MAN AND WASP — an international creative fusion featuring Shelby Cinca (FRODUS, DECAHEDRON, THE CASSETTES),Mike Schleibaum (DARKEST HOUR),and Håkan Johansson (DIVISION OF LAURA LEE, FRANTIC MANTIS) — has just self-released its debut, entited "Close the World, Open the Next". Born, recorded, produced and designed solely by its three members in an undisclosed Washington, D.C. basement, the effort is filled with the kind of "passion and love for music that can only come from three friends, three musicians who create for only creations' sake," according to a press release. "Herein lies a band that is not a business at heart but a band at heart."
Discover the music for yourself on the band's MySpace page. If you enjoy the material and wish to support future creations/shows, purchase the record on iTunes or other electronic outlet for $3.99. All proceeds will further MAN AND WASP's agenda — to make music for those who love music.
