Norwegian outfit Mantric has issued the following announcement about releasing the "Die Old" EP:
"We know you've been waiting five long years...and so have we. But here - finally - new material from Mantric! We're happy to announce that we have signed a deal with Bergen's hardcore-pride Loyal Blood Records, where they know what it's like making music with your heart, and not your ego nor your greedy wallet.
"Later this year, they'll give you the whole album, but first you'll get the three-song EP 'Die Old.' Slightly more poppy than most of the album, you'll get the cathcy rock-oriented title-track, a 70s prog rock track and a cove rsong of the Cardigans.
"Hints of both Swervedriver, Landberk, Lanny Kravitz, Led Zeppelin and harder rock might be found here, in just three tracks. If you don't want to wait until June 19th to hear it, order one of these new Mantric shirts NOW and get the EP download instantly here."
