MEN: Off Our Backs

The single out 1st November on 7″ vinyl / digital download

Following on from the success of debut single “Credit Card Babies” on Trouble Records, MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consisting of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR), are set to release their second single “Off Our Backs” on Monday 1st November on IAMSOUND Records.

The group began in 2007 with the DJ/production/remix team of Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. With Le Tigre on hiatus, when the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD’s other new project Hirsuite. JD and Hirsute members Michael and Ginger now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants and producers. “Off Our Backs” comes in two formats with the following remixes on each:

7″ Vinyl
A1. Off Our Backs
B1. Off Our Backs (Jeppe’s Money Is A Major Issue Remix)

Digital Bundle
1. Off Our Backs (Album version)
2. Off Our Backs (Jeppe’s Money Is A Major Issue Remix)
3. Off Our Backs (Lemonade Remix)
4. Off Our Backs (Steven Bloodbath Remix)

The band will head out on a UK tour to coincide with the single release calling at the following venues:
THURSDAY 28TH OCTOBER – EDINBURGH SNEAKY PETES
FRIDAY 29TH OCTOBER – GLASGOW CAPTAINS REST
SATURDAY 30TH OCTOBER – NOTTINGHAM STEALTH

SATURDAY 6TH NOVEMBER – CLUB BRENDA @ MANCHESTER KRAAK GALLERY
