The band will be appearing on the mainstage, alongside The Misfits, Shadows Fall, God Forbid and Vision Of Disorder. Mongrel guitarist and main man Adam Savage said, “We last played at Rock & Shock in 2006 and that was an amazing experience opening for GWAR, I can only imagine how much better this one is going to be with not only the Misfits, but hometown boys Shadows Fall, plus God Forbid and V.O.D.! This is going to be incredible! It’s made even cooler by the fact that our newly appointed full-time drummer Mike Hogan (who made his debut appearance at the band’s recent show with OTEP, Butcher Babies, and One-Eyed Doll) will get to share the stage with one of his idols (Jason Bitner of Shadows Fall) so soon after joining the band. We’re also going to be hanging out the rest of the weekend at our booth at the convention center, so we’ll get to hang out with fans and friends, plus see and meet people like Danny Trejo, Dee Snider, Peter Criss, Bill Moseley, Sig Haig, and Brain O’Hallaran (aka. Dante from Clerks)!! Following up the release party shows for our new album Reclamation with being a part of this year’s Rock & Shock couldn’t have worked out better. We’re psyched!!”
