New rock & roll concept album based on ASoIaF

Recommended Posts

I'm a long-time lurker of these forums, but I've never posted. So I hope this doesn't seem self-promotional! My band is about to release a concept album inspired by ASoIaF/GoT on April 24th, and I really just want to talk to other fans about it! It's called SEVEN and is comprised of seven songs from different characters' POVs- we're a glam/punk/powerpop band but the album employs a few different genres. We're also doing a release show/party in Brooklyn on April 23 if anybody lives in the area! The venue The Way Station (a Doctor Who themed bar) is doing a whole GoT night with trivia, costumes, and other geeky bands. There's a bunch more info on our website if you're interested: http://www.manimals.band

I attempted to write these with tons of literary references (and a few show ones), but in a way that could also work totally out-of-context, because I focused on the more universal themes and emotions found in these characters' arcs. I can share links to it when it gets released!

Album is out! https://manimalsnyc.bandcamp.com/album/seven

When you buy it, you also get a digital liner notes booklet and a password to a private site with 100+ days of bonus content I've been creating throughout the process of making this record. Also if you're interested in looking at the lyrics and picking them apart, I made Genius notes for each song: http://genius.com/albums/The-manimals/Seven. It's a fun way to annotate all the references, and other people can make contributions too.

I hope you guys like the record!
