Mondo Cozmo Announces New EP

NEW YORK, NY-Summer is finally underway now that Mondo Cozmo has returned with brand new music… The critically acclaimed Philly-born and Los Angeles-based mohawked rock ‘n’ roll prophet will release his new Your Motherfucker EP on June 29 via Republic Records.

The EP follows up Mondo Cozmo’s critically acclaimed 2017 full-length debut, Plastic Soul—which housed the hits “Shine,” “Hold On To Me, and “Automatic.” It saw him perform across the country to sold out shows and even made his television debut onJimmy Kimmel Live!.

The four-track EP shows an elevated sound for Mondo Cozmo. “Tonight Tonight”(produced by John Hill (Portugal The Man), kicks off with rustling guitar that pick up into an infectious percussion. Soon, his voice takes hold, spinning a cinematic scene about “city boy blues” and “suicide queens” before the festival-ready chant, “Tonight, tonight, tonight. Elsewhere on the EP, “Your Motherfucker” sounds like the bastard child of LCD Soundsystem and Jeff Buckley, marrying glitchy dancefloor beats and evocative lyricism. That’s just the half of it though. Check out the full tracklisting below!

Your Motherfucker EP comes right in the middle of his tour with Vance Joy. The sold-out dates have run across the country and continue into mid-July- see full tour dates atwww.mondocozmo.com/tour

With this new music and a ton of touring, Mondo Cozmo is back motherfuckers…

Mondo Cozmo
A disciple of Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, and The Verve, thus the Philadelphia-born, Los Angeles-based Mohawk-ed and tattooed troubadour Mondo Cozmo was born. Think Dylan fronting Oasis with Beck making the beats. Mondo Cozmo took over the rock world with his debut album Plastic Soul, which featured his #1 song
“Shine.” He made his television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performed at (almost) EVERY single music festival last summer, toured with Bastille, opened for MUSE (to a crowd of over 10,000) and with Spoon. From the music industry to Hollywood – everyone has become a fan of Mondo Cozmo: Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons crashed his stage in Las Vegas and the two of them did a cover of “Bittersweet Symphony” together, and his music videos have starred actresses Anna Faris(“Hold On To Me”),and Paz de La Huerta“Higher”. He was named top festival performer at Governors Ball (Consequence of Sound & Billboard), Bonnaroo (Entertainment Weekly), Boston Calling (Boston Music), Shakey Knees (Atlanta Music Guide), Forecastle Festival (Courier- Journal), Austin City Limits (Consequence of Sound) and Summerfest (Milwaukee Journal- Sentinal). In response to last year’s shootings in Las Vegas he penned “The Ballad of Vegas” a moving song discussing the heartbreak of the recent violence across the country- Listen Here. In addition, he was recently selected to speak at Grammy’s on the Hill in support of the Music Modernization Act where he spoke to Congressmen and women. Be ready for more Mondo Cozmo music in 2018.

BARNS COURTNEY RELEASES ‘GREEN AND GOLD’

With the Packers season kicking off, Packers fans and Wisconsin residents are all looking forward to seeing the team take the field in the coming weeks. This year, the excitement is spreading across the pond to British musician Barns Courtney and his band. A Packers staff member heard the up-and-coming musician’s song “Glitter and Gold” and immediately knew it would catch on with Packers fans, especially if the song was re-recorded as “Green and Gold.”

With his recent album release and North American tour, including a stop at Summerfest in Milwaukee in June and at Lollapalooza in Chicago last weekend, Courtney was happy to lend his voice and music to the energy of the coming football season.

“The struggles I experienced when I lost my first record deal, and the drive to succeed in the face of adversity runs parallel to the challenges in football,” said Courtney. “You need the same fire in your belly to play professionally be it in music or in sports. If I didn’t feel a personal connection to the subject matter, I wouldn’t write about it. I try to be as honest as possible in my lyrics. So with that in mind, I tried to find as many parallels as possible with the Packers’ world and my own.”

Courtney’s debut album, “The Attractions Of Youth,” will be released Sept. 29.

Billboard has said, “Barns Courtney lit up the crowd at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles….His deep George Ezra-esque vocals with the husky Americana rhythm of Mumford & Sons, along with his attention-grabbing stage presence left no boring moments throughout the concert.” His shows are consistently recommended as picks of the week by such publications as buzzbands.la and The Dallas Observer, which noted, “His raspy vocals, genuine talent and nod to early R&B make his music a must-listen.” Listen SD observed, “Barns Courtney will make you swoon with his special brand of bluesy folk-pop. We love his song ‘Fire’ but frankly all of his songs are fire.”

The young artist has already surpassed 45 million combined streams globally – including more than 22 million streams in the U.S. “Hands,” from his debut EP, The Dull Drums, was tapped for a recent commercial while “Fire,”a Top 5 hit at Triple A radio and a Top 15 hit at Alternative, has been heard in several ads and for the FIFA 17 trailer. “Glitter & Gold” climbed to #1 on the Spotify UK Viral Chart and has been heard in promotional spots for Miller Lite and the critically acclaimed film The FounderBarns Courtneyhas opened for The Who at London’s Wembley Stadium and has also supported Ed Sheeran, Elle King, Blur, Fitz and The Tantrums, Tom Odell and The Libertines.
