All Mankind have gained a loyal following across the USA, UK, and Australia, having performed over 500 times in the last three years to more than 100,000 fans. The band's live success has led to independent album sales in the thousands and award nominations for songwriting and performance in both Australia and America.
In 2008, All Mankind went into the studio with noted ARIA-winning producer David Nicholas (Elton John, Sting), and Peter Mayes (PNAU, Empire of the Sun). The resulting EP earned its way onto the airwaves of such diverse outlets as Indie 103.1FM Los Angeles, WRXP New York, MotorFM Germany, KNRK-FM Portland, OR, and ABC Radio Australia, while also gaining fans such as Mike Walsh, Music Director at the famed Xfm (UK).
Songs from the band's follow-up EP (mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Brandon Friesen) continued to have a strong radio reaction, and made their way into a number of prime time US television shows. “Open Your Eyes” was featured as the theme song in the TV promo for Emmy Award-winning ABC TV show “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.” In addition, their tune “Hollywood Tonight” has been heard regularly on MTV’s “The Hills.”
Now this quartet, currently based in Sydney but always on the go, has just finished recording their eagerly anticipated, epic full-length album with Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, The Kooks and Mercury
Prize-nominated act Foals) at The Motor Museum studios in Liverpool, England. The as-yet-untitled album was also mixed by Crossey and mastered by Robin Schmidt (Razorlight, VV Brown, Tommy Sparks, Go:Audio) at 24_96 Mastering in Germany.
This dynamic and inspiring collection of new music is sure to please the faithful while also recruiting many, many more fans to gather together beneath the All Mankind banner.
