(Submitted) Cross-continental indie/pop duo Maniac will release their debut, Mania, on March 15.
The duo is co-fronted by Shawn Harris, formerly of Oakland, California based-band the Matches, and Jake Grigg of Australian band Something with Numbers.
Produced by Maniac and Matt Radosevich (30 Seconds to Mars, The All American Rejects and the Matches), MANIA features 11 tracks recorded in America and Australia. The album's first single, "Give It Up," was added to Australia's hit station Triple J this summer.
Maniac explore the highs and lows of life and love through a sound that's got both a retro vibe but a thoroughly modern, unique twist.
An immediate digital download of the album comes with all vinyl preorders, on sale Monday, March 1, at 12 p.m. PST on the band's official Web site, www.ManiacMania.comcom.
