Meet the Manimals: Haley, Jaynie, Bear, Dick, and Matty O.



If you don’t know us yet, we’re a band of incorrigible scamps from NYC with a penchant for glitter and loud “WOAH-OH” choruses.
Haley, Jayne, The Bear, The Dick, and Matty O make silly, spooky, totally aggro, weirdly emotional glam/pop-punk/nerdy party rock together. Our songs are about fun, feelings, and fucking up. We just want to save the day with rock n roll and buy you a whiskey shot, and have been attempting to do so in one way or another since our 2012 debut, Born Strange. In 2016, we released our second album- called SEVEN- that was based on A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones (it was also our first time messing around with Patreon). The whole thing was a pretty rad experience: we got to make tons of art that deepened the project, people from all over the place were able to find us and enjoy the record, we got to play at fan conventions, and we made so, so many friends. 



Our second foray into Patreon was for our third LP, Multiverse, which is currently in production and expected in early winter 2018. We've loved sharing with our people the sometimes fraught and frustrating journey of making a record (and surely there will be a lot more of that as we wrap this sucker up) but at this juncture, we wanted to pivot this platform towards the broader, ongoing Manimals adventure. We always have grand plans and sometimes they just aren't feasible, but we would love to lavish you with whatever strange gifts we can muster. Support from fans inches some of those grand plans towards reality! If you're the kind of soul that likes to help artists give you more of that stuff you like, we want to rise to the occasion. 

Imagine this is a monthly subscription box... except everything is Manimals-related and there are no face masks. (Ok maybe we'll make face masks but NO PROMISES.) You can go high or low, we are grateful for it all. With your help, we could finish Multiverse, make music videos for all of the songs because we want to be Beyonce, make physical copies, design new merch, tour and travel, throw parties, build costumes, and also create a steady stream of nonsense for Patreon Eyes Only. You can change or cancel your pledge at any time, and also comment to let us know what you'd like to see more of! We always hope to foster a fun community where everyone can be outspoken and themselves, whether it's at a show or online. 

The Manimals love you and think you're a very brave and badass individual. Keep doing that.
