With his former band, Shadow Division, local bassist Joe LaGuardia teamed up with local producer Jim Stewart to release a terrific EP. The band regularly played around town too.

Now, LaGuardia has turned his attention to a new group, Mr. Carnivore.

“This group is the realization of working in music for over 15 years now,” says LaGuardia. “I believe in this project more than anything I have ever worked on before.”

Currently at work on an album, the band has just released a music video featuring LaGuardia’s brother, Pat, who gives himself a haircut in the video.

“Saying exactly what I mean without being shrouded and cloaked in cryptic lyrics excites me,” says singer-guitarist Pat LaGuardia, who wrote the track. “In a general sense, the song is about being okay and comfortable with a perceived major change — like cutting all that beautiful hair off of my head. It could be perceived as a big deal or a big change, but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter to anyone.”

In addition to the LaGuardia brothers, the band includes singer-guitarist Mike Pappas and drummer Kevin Hannah.
