Like a mixture of dangerous chemicals, equal parts guitarist extraordinaire, rudeboy rock drummer, and the righteous rhythms of a badass bass player and all together you have one hell of an explosive combination. Add to this concoction the experience of selling 75 million records and the attitude that comes from being at the top of your game and you’ve got MANRAZE. This London-based alternative/nuwave rock band was formed by iconic lead guitarist Phil Collen of Def Leppard. The band members include punk rock forerunner Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols on drums and Simon Laffy, rockin’ bass player of Collen’s former glam-band, Girl. The long awaited and highly anticipated sophomore album for these revolutionaries of Rock, titled punkfunkrootsrock, will be unleashed upon the masses on August 2nd through Rocket Science Ventures in the U.S. and Canada. The album will also be released July 27th in Japan on Nippon/Columbia and in the Europe and UK via Edel Music. In addition, a Limited Edition version will be available for order in the U.S. as soon as June 1.
