DAMSEL IN DEFENSE // EP

Dropping on August 23rd, Damsel in Defense is the groups debut EP, third official release over the last four years. Crafted, finalized and recorded throughout 2018 the developed energy is bursting through on this record. The growth is audible, from the writing to the sound to the technicality. Containing six tracks, all a different caliber of intensity, mandala's raw passion elevates even further on this release. 

Vocals by Morgan Fasanelli and Abe Azab

Guitar by Chris Desiderio & Abe Azab & Pat Mulholland

Bass by Matt Rosano

Drums by Sean Connelly

Recorded at Silver Bullet Studios

Mixed and Mastered by Alex Fumo

CASH FOR SMILES // LP

Written and recorded in the summer of 2016, the group was hyper focused on capturing the essence of longing and nostalgia. Containing some of their top hits such as "I'm Not Mad Bcuz U Left" and "Don't Pretend" this album is full of electrifying raw emotion. Recorded in true DIY fashion in their producer's living room, mandala sprouted a love for independence. 

Vocals by Morgan Fasanelli and Abe Azab

Guitar by Abe Azab and Patrick Sampson

Bass by Ange Collela

Drums by Dan Rivera

Recorded by Dan Heetmann at Red Door Recordings

Cash For Smiles, released in November of 2017, was Mandala's body and soul. Recorded in their former guitarist Chris Desiderio's bedroom, the album is full of passion and love. Between the melodic vocals, tight bass and drum, and harmonious guitar solos the group caught the attention of Uproxx, Nerdist & several other blogs. Riding the buzz of the album the group toured 100 shows within the year of their release, while also balancing work and school full time. Containing their hit songs "Heavy Sleeper" and "Motel Lobby" the album is truly the core of mandala's writing.
