2018 continues to be the year of "Guess Who's Back?" in the music world - and we are totally on board with it, especially with the most recent news that Aussie rock beasts Mammal are officially back with some brand new music and a tour announce to boot.
After starting off in 2006, Mammal very swiftly took no prisoners with their blitzing brand of hard rock infused with booming grooves and signature bombastic gushing from frontman Ezekiel Ox. Fast forward three years and this explosive quartet found themselves going the route of many, busting up due to personal, political, musical and business differences - but then 2017 came knocking and so did a few teaser reunion shows, but the question still remained… "Are Mammal truly back??"
Well, that question finally be answered with a fist in the air and a resounding "HELL YEAH!!". Mammal ARE back - bigger and better than ever, and they come bearing gifts. Frontman Ezekiel Ox says of the new track - "It’s been 10 years since we dropped new shit, talk is cheap, turn it up and dance."
It is with great pleasure that Mammal announce the release of their first single ‘Community’ with bonus track ‘Virtue Signalling’, and the band loved the new song so much that today they are also releasing a videoclip for ‘Community’, directed by young gun Jack Dyball.
But wait, there’s more! To support the release of ‘Community’ - Mammal is also announcing that they will be embarking on a national tour presented by artist agency New World Artists - and are bringing Brisbane heavyweight funksters Osaka Punch and Melbournian hip-hop artist Fresh Violet along for the ride!
Needless to say these shows are set to be massive and the lads cannot wait to hit the road and celebrate their return with all their extended Mammalian family around the country!
