Man on Earth

Man on Earth on Myspace

All Music Guide once described Man On Earth's sound as "melodic, post-Britpop sensibility with sharper-edged American guitar muscle, then tops it off with thoughtful lyrics. Surprisingly mature and far-reaching, the band is really too eclectic to simplify with easy comparisons."

After a number of successful shows at NYC's famous CBGB's the band was featured in Current TV's documentary special on the legendary club. As further spokesmen for the NYC music scene, the band was featured on FUSE TV for its participation in the Virgin / Fuse TV sponsored Brit Bus Tour. Music from the first album began appearing on thousands of Independent Podcasts and the much praised U.K. animated video for 'Come in Closer' received over 100,000 plays through manonearth.com including spins on Canada's MUCH MUSIC's Groundbreaking video show the Wedge. In Spring of 2006 the band released 'the Man On Earth EP'.

The lead track 'It feels like...' saw over 40,000 plays in four months on myspace and appeared as the theme song in 2005's Indy cult classic movie 'klayworld: off the table'. The film pushed legal downloads of the soundtrack way past 35,000 copies in just 3 months. The Man On Earth EP also features a guest appearance by Stephen Pearcy from the multi-platinum 80's metal band RATT on the eclectic rock track 'So you're the genius behind this?' The story was shortly after featured in Metal Edge magazine. The band is currenlty finishing their new album "Mass Produced Popular Opinion" with top major label Producer / Mixer Ken Lewis whose credits include 6 Grammy's, 38 Gold and Platinum albums / singles and 19 1 albums and singles through his work with a wide array of artists from John Legend, The Beastie Boys, Lenny Kravitz and Soul Asylum to Kanye West, Jay-Z and Usher among many others.

The band also just released their new video "Hold Your Breathe and Brace for the Crash" where they applied a guerrilla technique to locations around NYC without any permits; the Brooklyn Bridge, Union Square, meatpacking district, Times Square, and a rooftop. The concept was to simply let the cameras roll and capture the moment. Watch the video at their website!
