Farnborough, UK post-hardcore newcomers ManDown have announced that their debut EP, We Want Blood, will be released on 9th July 2020 via all good digital service providers.
To celebrate the news, the band are streaming unreleased EP track ‘Try or Die’—a no-nonsense introduction to their roiling, tempestuous guitar-driven music, filled with righteous indignation and an abundance of frantic energy.
Commenting on the track, guitarist Iain Turner says: “‘Try or Die’ is about those times when you just feel like you have just had enough of everything, but the only way forward is to just take in on the chin and get on with it. That’s life sometimes. I think everyone can relate to that, especially at the moment.”
Produced by Chris Coulter (IDLES, Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman, Sun Arcana, EMP!RE) at Decimal Studios—with additional production, video direction, and design by alternative-rock cult hero Jamie Lenman—the EP is a short, sharp punch of songs that boldly announces the band’s arrival.
