The garage punkrock lieutenants of Sweden are back with a bang! The Manikins has joined Lövely Records for the release of their upcoming, sixth studio album "Swedish Woods". Formed in 1999, 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 and ready to unleash a raw and primitive explosion of Swedish rock music. The album features 12 brand new tracks, clocking in at 31 minutes, where the band explore the more traditional sounds of rock'n'roll while keeping the energy and volume levels cranked to the max. Recorded and produced by The Manikins in their own Omega Studios in Nyköping, mixed and mastered by Joakim Forsberg. The band comments: "After years in solitary, due to the pandemic we've been working on new songs and are now ready to share it with the world. In the process of the writing we've been searching in the back catalogues of the most primitive rock n' roll in history. It's hard hitting, trashy, simple yet with a twist of finesse that makes you wanna hear it over and over again. Nothing is so ageless as the dark and massive woods of Sweden, and in a time of turbulence we wanted to create something similar to this in our music. With the classic recipes of rock n' roll that has been used and recycled since the time we had the ability to count 1, 2, 3, 4, we want to describe our contemporary struggles and create sounds and beats that will let you let loose." For fans of garage rock of both yesterday and today, Buzzcocks, The Hives, The Nomads, The Marked Men, The Kidnappers, The Devil Dogs.
