One of the breakout stars of 2015, Mangelwurzel haven’t failed to impress with their frenetic and intoxicating tunes. A violent concoction of punk rock, 70s kraut rock, jazz, and power pop, the Melbourne six-piece have been tantalising us for well over a year. Now the wait is over as the band announce that their debut album Gary is set for release on Friday February 26.
The band have also released their latest single I.O.U, which follows on from My House, Everybody’s Friend and Fishy Fry. Gary was recorded by Liam Barton at The Bank, with King Gizz’s Stu Mackenzie on mixing duties and mastering done by Mike Young.
To celebrate the release the band will embark on a six date tour visiting major capital cities. Their live shows have left audiences gob-smacked in the past, so do yourself a favour and get down to a show. The Gary tour is presented by your mates at Happy, Tone Deaf and 123 Agency.
