News: It’s all go, with Mannequin Death Squad’s release of brilliant new track, Everybody’s Movin’

Melbourne/naarm power-punk duo, Mannequin Death Squad have unleashed a new song that is arguably their most powerful to date, in the bone-crunching juggernaut that is Everybody’s Movin’.

The hard-working two-piece have created (and self-produced) a song which will sit comfortably into their existing material whilst showcasing some of the heavier influences the band readily admit to from their formative years (think Magic Dirt, Megadeth, Hole & The Kills, to name a few).

Proving that work ethic, the band have also toured extensively both nationally and internationally, headlining shows across the United Kingdom, Europe and India, at events such as Rebellion Festival (UK) and SXSW (AUS). They recently supported Suicidal Tendencies across their sold-out Australian Tour and also shared the stage with acts such as Frenzal Rhomb, WAAX and SOFT PLAY (UK).

As far as the latest addition to the band’s repertoire is concerned, Elle and Dan say “Everybody’s Movin’ is about one of those nights out when you just don’t want to be there. The energy is raging, the music is shaking the floors. But deep down, it’s as if you’ve wandered onto a set where you don’t belong. The initial glamour of bright lights and attractive people has morphed into a bizarre world where everyone’s trashed, the floor is on the ceiling, and the flies are all dead. Leaving you in a personal tug-of-war between social pressure and the strong desire to exit.”

I have previously stated that I believe that it is hard to conceive that Elle and Dan are just a duo. The release of Everybody’s Movin’ does nothing to dent that belief. Their sound is full, and at times downright incendiary, with their live performances being similarly explosive, with each of them sharing guitar and drum duties throughout.
