From Brooklyn basements and block parties to three Top Ten Dance hits on the Billboard charts, a group once pinned as New York's favorite disco era band are commemorating an anniversary; reunited, in the studio and back to their pop-rock roots, Mantus releases a new full-length album.
In 1976, singer Frank "Deac" DeCrescenzo, bassist John Kaz, drummer Billy Amendola, and guitarist Jimmy Maer hit the NYC scene as young twenty-somethings, effortlessly mimicking what would eventually become classic rock. As their songwriting progressed, the band's R&B and Motown injected sound turned heads, subsequently landing them on the top 10 in Billboard and international dance charts. Back together again, Mantus are not just starting where they left off, but returning to where it all began. Re-introducing a refined, signature blend of melodically-minded pop arrangements with a soulful edge, a nod to decades of influences and harmony that can only be built by experience and lifelong friendship, proves for a new chapter in Mantus' storybook.
While some fans may feel like Mantus is depriving them of velvet jumpsuit nostalgia, producer, and son (both literally and figuratively) Matty Amendola states, "this is a band in their purest form for the first time in 40 years." Matty's shrewd business approach and prodigious creative input are also backed up by the band's long-term relationship with engineer, Butch Jones (Grammy Winner, Madonna, Talking Heads, B52's).
