Gratitude For Glen


Mannequin Republic would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who came out to send off Glen Barrie, guitarist for As Paradise Falls, who passed away unexpectedly during the band’s recording overseas.

Glen was a much loved figure in the local music scene, playing with several bands prior to finding his home with As Paradise Falls.  It was a great loss to all of us who enjoyed his musical ability and friendship.

Major thanks to the bands who donated their time and energy to remembering Glen in style, including our entire Mannequin Republic roster: As Paradise Falls, A Breach Of Silence, Bayharbour, Down Royale and Trinatyde, plus special guests Among The Vanished.

We would further like to thank The Brightside for donating their venue, Vanguard Touring and the long list of sponsors for their incredible support, including Seventh Circle Studio, Via Studios, Beserk and Bach Guitar Services.

Of course it’s the people who make the show, so no thank you can be stronger than to the many, many fans who turned up to say goodbye to a good man who left us way too early.

We hope that you will continue to show your support for Glen’s family by looking at the GoFundMe page for his wife Cassie at
