the creation of their first EP titled "Dreamsick." "Dreamsick" was the initial fusion between the chaos of psychedelia and shoegaze paired with a heavy dosage of reverbed melodies that hailed to be both chaotic and catchy. After a few lineup changes, including the addition of Fieldhouse on drums and Loodah on bass, the band went on hiatus and decided to change their name to currently known, Wax Children. Along with the name change, the music also took a notable turn with the straying away from the likes of surf garage rock to a more pronounced, spacious chaotic sound which resulted in the making of their "Safe Hands" EP (released on Lolipop Records, January 2013). Emphasizing their roots in psychedelia while blending elements of indie, Wax Children is currently working on their latest EP titled "Angst" which will be released in late 2013.
