Mungion Announces Sophomore Album, ‘Ferris Wheel’s Day Off’, Release New Single

first_imgMungion is quickly rising the ranks of the jam scene. Despite being a relatively new act—the group formed in spring of 2015—the group has earned enormous buzz with their high-octane live performances and dynamic compositions. Today, as a follow up to the group’s first-ever official live release, Live Fun Vol. 1, which was released back in May, Mungion has announced that they will be releasing their sophomore studio album, Ferris Wheel’s Day Off, this fall.Due out on October 5th, Mungion’s forthcoming Ferris Wheel’s Day Off finds the quartet—comprised of Justin Reckamp (guitar/vocals), Joe Re (keyboards/vocals), Sean Carolan (bass/vocals), and Matt Kellen (drums/vocals)—joined by a rotating cast of musicians, including a full horn section. The album was produced by the band’s good friend, Ben Factor, and showcases the group’s stellar sense of humor and explosive improvisations.As Reckamp shared in a press release, “We have spent the last ~15 months grinding away in different cities, studios, and apartments are very proud of the way the whole thing turned out. … There’s a little something for everybody here – some tracks are funky, others heavy. Often times, multiple genres are represented inside one tune; that’s the essence of what we do, and the records’ diversity is something we are very proud of.”In addition to detailing the new album, Mungion has also released the first single off the album, “One Night Stan”, which was premiered yesterday via Relix and can be streamed below or on Apple Music. The group also recently announced plans for an extensive fall tour, which will see the group supporting The Motet and Aqueous. For more information, head to Mungion’s website here.

At this fair, Zadar and Zadar County will jointly represent and promote the Zadar Port Authority, ZIPO and GPH, the Zadar Tourist Board and Zadar County and Zadar Airport. The goal is to promote Zadar and Zadar County through excellent cooperation and attract even more guests to the best port on the Adriatic, and maybe soon in the world.center_img For the first time in history, the total number of passengers carried exceeded 1.000.000 in the first 6 months.

Pevec, director of Zadar International Port Operations, said: “We are very excited to be one of the three finalists of the 2019 Seatrade Port of the Year Award. This is also a recognition for our efforts and the efforts of director Škifić and his team in positioning Zadar as an important destination for cruises on the Adriatic, increasing the number of passengers in the port and developing the port and providing an even better experience for visitors to Zadar. All our efforts are focused on the well-being of cruise passengers, but also the entire local community” Photo: Pixabay.com The Seatrade Cruise Awards have been given for more than ten years to the best examples and practices within the cruise industry. Hundreds of ports apply for this selection every year, so entering the finals is a great success. There is still a growing trend in the number of vehicles at a higher rate than among passengers. In the first 6 months of 2019, 194.382 vehicles were transported, which is an increase of 7,05% “Already now, in the first year of cooperation with GPH and ZIPO, we see very good results. Entering the finals, where only two other world ports are with us, speaks volumes about our mutual success. We are convinced that in the coming years this cooperation will be better and better and that Zadar will soon take its rightful place in the cruise business. ” said the director of the Zadar Port Authority Robert Škifićlast_img read more
