How’d you like a punch in the face? Well, the music of Midnight Mob is the next best thing. This New York band combines punk, metal, blues, hard rock, and a little bit of soul into one rip-roaring package that’ll remind you of every great rock ’n’ roll act of the last 40 years—Guns N’ Roses, Danzig, Motörhead, Social Distortion, Queens of the Stone Age—without imitation.

Girls, guns or zombies? Girls and guitars!

My thoughts… Midnight Mob is my favorite unsigned rock band! I stumbled upon the band, randomly, in 2013 and was hooked instantly! “Hit or Miss” should’ve been a mainstream rock hit, and I wish “Be Mine” had a video! Oh, and Blackey Deathproof is a stunning beauty gifted with an amazing voice!
