Indie Recordings has announced the signing of Norway's MAN THE MACHETES, and the release of their debut album, Idiokrati, on January 29th in Europe and January 25th in Germany/Austria.
Today the band release the single, 'Mageplask', from the upcoming album as a taste of what’s to come from this explosive, young band. The single can be heard below:
The band had this to say about the signing and the new album: "We feel privileged to be working with Indie Recordings to release our debut album. We have been met with professionalism, good advice and it’s been great working together so far. We are very excited about the reception of our first single and the album when it’s released in January. The album contains 10 tracks that are characterized by hard work and a high party factor. The nearly 30 minutes are intense, without much breathing space and production-wise we are very pleased. Eric Ratz has done a fantastic job and has been a major factor in giving each song the identity that we have been looking for. We are so excited!"
In a matter of two years, Man the Machetes has gone from playing small venues in their home country, Norway, to playing festivals like Pstereo and Hove, being awarded Ukas Urørt by the Norwegian radio broadcasters, NRK P3, and warming up for bands like GALLOWS and KVELERTAK.
