Listen to Mini Mansions' brand new single
New Album Guy Walks Into A Bar… Out July 26th on Fiction Records
Los Angeles trio Mini Mansions, comprising members of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets, have today released their new single ‘Bad Things (That Make You Feel Good)’ and you can listen to it here.
Lead singer Michael Shuman says of the track, which premiered on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show last night, “Sometimes in life we forget to be ourselves and really let loose. I live my life inspired by two people: Sigmund Freud and Gary Numan. Both adopting the grand idea of the ‘Pleasure Principle’. Our new track “Bad Things (That Make You Feel Good)” is the musical and lyrical marriage of the two greats."
The unique personalities of Michael Shuman, Zach Dawes and Tyler Parkford’s are reflected in their third forthcoming album Guy Walks Into A Bar… The album was recorded at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles in 2018 and is a record that examines the kind of hip-swaying rock'n'roll you’d find on a dive bar jukebox. Co-produced by Shuman and long time collaborator/mixer Cian Riordan, there are some additional familiar voices dotted in with a duet with The Kills’ front woman Alison Mosshart on “Hey Lover” and backing vocals from Z Berg (former singer in The Like) on “Forgot Your Name” and the disco banger, “Living In The Future”, which sounds like Devo by way of ELO.
Mini Mansions will embark on an extensive UK tour, featuring Jon Theodore of Queens of the Stone Age on drums, including a gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow on Monday 6th May 2019.
