Canadian punk rock band based in London, Ontario. Formed in 2008.
Punk-alt-pop duo, Mobina Galore, formed in late 2010 by Jenna Priestner (guitar/vocals) and Marcia Hanson (drums/vocals) and are based out of Winnipeg MB. They embarked on their first Canadian tour in 2011 with only a dozen original tunes in hand. The success of the tour lead them to Vancouver to record a self-produced 5-song EP Skeletons in 2012 that showcased more of a garage rock sound. The album charted numerous times across Canada on College Radio Stations, reaching #1 in Kingston ON and Kamloops BC. During that year Mobina Galore showcased at NXNE, reached the Top 25 in CBC Radio 3’s Tracks on Tracks contest and headed on their first headlining mini-tour of Western Canada to promote Skeletons.
2013 had some successes for Mobina Galore as well; they were finalist in Manitoba Songfest with their track “Hear Me Out” and again showcased at NXNE coinciding with another Canadian Tour from Vancouver BC to Ottawa ON. Most importantly they began production on their upcoming album Cities Away. In anticipation of their album release, Mobina Galore spent 2014 on the road, including three tours out West and a month long tour in Ontario and Quebec with showcases at Big Fun Festival (Winnipeg), Juno Fest (Winnipeg), Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Pouzza Fest (Montreal) and Golden Sound Festival (Golden BC).
Mobina Galore released their sophomore album, Cities Away, produced by John Paul Peters (Propagandhi, Royal Canoe, Comeback Kid) on December 9, 2014. The album is pure, emotional, punk rock written and played with love and an abundance of high energy. The debut single “Bad Love Song” has tackled the charts reaching #6 in high rotation on CBC Radio 3 as well as college radio across Canada.
They will be on the road for most of 2015 touring Canada as well as their first European tour in the fall.
Similar artists include The Distillers and Japandroids. Some artists Mobina Galore have opened for include PUP, Bleached, The Dudes and Shred Kelly.
