Published Aug 13, 2008An integral part of Vancouvers burgeoning weird punk scene, the scrappy bass-and-drums duo Stamina Mantis make an ideal live act. Donning homemade, custom outfits and playing explosive noise rock that will make your bones rattle, the band can batter their way into your heart through your bleeding ear canals.
As such, the announcement of a Stamina Mantis Canadian tour is exciting, to say the least. And even though theyve only confirmed three dates, it still gives weird punk fans in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan something to look forward to. Even better, it gives them a reason to get involved! If youd like to help book a show, contact the band at their MySpace page.
Stamina Mantis recently released a split seven-inch with Shearing Pinx on Reluctant Recordings.
