The Manhattan Syndrome announce details of debut album Goodbye Iowa, and lead single ‘Keepsake’
‘Goodbye Iowa’ will be the band’s first full length album, following our 2011 EP ‘And we left it behind’. The first single and music video from the album, ‘Keepsake’ will be released in the coming weeks.
Following our debut EP in 2011, The Manhattan Syndrome have spent two years writing, recording, and producing our first full length album. Goodbye Iowa was recorded in Westland Studios by Alwyn Walker, produced by Walker and The Manhattan Syndrome, and mastered in Masterlabs by Aidan Foley. With guest appearances from notable Irish musicians like Valerie Francis (voice) and Eoin Grace (trumpet). We’re so happy with this album we might just do a dance.
Goodbye Iowa was partly crowd-funded through a highly successful Fund-it campaign, the unique rewards for which played a vital role in the making of the album itself. Contributing fans not only signed up to receive advance copies of the album and single, but named songs, featured on the cover art, and even took part in the recording itself!
‘Keepsake’ will be the lead single from the album, and is both an evolution of and a departure from The Manhattan Syndrome’s earlier work. The single’s video was filmed by Pearse Healy and Evan Heneghan, and stars two of Ireland’s brightest young acting talents in Zena Donnelly and Alex Hrenic.
Release date of Goodbye Iowa TBA.
