Lövely Records are proud annouce that The Manikins has joined the label for the release of their upcoming, studio recorded album ”Swedish Woods”. Formed in 2000, this high energy garage punk outfit is known for their intense live shows, having frequently toured Europe and even making it across the pond for a US tour in 2009. Now they’re back with their 6th full-length album, ready to unleash a raw and primitive explosion of Swedish rock’n’roll. The first single leading up to the album is called ”In My Head” and is out now on all streaming platforms together with a music video.

The Manikins on the new single:

”In My Head” is a straight up garage banger telling you to not take any guff from people who want to drag you down. It features all the stuff you like, dirty guitars, trashy drums and handclaps, so you know it's good!

The Manikins started in Nyköping, Sweden back in 2000. They started out as a trashy punk rock act with outfits like Teengenerate and The Devil Dogs as their biggest influence. After their first two album releases (only 4 months between them) they became a frequently touring act in Europe and was praised as one of the best live acts in the underground garage punk scene. The touring continued after the release of the “Lie, Cheat and Steal” album and the praised, fourth LP “Crocodiles”. This was also followed by a US Tour in 2009.After this the band had a break but in 2017 they reformed and started writing songs for the album with the prescient title, “Bad Times” that was released in 2018. Plans were made for a longer european tour and also a second visit to the states but it all got canceled due to the pandemic.Now the band is back with their 6th album “Swedish Woods” with 12 garage punk rock slammers recorded in their own Omega Studios in Nyköping. After days, weeks and months in the studio they recorded26 songs and have selected a package that in some ways differs from their recent songs. They now in bigger extent explore the more traditional sounds of rock n roll and are eager to get on the road to do what real bands do ... slam dunk the ball of primitive rock n roll and get the places pumpin’!
