Die Mannequin have a new record in the works for 2014…..
DIE MANNEQUIN; DANCELAND, 2012
YOU KNOW, sometimes there are just no words to describe just how absolutely fucking brilliant something is.
Partly recorded on the set of the movie Hard Core Logo 2 with Daz Longknife on drums and some recorded in the studio with Jack Irons on drums, this non stop, no let up, assault of banshee bawling brilliance is spot on. Just enough melody, the right amount of poise, screaming when the song needs it and reasoning in the lyric.
Still there are not enough, or not the right words to describe this magnificent piece of art.
All hail to the Mexicans!!

Dearly Beloved are always working on something!
DEARLY BELOVED, HAWK VS PIGEON; RELEASED MAY 22 2012
Recorded in California and Ontario, this eclectic mix of heavy bass and melodic yet ripping vocal is a must listen. With appearances from Brendan Canning and Care F, among others, you have heard nothing like this ever before.
Each song brings new and different to the table.
It has been six years coming but it has finally arrived and so have Dearly Beloved.

Relight a little Fire…Woman!
THE CULT, CHOICE OF WEAPON RELEASE DATE; MAY 2012
Critics…. before you start you mindless slather and attempts to nullify all that The Cult were, are and will be, the following has to be said.
Ian Astbury can still sing. He sounds no different than he did on Fire Woman, Love Removal Machine and Wild Flower. He puts his all into every song on this record. It is raw, real and it rocks. You will be immersed from the first note and before you realize it, you will be pushing the replay button. It is seamless and musically sound form start to finish.
Ian Astbury Billy Duffy John Tempesta Chris Wyse is the current line-up of The Cult and has been since 2006. That makes for a pretty tight knit bond and a stability that some musicians can only ever dream of. It is reflected in this Chris Goss and Bob Rock produced piece that is already hot news on the lips of the big guns of music.
Choice of Weapon is current. The Cult are obviously not making an attempt to re-capture days gone by. Of course if you were a Cult fan back in the day, then it is in no doubt that you will remain loyal with the release of this record. However, it is certain to hypnotize and attract more than a good few new fans with it’s unique melodies and a voice that can only be compared to chocolate, drizzled over vanilla ice cream, with sprinkles for that added kick.
The Cult. Here and Now!
