Mortified Mortician was founded in early 2012 by Kyle Castronovo(rhythm/lead guitar) and Matt Jefferson(vocals) when Castronovo, struck by inspiration, demoed roughly a dozen songs in only 2 days.
He and Jefferson met doing various studio work together, during which the two learned they shared much in common, both musically and personally. Soon after, Mortified Mortician was born.The project instantly gained interest from Deen Castronovo. Enough so, that he decided to join the band, drumming on studio efforts, and playing live shows whenever his schedule would allow.(Deen currently drums for Journey and has also drummed for Ozzy Osbourne, Social Distortion and many others.)
The band's sound and feel have been compared to such artists as Marilyn Manson, Murderdolls, American Head Charge and Slipknot. Maintaining a dark shade of humor, they create their music and art freely with minimal filters or “rules” as to how they do it.
In July of 2012 Mortified Mortician unveiled their first single online, “Putting the Fun in Funeral”.
Their debut full length album titled, “The Dearly Disgusted”, currently in it's finalizing stages, is slated for release in winter 2013/14
The first live band lineup for Mortified Mortician, established in 2013, consists of Ryan Chisesi(Bass) and Dylan Gowan(Drums) Son of Lawrence Gowan of Styx.
