"some music was meant to stay underground..."

Manntis Sign Wth Century Media Records

Southern California quintet MANNTIS have officially signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The group’s debut album, "Sleep In Your Grave", is set for a June 28th release. The disc was produced by Cameron Webb (DANZIG, MOTÖRHEAD, SOCIAL DISTORTION) and features 11 blistering tracks of unrelenting metal intensity. The group have been influenced by a diverse number of bands ranging from MESHUGGAH and PANTERA to KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and ZAO, to name just a few, and their pummeling sound reflects the combination of these influences.

MANNTIS originally formed in 2000 and immediately began playing anywhere and everywhere possible. Their stunning stage presence was undeniable and overwhelmed anyone that stepped in front of them. The buzz spread quickly throughout the underground, but their biggest break would come in 2004 when they gained worldwide recognition from their participation on the hit MTV show "Battle For Ozzfest". The group are now out to prove that they can easily go head to head with the genre's elite.

Jake Sirokman (vocals) further conveys his excitement over the recent signing: "We're extremely happy to be with Century Media Records. We love the other bands on the roster and are proud to be alongside them for years to come. One thing is for sure: some people may have heard about us because of the 'Battle for Ozzfest' show, but we're a dedicated band with over five years in the scene, not just some reality show poseurs looking to extend our 15 minutes of fame. No doubt that 'Battle for Ozzfest' was a great opportunity, but we're grateful that CM saw through smoke and mirrors of TV and saw us for the band we are. Bottom line, we're here to bring the fucking metal. See ya on the road."

MANNTIS recently embarked on the nationwide "Battle For Ozzfest Tour" with A DOZEN FURIES and CYN, the show's other two finalists.
