Man Man To Tour In Support Of New Album 'Life Fantastic'

The brilliantly unconventional rock band Man Man will be taking their notoriously riotous live show on the road in support of their anticipated new album Life Fantastic due out May 10th via Anti-Records. The first single from the album entitled "Knuckle Down" is now available for purchase digitally at iTunes and Amazon.

The Philly outfit has become increasingly beloved for their high energy adventurous sound utilizing an assortment of instruments and musical genres, from soulful piano and a kinetic barrage of percussions to elements of experimental jazz and a brand new form of riotous modern pop music. The new album Life Fantastic was produced by Mike Mogis of the band Bright Eyes and offers a both deeply introspective and exhilarating new sound.

The new album Life Fantastic is currently available for pre order at the ANTI Store.

The blues influenced sultry garage rock of Brooklyn based band Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers will join the band for dates between 4/29-5/28 and 5/31-6/03.
