Manraze Preview New EP
(hennemusic) Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen's side project, Manraze, are previewing tracks from their forthcoming new EP, "I Surrender", due November 12. Formed in 2004, Manraze features Collen, Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook and Simon Laffy, the bassist from Collen's former glam-band, Girl.
The EP contains three songs, including the title track, which features background vocals by Debbi Blackwell-Cook, who also appears on "All I Wanna Do", a newly-recorded version of the song which first appeared on the trio's 2011 sophomore album, "punkfunkrootsrock." The final track is "Connected" - Live from Shepherd's Bush, a live studio performance from a studio podcast session, previously unreleased.
"The song is 8 years old," said Collen of the title track and new single. "It practically never got finished. I was on tour last year and started singing the chorus. Early this year, I re-did the guitars to Paul's original demo drums. I did a vocal and Simon played new bass-lines. Ger McDonnell then did a brilliant edit and mix on what we gave him. Debbi Blackwell-Cook supplied the wailing outro-vocals that you hear at the end of the song. We feel this is our best song yet." Check out the preview here.
