PRAYING MANTIS Working On New Album

UK rock veterans PRAYING MANTIS have commenced work on their long-awaited new studio album with the working title of "Touch the Rainbow". The CD will likely be recorded during the month of September in Atlanta, Georgia for an early 2009 release via Frontiers Records.

PRAYING MANTIS' current lineup includes founding members Tino and Chris Troy on guitar and bass, respectively; Benjamin Reid on drums; Andy Burgess on guitar; and Mike Freeland on vocals. This lineup has already played a number of festivals in Europe during 2008.

According to a press release, PRAYING MANTIS' new songs "once again present the familiar blend of the hard rock edge with very melodic 'hookline' choruses that have always been an essential trade mark of MANTIS since the 1980s." Chris Troy states, "This may well prove to be the best album MANTIS have ever written!"
