About

Mannequin Death Squad is an instrument swapping, two-piece, girl and boy, indie rock/punk band from Australia. The pair have toured extensively since their inception in 2016, having shared the stage with many including: NENA (DE), SOFT PLAY (SLAVES) (UK), Frenzal Rhomb (AUS), British India (AUS) and WAAX (AUS) to name a few.

The power duo have recently returned from the northern hemisphere, playing festivals and club shows across the UK, Europe and India. 21 dates in total throughout Europe featured an appearance at Rebellion Festival (UK), a supporting slot for NENA and an onslaught of incendiary performances across capital cities such as
Berlin, Paris, London, a sold out Edinburgh and more. The tour was capped off with a headline set at Ziro Festival in the scenic foothills of the Himalayas in Aranachal Pradesh, India.

The band’s latest single “Monsters” has garnered some serious press, being featured in Rolling Stone (IN), shared on Spotify’s “All New Rock”, “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds AU/NZ” editorial playlists as well as being listed in the KERRANG! Chart (UK). The track was spun on Triple J (AUS) as well as various radio stations across the world.

The fiercely independent duo has left a trail of enthusiastic and passionate fans in it's wake. Mixing catchy pop melodies with ferocious punk rock riffs, and an infectiously energetic live show. Having only released their long-awaited debut album “Super Mental Psycho” last year, the band have announced their sophomore album will be released in early 2024. “Super Mental Psycho” was co-produced with legendary Australian producer Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, The Angels, Divinyls).

Mannequin Death Squad is gearing up for a momentous 2023; with plans to release their second album as well as tour Europe, Australia Japan and more.
