Sonic Cathedral and Bad Vibrations team up for the first time to bring White Manna across the Atlantic.
"White Manna hail from California, where they enjoy a friendship and share a following with Carlton Melton, a band similarly dismissive of any part of being in a band that doesn't revolve around the swampiness of their sound. But White Manna are not actually as meandering nor as feedback-laden as The Melton, with a leanness that has more in common with the more accessible and famous Black Angels and Dead Meadow. Indeed, the artwork for White Manna's album is nearly identical to that for Dead Meadow's Old Growth. But, like so many of these bands, homage and a soulful kind of imitation is the basis of their existence. And also like so many of these bands, in this they succeed spectacularly." - The Quietus
