MANDOWN Reveal Video For New Single ‘We Want Blood’

3rd July 2020

Farnborough, UK post-hardcore newcomers MANDOWN are pleased to reveal a suitably gory video for their new single ‘We Want Blood’,directed by cult alt rock icon Jamie Lenman.

The track is the latest to be taken from their forthcoming debut EP of the same name, which is set for release on 9th July 2020 via all good digital service providers.

Commenting on the track, guitarist Iain Turner says: “With writing We Want Blood, I thought of the first two lines of the verse and worked the music around it, a bit of a reversal of my usual song writing. The song lyrically isn’t aimed at any one person or organisation—I think sometimes it’s best to take your own interpretation on things and decide what it means to you.”

The song is the follow-up release to lead single ‘Try or Die’, which was released earlier this year to a rush of support from key alternative press including UPSET, DORK, VISIONS, Independent Music News, The Punk Site, Alt Corner, Bring The Noise UK, Into The Pit and more.

Produced by Chris Coulter (IDLES, Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman, Sun Arcana, EMP!RE) at Decimal Studios, with additional production, video direction, and design by alternative-rock cult icon Jamie Lenman, the forthcoming EP is a short, sharp punch of songs that boldly announces the band’s arrival.

“Jamie has written some of my favourite ever music,” enthuses Turner of working with Lenman, “so it was a great experience to work with him—the same with Chris. We had great experiences recording with him both times. I personally learned a lot during the pre-production and recording stages, about structuring songs and phrasing lyrics. It’s been really helpful moving forward with my songwriting.”

The pair will be revealing more music and hope to announce live shows in the near future, pending developments in the live sector relating to coronavirus.
