PRLog - Dec. 16, 2012 - Rock N Roll Industries Magazine has just announced that Boston's own Cougar Bait will appear in their January NAMM edition following a big win in an online, fan-driven contest. The contest drew 25 bands from as far away as Brazil and Finland, as well as a host of established LA and Bay Area bands, but in the end the band out of Boston had the votes, out dueling Bravo Delta of LA by just 13 votes when voting closed on Sunday December 9th. Rock N Roll Industries is a national music publication, which is distributed nationwide at select Barnes and Noble and all Guitar Center locations. Additinally, the all important January issue will be available to all of the 95,000 music industry professionals attending NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) in Anaheim this January. The feature comes just in time for Cougar Bait's second single "Oh Oh Oh" off of their forthcoming album,  which will be available through iTunes. The win also comes on the heals of the band's endorsement deal with Thai guitar company Snagle Guitars, announced earlier this summer.

History

Since its birth in 2009, the Boston based Rocktronica band Cougar Bait has been making its mark on the New England scene. Dubbed "Massachusetts's most notorious new band" by Pulse Magazine, Cougar Bait has built a reputation on their high energy live performances. In 2012, Cougar Bait led all other artists by being nominated for five Worcester Music Awards, including Best CD and Best Up and Coming Artist. In June, the band captured the 2012 Worcester “More than Just a Battle” of the bands at Tammany Hall. Their latest single “Lovecraft” debuted at #1 on Indie Rock Radio NEGB1, has received airplay on WAAF and WBCN, and their video was chosen by the Boston Band Crush as Video of the Week. Earlier this summer, the band was spotted by Snagle guitars founder and Thai metal legend Donpheebin KidKaewtid, who inked the band to an endorsement deal. Cougar Bait’s Lovecraft Tour has the band headlining clubs from Portland to Providence and all points in between. Their next Boston area date is headlining the Davis Square Theater in Somerville on January 26th.

Personnel

Cougar Bait features Chest Rockwell on Lead Vocals, Guitar, and Synth, Rod Hamilton on Lead Guitar and Vocals, CT Luscious on Drums, and Buck Strokem on Bass. This band fuses rock with funk, electronica, dance, and even live dubstep to create a sound all their own.

Quotes

Pulse Magazine hails, "the electrifying, hard rocking hip thrusting new band with the hilarious name... is quickly establishing themselves as Massachusetts' most notorious new band."

Unregular Radio says, "Their vibe has a glam-funk pulse with a classic rock drive."

Mark Kaye of Hear Now Live Productions states "Every once in a while I get to book and work a show with a band that is genre defying and pushes the envelope the way Cougar Bait did tonight. These kids are bad-ass."Daughters, lock up your mothers; This is Cougar Bait!
