The four-piece, indie-punk band from Philadelphia, PA, Mannequin Pussy, have recently announced their new album, Patience, due for release on June 21 through Epitaph Records.  This record will be the band’s second release on Epitaph and third in total.  Colins Rey Regisford (bass, vocals), Kaleen Reading (drums, percussion), Marisa Dabice (guitar, vocals), and Athanasios Paul (guitar, keys) have worked closely with producer/engineer Will Yip, who has also helped produce records for Quicksand and The Menzingers.

Mannequin Pussy are far from the ordinary. Dabice’s vulgar-yet-authentic lyrics will stir uncomfortable feelings, because they are SO TRUE. The band shared their first new track off the record, “DRUNK II,” and Dabice explains the meaning behind this song.

“it’s too easy now to look back on that song and feel a mixture of pity and disgust for myself and the emotions I poured into it. I never saw a breakup as anything other than emotional torture. But now, I understand that a breakup is a gift. Heartbreak is a gift. Someone leaving your life when you don’t expect them to is one of the most honest things we can experience. By electing to leave your life, someone is telling you their truth: that they can’t be there for you the way you wish they could. That they can’t love you the way that you loved them. It took me a long time to realize that it is better to be alone than to be with someone who doesn’t really want to be there. You should never have to convince someone to love you. At the end of the song, when I sing ‘Everyone gather round, I have the answer now,’ that is what I’m saying.”
