Die Mannequin Announce Fall Tour In Support of Neon Zero
Die Mannequin is back in the groove. Make that a new groove, a neon groove. Neon Zero the band’s third full-length album, finds Die Mannequin not just resurrected, but reborn.
Rejuvenated and retooled their wham-bam-thank-you-man punk and guttersnipe metal has been infused with an inspired injection of edgy electronica, big beats, and some massive melodies, combine with clean and polished production.
The look of a studded leather jacket over a miniskirt, paired with studded, spiked heels and big hair. Is Courtney Love sucker-punching Emily Haines all while teaching Iggy Azalea, the real meaning of a new classic. You need it simpler? It’s an album that puts DM in EDM. This album turns dance music into dance metal.
Don’t call it a comeback, call it an evolution. The stomping swagger of their first single “Sucker Punch” combined with the ecstasy and violence, you are greeted with in “Welcome to the Badlands”, segwayed by the pulsing fervour of “Murder on the Dance Floor” then they hit you with the grind-groove of “Knock Me Out” and before you know it, the ominous slow burn of “Pretty Persuasion” is permeating through your bones, followed up immediately by the live-for-the-moment anthem “We Own the Night”, with your adrenaline running high; Die Mannequin switches it up with a tender-hearted neo ballad “I’m Just a Girl”.
With this album Die Mannequin has updated and upgraded their scrawled sonic signature infusing sharp synths, layered vocals and undeniable grooves. Diemaniac’s needn’t fear the new musical path that Die Mannequin is currently following as it all comes together harmoniously without sacrificing one iota of the core of Die Mannequin and its face melting, guitar-shredding grit.
