A&R Factory

Yorktown, New York’s unholiest prodigal sons, Mainline, released their hard rock debut album, The Unholy Idol, on October 1st, 2021.

With their drive to deliver high-energy anthems that resonate on a deep level, their rise from the underground is imminent.

After taking influence from Iron Maiden, KISS, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath and finding time to find their own signature sound, Mainline’s furore appeals to classic rock fans and contemporary alt-rock fans alike. Their barbarously thrashy instrumentals are made instantly accessible through the elevated wicked persona of lead vocalist, Johnny Iodice.

The Unholy Idol album was recorded at Frightbox Recording Studio in Clifton, NJ, mixed and mastered by Bobby Torres and engineered by Bobby Torres, Brianna Testa, and Ben Karas.

Mainline said:

“We cross contemporary with classic rock in a unique way; we have the aesthetic of a modern rock band, but our sound is rooted in rock history and reminiscent of the classic bands that everyone loves. It is all just part of who we are as rock fans and what we would want to see and hear from other rock artists in this era.”

Amelia Vandergast at A&R Factory said:

“Classic Rock revivals are often hit or miss, but right from the outset of their career, Mainline have proven that they are right on the money with their high-octane anthems that are littered with searingly hot solos and enlivening vocals. We were psyched from the first hit.”



Mainline is Johnny Iodice (lead vocals, guitar), Anthony Schettino (bass), Devin Reck (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Mason Servedio (drums).

Anthony and Johnny met at a local music school in NY, instantly bonded over their love of classic rock bands and went in search of the missing pieces of the powerhouse they aspired to create.
Then they met Devin at the same music school a year later before finding Mason online; a few years later, Mainline was born. With numerous shows in New York under their belt and a show at Dingbatz hosted by Don Jamieson from Vh1's That Metal Show, they are looking to expand their reach and take their sound to an international level.

Their debut self-titled EP was released on February 21st, 2020, before their debut album, The Unholy Idol, was released on October 1st, 2021.
