Black Mastiff


Black Mastiff

Edmonton’s Black Mastiff (Bob Yiannakoulias, Clay Shea, Allan Harding) is a band built around lifelong friendships and having fun, a vibe they’ve extended to both their porous, heavy, and vigorous live performance, and their recordings.

With their third full-length album Loser Delusions (Fall 2019), keeping it together became a literal priority. During the four years since their well-received Music Machine (New Damage Records, 2015), recorded and beautifully produced at Thunder Underground Studio in the desert of Palm Springs with John Garcia (Kyuss, Vista Chino), the trio had to change their perception of how a band operates. Already Renaissance men and entrepreneurs in other life ventures, when facing unforeseen challenges the band sharpened their production and business know-how by starting their own label, Grand Hand, with tour mates Chron Goblin. When drummer Allan moved to Vancouver, they decided to see how distance apart could add to, rather than take away from, their creative process and sound. The result is a determined continuation of what they do best, with a voyaging out into new sonic territory.

In additional news, Black Mastiff will be hitting the road to promote the new album for the ‘Tourgether At Last’ with label mates Calgary’s Chron Goblin. The Canadian tour will be kicking off in Lethbridge, AB on October 10th and head east towards Montreal, QC to then circle back out west to wrap up on October 25th in Edmonton, AB
