Long Description:
The Anxiety Effect is a studio based Metalcore band from Northern Pennsylvania consisting of John Lockwood (vocals), Jon Mongillo (guitars), Mario Nobilio (bass), and Geoff Greenman (drums). The band’s sound stems across 2 decades of various metal influences, ranging from commercial successes like Lamb Of God, Chimaira, Tool, Sevendust, and In Flames; to underground acts such as Bleed The Sky, Stemm, and Once Pure.
Originally formed in February 2011 by vocalist John Lockwood, the band started out as a 5 piece regional touring act, often filling venues to capacity. Production for their first studio release ‘They Anxiety Effect E.P.’ began in August of 2011, and was officially released on physical CD and digital download on January 21st, 2012. After a 2 year hiatus, the band would resurface in January of 2017 when Lockwood and drummer Geoff Greenman would reunite, adding guitarist Jon Mongillo to the mix. The band’s touring relationship with UFC theme song performing artist Stemm would bring bass player Mario Nobilio to the fold, and the group started production on new music at their own studio. On May 19th of 2017, their return track ‘Lockdown’ was released world wide through top music service sites such as iTunes, Spoitfy, Google Play, and Amazon. The track was co-produced, mixed, and mastered by Ben Schigel of Spider Studios out of Cleaveland, Ohio, who is known for his work with metal band Chimaira. The band continues to write new material with more tracks slated for release in 2018. For the latest updates, visit the band online at
