NEW BAND CRUSH: MAMMOTH INDIGO

August 20, 2018

 

Mammoth  Indigo,  the  brainchild  of  lead  singer/guitarist  Cody  Bowers,  was  formed  in  2013  in  Harrisonburg,  VA  with  friends  Dan  McDonough  (guitar/keys/vocals)  and  Eric  Singer  (percussion).  The  band  played  their  first  show  in  their  hometown  in  June,  2013  and  soon  realized  that  they  needed  to  continue  pursuing  the  creative  connection  they  all  had  together.

The  band  released  their  self-titled  debut  a  few  months  later  in  August  of  2013,  with  attention  grabbing  singles  ͞Rapture͟,  ͞God-Made  Satellite͟,  and  ͞No  Mothers͟.  They  hit  the  road  hard  by  booking  their  own  shows  and  traveling  fully  across  the  US  in  support  of  the  album.  Early  2014,  they  were  supported  by  Richmond  native,  Joey  Cook  (American  Idol  finalist)  on  two  different  legs  of  tours  throughout  the  US.  The  band  continued  playing  extensively  after  that  and  ended  up  touring  with  The  Soil  and  The  Sun,  You  Blew  It!,  and  Taking  Back  Sunday.

After  watching  the  band  at  a  live  show  in  Charlotte,  NC,  the  band  finally  found  their  permanent  bass  player  in  Adam  Vaagen.  The  group  now  felt  complete  with  a  full  lineup  and  were  determined  to  make  their  passion  for  their  music  known.  Cody  had  already  begun  to  piece  together  what  would  be  their  sophomore  album  and  the  band  decided  to  take  the  next  year  to  focus  on  writing  and  recording.

In  April  of  2018,  the  band  released  ͞Wilt͟,  which  was  premiered  by  Substream  Magazine.  Showcasing  singles  such  as  ͞Flowers  In  The  Basement͟,  ͞Full  Bloom͟ and  ͞Whiskey  King͟  the  band  traveled  to  Austin,  TX  in  March  of  2018  to  play  the  Feedbands  Showcase  during  SXSW.  They  are  currently  gearing  up  for  a  full  US  tour  in  August  of  2018  as  well  as  continuing  to  hit  the  road  forever.
