On December 1, 2010, Dunbar Entertainment will release “A Very Merry X-MASS EP.” an exclusive 2 Song Christmas CD featuring “Jingle Bell Rock” & “Grown Up Christmas List.” All proceeds from the sales of this “X-MASS” CD will benefit the Toys For Tots foundation. MASS have had numerous accomplishments over the years, but most notably is the selling of over a half million albums.   In 1985, MASS was signed to RCA records and released the album, “New Birth.” The single, “Do You Love Me,” was number one for over six weeks at many radio stations along the east coast. The video for that single was also in rotation on MTV and hit the Billboard charts. During the 1980’s, MASS went on to release “Take You Home” and “Voices in the Night,” which was produced by Michael Sweet of Stryper. These albums have been re-released on Retrospect Records. In July 2007, MASS released their comeback album, “Crack of Dawn” on Escape Music.   2010 has been a very productive year for the band. In May, the band released its new studio album “Sea of Black” via Escape Music. The band played several successful shows in support of “Sea of Black,” most notably the M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland along side such Classic Rock legends as the Scorpions, Cinderella, Vince Neil of Motley Crue and Kix. MASS also performed to a sold-out crowd at the legendary Regent Theater in their home state of Massachusetts, which was filmed for a DVD to be released by Dunbar Entertainment in early 2011. Most recently, Retroactive Records released the band’s long-lost A&M Records release, “Fighter” and also reissued the band’s “84 Unchained” EP.                                                                                                                                 Y MERRY X-MASS” EP is only available exclusively at www.massrocks.com

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
