"The Most Hated Band In The World"
Mushroomhead have been performing incognito since 1993, when drummer Skinny founded the band. The band was meant to be a side-project so they wore masks to go unrecognized, but after only a few shows they developed a rabid and loyal fan base in Cleveland. Mushroomhead released their 1995 self-titled debut album independently and it went on to became an underground hit. This was history in the making because the band really had no proper distribution. Superbuick followed in 1996 and M3 in 1999, all released via an underground street effort.
After the band felt its image and hyper-melodic, heavy style of music was being diluted by other bands jumping into this space, the band started to change their look to reflect nothing out there. After a brief stint on Eclipse Records, a move to Universal Records saw the release of XX (a combination of the past independent releases) in 2001 and XIII in 2003. The band’s last album sold over 200,000 units in the USA alone. Mushroomhead released Savior Sorrow for the pioneering rock label, Megaforce Records (Metallica, Anthrax, Ministry, Warren Haynes, Bad Brains) in 2006. Mushroomhead released “Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children” in the Fall of 2010 and it debuted at #44 on Billboard charts.
It can be said that Mushroomhead’s musical ascendance was a singular, original, aesthetic of eight guys decked out in matching jumpsuits and artsy masks, playing unbelievable, unsettling music. No other band was wearing masks and jumpsuits and purveying this type of ultra-melodic, ultra-dynamic music at the time – Mushroomhead sounded like nothing else. The band’s merging of metal, atmospheric elements, rock, and theatrics mixed with a punk DIY attitude has inspired and spawned other bands. Even though Mushroomhead’s music is rock-leaning in thought, the group remains firmly committed to pushing the envelope and trying new things.
Influences range from the driving rhythms and breakneck turns of Pantera, to the dark melodies of Faith No More, to the atmospheric stylings of Pink Floyd, but all done in Mushroomhead style.
A man of many hats, Mac is also a published author with his book "Texts from Bennett" - which is based on text messages exchanged between himself and his cousin Bennett.
All of this, coming together with a busy touring schedule, don't miss your chance to see Mac Lethal live next time he's in your part of the country, or world.
After recruiting Tommy Sciro (guitar), Michael Pak(drums), Mike Grippo (bass), and Nephew(Guitar) the band began to fine-tune their songs for live performances. Soon, this Long Island based five-piece had a sizable buzz growing online, with followers and fans accumulating on various social networks. Quickly attracting listeners on a daily basis, Kissing Candice was already proving that their brand is being eagerly welcomed to the scene. Shortly after the solidification of a lineup, Kissing Candice were invited to open up both days of Slipknot’s two day festival “Knotfest”. Wasting no time, the band began touring the United States in support of their debut EP while continuously writing new material to bring to their growing fan base. The band quickly began to be recognized for their theatrical presentation of their music at live shows which includes fog, lights, and gallons of blood!
Fresh off a full Summer 2013 United States tour supporting Snow White's Poison Bite (Victory Records) and Farewell, My Love (Standby Records) the band entered the studio to record their follow up to last years "Murder". The new EP, titled "Conjured" was produced by Jeremy Comitas and was self released by the band on December 1st through all major online retailers. "Conjured" shows off the diversity of the band while still managing to maintain a sound and image that their fans can recognize. Since the release of “Conjured” Kissing Candice has since brought their music to new markets by providing direct support to Bam Margera (Fuckface Unstoppable) on select dates of his 2013 United States tour.
Kissing Candice continued their slaughter all throughout 2014 by touring and playing shows with bands such as Combichrist, Dance Gavin Dance, Capture The Crown, and many more. Towards the end of 2014, Victory Records announced they had signed Kissing Candice. The band closed out the year with the release of their new single and music video “Ghosted”.
Kissing Candice released their debut Victory Records full length entitled “Blind Until We Burn” on June 29, 2015. In support of the album, Kissing Candice toured away Summer 2015 beginning with a full US run with legendary hip-hop duo Twiztid. Immediately after, the band did another full run around the USA on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
Throughout 2015 and 2016, the band continued to tour in support of their debut full length album, touring with national acts such as Aiden, It Lies Within, and Scare Don't Fear. In Summer 2016, the band went back into the studio to record the new single "Taken" with Zach Jones (My Enemies & I). With this single, the band debuted a ferocious new sound which their legions of dedicated listeners instantly latched onto.
Following the release of Taken, Kissing Candice was invited to perform on the Main Stage at The Gathering of The Juggalos 17. The band made an impact on theatrical rap duo Insane Clown Posse and have since been invited back to play the main stage of both their Hallowicked (October 2016) and Canadian Juggalo Weekend (February 2017) Festivals.
Kissing Candice is currently working on the release of new material and continued non-stop touring. The band has no intentions on slowing down and will continue to pummel their unique blend of horror and metal down everyone's throats until the world has experienced them.
If Link Wray was paying tribute to the golden beaches of southern California, these guys are paddling out in the muddy toxic soup of southern New Jersey...
