'Kinetic Bump' is the first single from progressive rock upstarts The Mantras' upcoming album 'Jam Bands Ruined My Life!' This album is the band's most cohesive effort to date, defining and refining the band's sound as myriad and full of depth. The band moves effortlessly between styles on danceable, aggressive, and at times, pensive tracks that take the listener through the full range of emotions the band has experienced over the last two years. 'Jam Bands Ruined My Life' is also the band's thank you to their fans for sticking by them and saving them from a life of who knows what; "one lived entirely in cubicles most likely", the band speculates.
'Jam Bands Ruined My Life' was recorded and produced at Jake Cinninger's (Umphrey's McGee) Boondock Studios, with help from Jake as a guest producer and engineer. Jake is also a featured guitarist on this single, 'Kinetic Bump', as well as other tracks on the full release, which is slated for mid-January. The Mantras will join Umphrey's McGee in Richmond, VA at The National on 1/26/13 as part of an extensive tour to promote the new album, which has The Mantras performing extensively throughout the Midwest, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast.
