MANKIND, four guys that could have been seeds planted at Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, drawing strength from the graves of Jim Morrison, Chopin and Gertrud Stein. Instead the plants grew in Ingmar Bergman's land of held back silence - bonded by a mutual musical love and existential brooding.

The Line of Best Fit describes their work as "A shock to the system not unlike a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart", NME call them "snotty four-piece MANKIND", or as The Needle Drop simply puts it; "MANKIND forever".
