As the buzz continues to spread around As Paradise Fall’s latest effort, more and more media outlets are picking up on the bizarre instrumental track the band decided to release as their first cut from their upcoming recording project.

Free Ride On The Tyde



Mannequin Republic was proud to be part of several big shows in Brisbane this July, including the event at The Triffid in Newstead where our very own Trinatyde rocked the house down with Areal, Laceration Mantra, Smoking Martha and Direct.

Leading up to this epic event, Trinatyde held a little competition on their official Facebook page to give away two free passes to the show.  On behalf of the band we would like to congratulate Angela Biddle, whose enthusiasm for Trinatyde earned her two door spots and a sexy Trinatyde t-shirt.

If you’re a fan of good metal and you’re not following Trinatyde on Facebook, make sure you do it right now by going to and hitting the “like” button.  Loads of interesting things coming out of the Trinatyde camp in the near future.

Make sure you also make room on your schedule for the massive Metal United Down … more...

The focal point of the article quickly slides to the mystery man stepping into the role of vocalist for As Paradise Falls asking “literally who?”  Fuelling more speculation behind the recent changes made to the band’s line-up.

As always, I Probably Hate Your Band put out a quality product, which we strongly encourage all of you to check out right now at
