Black Manila Release Free Download Of Pére Lachaise
DEBUT SINGLE 'SHAKE THAT THING' RELEASED APRIL 1st THROUGH RIP RECORDS
'Their sound may have many fathers, but their songs are all their own...catch this exciting band now before they get too big.' - Metro
‘Black Manila are a band who have clearly decided that rock 'n' roll - at its key, most core level - is a degenerate art form, played by outcasts. Something that shouldn't be downloaded but rolled up, smoked, consumed and soaked in through every pore’ - Clash
‘Sounds something like The Strokes dipped in Jack White’ - The 405
Black Manila are three young punks from South London who have spent their formative years honing their love of music by diving into the fun and free world of garage rock & roll. As well as an extremely limited edition sold out 10” released through the Jaguar Shoes Collective, the band have truly captured the respect and attention of the capital's alt-rock underground with their accomplished yet raucous live shows.
Fusing together sunny west coast garage riffs with a distinctly British charm and swagger, Black Manila create one of the few bridges between London and the flourishing garage scene across Europe and America.
In 2013 Black Manila will tour the UK and Europe to support the release of their debut 7” single ‘Shake That Thing’. The single was recorded and produced at Toe Rag Studios by Liam Watson, famed for co-producing the Grammy award winning album 'Elephant' by The White Stripes.
