Muscles Announces New Album 'Manhood'

Muscles Announces New Album 'Manhood'

One-man party machine Muscles has done it again. Manhood is a destruction of truth and lies of Australian culture, recorded by a guy who grew up in rural Australia in his mid-20s, in a makeshift studio in South Melbourne.

Described as a prelude to his debut album Guns Babes Lemonade (which featured 'One Inch Badge Pin', 'Sweaty' and 'Ice Cream'), Manhood is a tour de force of 'no holds barred' electronic post-punk, euro-dance, Italo disco, engaging sophisticated (through drunkenness) camp masculine pop, this is an album that balances itself in It's extremity.

Muscles will be unleashing his Manhood on the world June 15, 2012.
