Recently, NSW coast boys turned Melbourne residents – Mild Manic – released a killer new single in “Global Threat”; 4:44 minutes of energetic pop punk that simply does not relent. With artists like Luca Brasi and CERES storming forward with such a frenetic brand of punk music, Mild Manic slide in well alongside.
The end result is furious and impassioned, most certainly exciting. We can’t wait to hear more from the guys as 2018 rolls on…but! To find out a little more about this band to watch, the guys have given us little insight into the bands they’ve been digging and in particular, the influences that helped “Global Threat” come together. We’re jumping back down the Alexisonfire rabbit hole today…
With Sam (vocals/guitar) and Chris (guitar) being brothers they’ve always listened to a lot of the same stuff and also learning guitar together with Metallica the forefront of their riffage ways. Alexisonfire and Minus the Bear came later into the teen ages dominating the home stereo.
MINUS THE BEAR
For Jye (Drums) and Dave (Bass) previously playing in a punk/hardcore band together, Miles Away is a band who have heavily influenced them over the years. Two bands we’ve all had on high rotation over the last eight months are Luca Brasi and WAAX!
