Formed in 2010 in the dense woods of Connecticut, MANNERS self released two EP’s and has been spreading their sound through out New England for the past couple of years. The band’s EP Apparitions has spawned great reviews, even being called “one of the best hardcore releases of the year, period” by Sputnik Music website. The website also went on to say “Vocalist Chris Hague proves to be something of an international superhero of hardcore rookies.” In 2011, the band found itself performing on the Break Thru Stage in Mansfield, MA at The Warped Tour and has been announced to play April 21st at this year’s New England Metal & Hardcore festival in Worcester, MA along with Bane, Cruel Hand, The Greenery and many more.
Chris Hague ” We couldn’t be more excited to work with MorseCode on this project. It’s the perfect label to put out this record and it will be amazing to see this release grow and expand through our partnership with them.”Label partner Rachel Rosen adds ” When we first heard of Manners we were impressed on how organic their songs were and the raw energy that came through. It’s awesome to see the next generation of hardcore kids put their own twist on the music.”
The record will consist of old and new material from the band and will be released on limited vinyl as well as CD. More details to follow.
