Resurrecting the licks and gravelly tones of America’s garage rock scene and uniting it with English raw appeal and psychedelic undertones, Black Manila have the sound to back it up. Loud, raucous and playing with swagger, they are converting non-believers
Formed in 2010 and hailing from South London, the band have previously released material on Big Dirty Engine Records, part of the Jaguar Shoes collective. Since then, they have toured Italy and been busy creating new material. On this their 2nd debut the group have moved forward, without losing their gritty and untamed personality. They are now in their own words ‘less teenage and more together, hungry to affect a generation’.
