(LOS ANGELES, August 7 2009) - AUDIBLE MAINFRAME is a six-piece, live hip-hop band making a huge impact on the west coast with their creative blend of old and new hip-hop and socially conscious message. Performing with well-known artists such as Damian Marley, Blackalicious and Arrested Development, the band’s powerful lyrics coupled with their high-energy shows is what sets them apart from the rest. Their long-awaited, full-length album "Transients,” is set to release on August, 25, 2009 and promises to be the most comprehensive AMF album yet. In celebration of the new release, the band will host east & west coast CD release parties with featured shows in their hometowns on Saturday, Aug. 21 at Harpers Ferry in Boston, MA and Thursday, Aug. 27 at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA.

“Transients,” a 13-song, self-produced album, reflects the journey the band has been on for the last six years.  It offers an eclectic mix of hip-hop, soul, and dance grooves; telling stories about the bands childhood memories, triumphs together, and staying positive through rough times.  The album features a new lineup of instrumentation and presents an uplifting twist in today’s hip-hop world by incorporating a combination of acoustic & electronic beats and real musician flare. In comparison to their last album, “Transients” is a more mature AMF - lyrically, musically and spiritually.

"When people listen to this album I want them to feel like The Future just punched them in the face,” says AMF’s Emcee and lyricist, Exposition (a.k.a. Expo).   “We wanted to make the type of hip-hop record that made us fall in love with hip-hop in the first place: big beats, excellent musicianship, and next level throwback lyricism."

The album is a master blend of upbeat, original hip hop tracks including songs like “Subi Alto,” which means “climb high” in Cape Verdean Creole (Expo’s native tongue), and is about forgetting your troubles and climbing above the nonsense you may have experienced throughout your day, week, or life. It also features a group of talented, young children singing in the chorus. Another track, “Money and Flash,” describes their move from Boston to LA, and their adjustment period on the left coast, displaying a funky “west coast-influenced” hip-hop beat. The song “Don’t Be Sheep,” has an undeniable catchy chorus that shakes and moves audiences all over. Other featured songs on the album include “Ice Cold,” “Poison Ivy” and “Anybody Else.”

“Transients” will be available for purchase digitally on or online at as well as their official website The CD can also be purchased at select retail stores and at their live shows.

Originally from Boston, AUDIBLE MAINFRAME moved to the Los Angeles in 2006 and have been wowing crowds ever since. AMF includes six young musicians comprised of a vocalist, guitar, bass, drummer, keyboards/trumpet, and a DJ who combine their musical talent with the realities of everyday life in pure, hip hop form. Vocalist and Emcee, Exposition (a.k.a. Expo), takes the crowd on a journey of poverty, anger, happiness, and revolution through his masterful diction and rhyme. The AMF sound has been compared to such groups as The Roots, Rage Against the Machine, De La Soul, and Radiohead; however, their combination of old and new hip-hop gives AUDIBLE MAINFRAME a fresh, eclectic sound with a creative message that sets them apart from the rest.  

Riding a wave of awards and accolades brought with them from Boston, AMF has gained positive recognition, winning awards including the 2006 Mass Industry Committee Award for “Best Live Act” and “Best Underground Emcee".  After taking first place in Boston’s 107.3 FM WAAF’s “Battle of the Bands” in 2004, AMF was named the first ever hip-hop act to perform live on-air on an all rock station. As a result, they were also chosen among a pool of local up-and-coming acts to record their debut album on Emerson Records, home of the nation’s largest college radio station 88.9 FM WERS.  It didn’t take them long to add the West Coast scene to their resume by advancing to the finals of the 2009 International Emergenza Festival and winning the Star 98.7 FM & The District Weekly’s 2008 Battle of the Bands.  

AMF has created a remarkable hype within the industry being asked to support various superstars such as Damian Marley, Arrested Development, Common, Blackalicious, Tone Loc and Biz Markie.  The band’s most notable collaborations include an opening act slot for Slick Rick, which then led to a backing band role for his national tour from 2006-2007. They later recorded a live band re-creation of the classic hip-hop album “Dah Shinin’ with Smiff N’ Wessun.

What They Are Saying…

“Audible Mainframe’s musical mash-up of raw sound and tech-hop continue to dazzle crowds nationwide. Indeed, the show must go on.” -Jason Parham,

AMF’s sound boasts the foundations of Rage Against the Machine, the Roots and boom-bap pioneers De La Soul. And it gets funkier. Its six members also drape their sound with thick ’70s gold chains and a dash of John Shaft swagger." -Nate Jackson, OC Weekly

"Audible Mainframe has a way of making you appreciate the hip hop genre on a new level.” -Tamara Turner,

"The live instrumentation with guitars, drums, trumpets and saxophones gives the music an earthy backbone…the end result is a unique sound that builds upon the foundation laid by Roots-like bands. This is hip-hop that flows from a cerebral center: socially aware and not afraid to stare controversy in the face." -Shaun Flagg, Skope Magazine

“Audible Mainframe is a perfect example of a band to watch out for in the future." -Dan Eldridge
Pittsburgh City Paper

"There's a lot riding on Audible Mainframe. Between their buoyant radicalism and knack for serenading melting pots, they're one of the city's commercial hopefuls. Audible is at the top of the first heat, with an ability to touch masses while barking at the Black Thought/Kweli demographic." -Chris Faraone, Boston Weekly Dig
