All Mankind, originally from Sydney, and currently based in the UK, have just released their debut full-length album ‘Simple Desire’. The album was recorded and produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks, Foals) in Liverpool, England.
The band chose to record the album using traditional techniques, recording to tape, using vintage analogue gear, recording 'live' as a band, and relying on performance rather than technology. As a result, some of the songs were recorded in only a few takes.
All Mankind have played hundreds of shows since forming in 2008, taking them from Australia to the US, UK, and Europe, and playing at festivals alongside acts including Death Cab for Cutie, Fleet Foxes, Elbow and others.
A number of tracks from ‘Simple Desire’ have already featured in prime time US, UK & Australian 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, ‘Hollywood Tonight’ has been heard on MTV's ‘The Hills’, and ‘Can You Hear Me’ on number 1 Australian show ‘Winners and Losers’.
‘Break the Spell’, the first single from ‘Simple Desire’ has also been featured on the ‘EA Games FIFA 12’ soundtrack.
