Genghis Tron want to eat your brains.

Well, maybe they don't, but they do want to at least poke at it a little. Their new album 'Board Up The House', evokes vivid emotional responses from panic to relief, hope to despair, and just about everything in between. And the best way to manipulate moods in such a way is to manipulate sounds, which is what Genghis Tron does best.

Forming four short years ago in Poughkeepsie, New York, Genghis Tron – Mookie Singerman (vocals), Michael Sochynsky (keyboards), and Hamilton Jordan (guitars) – set out to create something left-of-center, and like their musical tastes, that couldn't be easily pinned down. With Singerman's varied vocals, Sochynsky's keyboard wizardry turning blips and beeps into pulsating rhythms, beats, and ambient backdrops, and Jordan's fret-board shredding and stream of memorable riffs, Genghis Tron created something that can only be described as new and totally unique.

Genghis Tron began their first substantial touring on the heels of their first demo and subsequent EP 'Cloak of Love' (Crucial Blast, 2005), gigging with a range of diverse bands from Dan Deacon to Daughters, Yip, Yip to Death From Above 1979, Usaisamonster to Magrudergrind, and everything in between.

The writing evolved slowly but morphed into what would become 2006's Kurt Ballou-produced 'Dead Mountain Mouth', their first full-length album. 'Dead Mountain Mouth''s darker, more dense approach was lauded by the international press (AP, Rock Sound, Decibel, and more) and stoked by the bands ever-expanding touring across the North America and the UK

In early '07, the band signed a deal with Relapse Records (after over a year of conversation between the band and label) and relocated to Philadelphia to begin working on 'Board Up The House'. The band broke from writing only for choice tour opportunities; a US Tour with Kylesa, dates with Pig Destroyer, Rob Crow, The Red Chord, and appearances at several festivals including SXSW. Genghis Tron's painstaking year of write-and-tour, write-and-tour concluded when they returned to Ballou's God City Studio in the fall to record 'Board Up The House'.
