Published Nov 22, 2013Vancouver-bred/Toronto-based rock trio the Manvils launched a three-part EP series more than two years ago with Black Tornado. Now, the second instalment is finally ready, as Expats is coming out this week.
As previously revealed, each of the three EPs in the series is being recorded in a different city. The first one came from Vancouver, and Expats was cut in Toronto; the next one will be created in Chicago.
Expats was engineered and mixed by Lorne Hounsell (Fucked Up, Cuff the Duke). The initial release will be digital, and downloads will be issued alongside Dropcards. A 12-inch vinyl edition, running at 45 rpm, will follow in February. The tracklist is below; scroll past that to stream the rocking title track.
The band will launch the EP with a Toronto gig at Measure tonight (November 22). Dropcards will be available at the show.
