The MANICS are a band that stands for Rock 'n' Roll if by that you mean music being played LIVE, being played from the HEART and being played with a LOVE for it all!
The band has changed members a few times during the years but that's just a natural progression. Today The MANICS are stronger, sharper and more creative than ever and there's more to come.
2010 - The MANICS are formed by Peter Aspegren and Gustav Andersson in their native town of Norrköping, Sweden.
2011 - Drummer Niklas Ohlson and bass player Fredrik Malmbecker joins the band.
2012 - Release of debut album "Please panic, it's...", the recordings are done in just one live studio take with only vocals and solo guitar being overdubbed.
2013 - Gustav leaves the band and the present shape of a trio is now cemented by remaing members Peter, Fredrik and Niklas.
2014 - The two track single "Drowning//Demons" (b/w "From a Distance") is recorded and released - soon after this Niklas decides he wants out and leaves the band.
2015 - Introducing new drummer Jonas Gustavsson and by late summer another addition of personnel comes along in the shape of promoter/manager Paul Parker. Enter the studio to record second album.
The MANICS are:
Peter Aspegren - Vocals//guitar
