Neil Sabatino is an American musician from New Jersey, and is lead singer of Fairmont, and the founder of Mint 400 Records

Early work[edit]

Pencey Prep performing at the Wayne Firehouse, 2000.

In the late 90s, Sabatino played in the punk rock bands Little Green Men, Pencey Prep, and Stick Figure Suicide,[1] the latter becoming a staple of Central Jersey Hall shows, and were often added as the opening act for national acts touring through the region. In 2000, he joined Pencey Prep, a post-hardcore and punk rock band that was fronted by future My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, as the lead guitarist.[2] Pencey Prep was signed to Eyeball Records later that year, and they played local shows with the Strokes, Nada Surf and Atom & His Package.[3][4] Sabatino appears on both of Pencey Prep's releases, Long Walk to Forever and Heartbreak in Stereo.[5] He left the group in 2001, and the following year, Pencey Prep disbanded.

Fairmont[edit]

Sabatino signed with Reinforcement Records in 2001 as Fairmont, which was initially an acoustic solo project.[2] It became a full band by the time of their second release, Anomie, with former Pencey Prep bassist John McGuire joining shortly after. Fairmont is classified as alternative indie rock, and Sabatino's vocals have been described as resembling "a lovesick teen in the throes of puberty," and a "husky melodic musing."[6][7] They have toured for a decade across the United States, and released over ten albums, as well as a dozen EPs.[8]

Other work[edit]

Vocalist Teeter Sperber of Ladybirds approached Sabatino in 2007, to appear on the electro pop album Regional Community Theater, and the two share vocals on the song "Lady of Travel and Leisure." In 2011, Sperber and Sabatino released the EP Grape Soda as Mergers & Acquisitions. Sabatino authored and illustrated the comic The Black Hat, which was published in 2012. Sabatino is best known as an artist for the cover of the Pencey Prep "Heartbreak In Stereo" album[9]. [10] He also designs album covers for the Mint 400 Records label.

Mint 400 Records[edit]

Sabatino founded Mint 400 Records in 2007.[11][12] As of 2020, the label has made over three-hundred and fifty releases.
