We Signed Atlantis

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

Mannequin Republic is pleased to announce that we have officially signed We Built Atlantis to a retaining agreement.

In what will most likely be our last signing for 2012, we are happy to add Jimmy, Dan, Jock, Sy and Nunnzy to the roster.  We all look forward to hearing more from them as they continue to put out awesome tracks infusing styles of hardcore and pop-punk to their brutal yet catchy tunes.

For fanatics in Queensland that may not be familiar with We Built Atlantis, they hold the distinction of being one of Newcastle’s brightest up and coming live music acts.  They have been featured in American print media and have had their EP released in Japan by STM.  They have played the Groovin’ The Moo Festival and have endorsements from Monster Energy, History Clothing, Arkaik Clothing and Eyes Of Envy.

We look forward to seeing what they can do … more...
