NEW ALBUM RELEASE:
The Mantras are proud to announce the release of their new album "How Many?"... This Sophomore effort from the Greensboro N.C. Quintet spans the Gauntlet of catchy blues rockers to mind bending instrumentals... Definitely worth a listen... The Mantras plan to tour in support of "How Many?" in 2008!
2006 saw a lot of firsts for The Mantras. to name a few: We recorded our first album (self titled); Started seeing our first group of usuals in the crowd; Our first Halloween show was a roaring success; and NYE was a sold out affair leaving us feeling very optimistic about the coming year.
2007 has been just as momentous as ever... Opening for Rusted Root, Barefoot Manner, Dub-Conscious and The Bridge was just the tip of the iceburg! We played to a sold out crowd at Ziggy's opening for Perpetual Groove and Yo Mamas Big Fat Booty Band Booty Band... Recorded and Released a New Album, "How Many?"... organized and headlined our own outdoor music festival THE MANTRA BASH! (Which was a roaring success and looks to be an annual affair!!)... Sold out several performances at our home town venue "The Blind Tiger", including our annual Halloween and New Years Eve Shows... and started making tracks in the surrounding states! 2008 looks to be as promising as ever!!
