MANRAZE, the London-based rock band formed Phil Collen, along with punk rock forerunner Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) on drums and Simon Laffy, rockin’ bass player of Collen's former glam-band, Girl, will release their new EP, I Surrender, on November 12th.
I Surrender will be comprised of three songs, including the title track, which features background vocals by Debbi Blackwell-Cook, who also appears on “All I Wanna Do”, a newly-recorded version of the song which first appeared on the trio’s 2011 sophomore album punkfunkrootsrock. The final track is “Connected-Live from Shepherd’s Bush”, a live studio performance from a studio podcast session, not previously released.
The first single, “I Surrender”, was nearly forgotten about, explains Collen, "The song is 8 years old. It practically never got finished. I was on tour last year and started singing the chorus. Early this year, I re-did the guitars to Paul's original demo drums. I did a vocal and Simon played new bass-lines. Ger McDonnell then did a brilliant edit and mix on what we gave him. Debbi Blackwell-Cook supplied the wailing outro-vocals that you hear at the end of the song. We feel this is our best song yet."
