Published May 04, 2012Die Mannequin have already confirmed plans to tour Canada with fellow guitar worshippers Dearly Beloved, but that's not all that the hard-rocking outfit have in store. When that tour wraps up at the end of this month, Die Mannequin will set their sights on the new Danceland EP, due out June 12 via eOne.
This nine-song collection includes new tunes, along with material recorded during the making of Bruce McDonald's new film Hard Core Logo 2, which prominently features Die Mannequin and frontwoman Care Failure.
A press release explains, "While filming Hard Core Logo 2, Bruce set up the production so that the band was actually recording new tracks live off the studio floor with legendary Canadian producer Peter Moore (Neil Young, Diana Krall, Cowboy Junkies)."
The songs are reportedly "raw and stunning" and capture "a group that is starting to enter the zenith of their career." Check out the tracklist below, and scroll past that to see the band's tour schedule.
