Mob 40’s Return with Help from BWM Comics

by | Apr 24, 2024

Arizona's greatest Hardcore band, Mob 40’s, are back (at least in audio form) with their anticipated self-titled album produced exclusively by Roger Merit of Agnostic Front, and released through May Cause Dizziness Records with a little help from BWM Comics.

Back in the olden days when Queen Kiki and I used to be cool kids hanging out at the local punk and goth shows spread throughout Metro-Phoenix’s vibrant nightlife on any given evening – while the times of good were busy being had, the friendships forged between every glass clink, every cymbal crash, every extended hangover – continue to be everlasting to this very day. Throughout our ol’ AZPunk years and beyond, the unique friendships we’ve cultivated have often led to some pretty cool creative collaborative projects, and Blackwater Market Comics & Coffee couldn’t be more honored to help create a much-anticipated record over 20 years in the making.

Graphic design by yours truly. ☕️

With the return of Mob 40’s (at least in audio form), along with benefiting the ears, hearts and turntables of Hardcore music lovers from all over the spectrum, Luke 40 and Nate from May Cause Dizziness Records decided to donate all proceeds from album’s sales to The American Cancer Society who has done so much to help their families, as well as so many families across the country. These tracks include old previously unreleased demos, and was originally recorded in Jersey City back In 1999. To finally have these tracks released into the wild after so long is a real time trip back to an extremely fun and influential time. Great music. Great dudes. Great cause. ‘Nuff said.
Arizona’s Kings of Hardcore – Mob 40’s – are one of the most hard hitting, greatest historic punk rock bands to ever come from the deserts of the Southwest. Godfathers of Phoenix’s new millenia hardcore punk scene from the late 90’s all throughout the bulk of 00’s, Mob 40’s tore the music scene up and down the great desert State. When my old band (West End Crooks) just got started playing the local rounds in the late 90s, Mob 40’s were always so cool to show us the ropes and let us little punk kids tag along to open for some of their gigs at the ol’ Bostons in Tempe & Double Zero in Tucson. Some of the best times playing music in my life has been spent opening for these guys. To get to be a part of creating this album is a genuine honor for me and BWM Comics. Local music boils through my veins, and has for most of my adult life. To have the opportunity to help create this album after moving away from my beautiful sun-drenched Hellhole is truly an honor, and I want to thank my buddies Luke 40 and Nate MCD for asking me to be a part of this project.
