About Mannequin Pussy

A punk rock band whose music is emotionally raw but leaves room for emotions other than rage, Philadelphia's Mannequin Pussy found a home on the Tiny Engines label, releasing a pair of critically lauded albums in the mid-2010s before making the jump to Epitaph's roster for 2019's Patience.
They were formed in 2013 by Marisa Dabice (vocals and guitar) and Thanasi Paul (guitar), who had been friends since childhood. The two began making music as a duo in New York, but after moving to Philadelphia as they began refining their sound, they became a trio with the addition of drummer Drew Adler. The band released a debut album in 2013, Gypsy Pervert, also known as GP. The album received positive press in the indie punk media, which attracted the attention of independent punk label Tiny Engines Records, which reissued Gypsy Pervert in 2014. Mannequin Pussy hit the road, touring in support of the album, and by the time they were ready to record again, they had a new lineup. Drummer Adler was out, and along with new timekeeper Kaleen Reading, the band also added bassist Colins Regisford, also known as Bear. The four-piece edition of Mannequin Pussy cut a second album, Romantic, which was released by Tiny Engines in October 2016. The album, short but strong at under 20 minutes, received enthusiastic reviews and the band went on a nationwide tour throughout 2017 in support of it. The following year they returned to the studio to write and record their third album with producer Will Yip (Quicksand, the Menzingers). Released by Epitaph Records in 2019, the resulting album, Patience, was a more melody-driven effort. ~ Mark Deming
