Van Gogh‘ is Australian scuzz-punk duo Mannequin Death Squad‘s third instalment from debut mini-album ‘Eat Hate Regurgitate’.

The song addresses the world’s obsession with living life through a lens and the tidal surge of consumerism and narcissism to the detriment of the planet’s key resources.

“We think it’s important to highlight how manipulative all forms of the media can be. It’s time to look at the world through your own eyes, recognise what is wrong and do something about it. Switch off. Switch it off.”

The brand new video for ‘Van Gogh’ is exclusively premiered on Gigslutz now – GIGSLUTZ

The Melbourne-based duo, whose first UK tour last autumn saw them personally invited by Slaves to join them at several shows, return to the UK in September with dates already confirmed for Brighton, London, Hull, York, Manchester, Sheffield & Edinburgh (with more tbc).

“raw energy, frothing anger and, crucially, great tunes”  The VPME
“killer songs, without exception”  Aural Aggravation
“truly exhilarating”  GigSlutz
“fiery grit-pop”  Skin Back Alley

‘Eat Hate Regurgitate’ is available on CD and download via Integrity Records.

New Ghosts of Social Networks single!

Ghosts of Social Networks release new single “Outside the Wheel” on 7th April, an urgent political rocker with a never more topical subject matter – the wheel of political ideology that spins on, impervious to dispute.

The alter-ego of Manchester-based Nathan Till, Ghosts of Social Networks turned musical heads from day one with 2016 debut “Love Potion” and follow-up singles gaining spot plays on BBC 6 Music, playlisting at Amazing Radio, a live session on Fubar Radio, and support at BBC Introducing Manchester, several Triple-A stations in the USA and over 25 UK regionals.

Inspired by new wave, Nick Cave and The National, Nathan’s music is classic yet innovative and, with the addition of Ben Dargue (drums) and Andrea Gobbi (bass), GOSN create an engaging live sound.

“a perfect example of far-reaching indie rock, with a fitting dash of new wave vibes”
Fame Magazine
“The band’s intrinsic sound is still one which proudly captures an essential Manchester vibe”
Louder Than War
“They write anthemic rock tunes with catchy melodies & choruses the size of houses”
One On One Music

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Robert Plant, The Sherlocks), “Outside the Wheel” is out on 7th April 2017.
