Baron Mantis Short Info

Formation:

The band Baron Mantis was formed in February of 2014 in Budapest by Davey (guitar/lead vocals) and Victor (drums/vocals) Mantis. Coming from different backgrounds in the rock genre these two young men quickly established their own unique sound and developed their sonic world utilizing the English language to convey their musical message simply and effectively to as large an audience as possible. Their stoner influenced pop-rock songs are incredibly passionate, powerful and don’t come knocking at the door, but simply kick the door in with a loud crash. Their message to the world is utterly positive: Live, love, rejoice and follow your heart - make your life a story of epic proportions and limitless possibilities. Use your mind to achieve your hearts desire, be the best person you can be.
Their intention is to take the enormous energy they manifest live on stage - to as many people as they can all around the world.

2014-2015:

Recording and mixing of their first album entitled vis-a-vis was completed by the end of 2014, from which 5 tracks were chosen to appear on their first release - the EP Lure. This was followed by the first video of the band in November 2015 for the song Patience.
This was published in several major online magazines and news portals. The video is a very short but fiery representation of a relationship gone sour.

Their awaited debut album was self-released on the 11th of December 2015 and was tagged ’the surprise debut of the year’ by Index.hu online news portal. The album consists of 16 tracks and is meant to display the immense energy that erupted upon the formation of the band.

The fall of 2015 brought numerous concerts all across Hungary, which allowed the lads to prove to audiences that a 2 piece band is most definitely a force to reckon with.
Audiences were blown away as Baron Mantis took the stage before bigger bands and left the beholders awestruck and charged up with joy for days to come.
The band went on to win the Pop-rock category in the most prestigious talent contest for bands in Hungary, Talentométer and left the finals with an abundance of awards.

2016:

The band received more opportunities to open for the well established Hungarian bands during the spring of 2016. They also gave an acoustic performance for the number 1 Hungarian radio Petőfi Rádió, with an assortment of musical guests, playing under the name of ’The Mantis Project’. To build on the buzz that was generating around the band they quickly recorded and released the single ’Nobody’, which debuted on Petőfi Rádió and was an instant hit with audiences and became one of their most anticipated songs at their concerts.

A couple of Hungarian summer festivals (SZIN, International Sidecar festival) gave the opportunity to the band to perform and test themselves outside of the club environment.
The band was able to successfully introduce themselves to a greater international audience at the SZIGET festival opening the Telekom Volt Stage at 3 in the afternoon.

In the fall of 2016, the band went on a tour in Hungary to visit the cities where they have a growing following and also hit cities they had never played before.
They closed the year with a concert on the 30th of December.

As the year came to a close the band received significant national funding from the Cseh Tamás Program for musicians and will be using these funds to record their follow up album, which they started recording at the beginning of February with reknown Hungarian producer Gábor Nóniusz

2017:

Plans are to have a single released during the spring and have the complete LP released in Autumn 2017.
The band is kicking off the concert circuit this year by supporting one of Hungary’s most successful alternative bands of the past 15 years, Hiperkarma.
The spring tour has a dozen dates and will be hitting all major clubs across Hungary.
The band has shot a second video for the song ’Enter the Baron’ (off their debut album Vis-á-Vis) in February of this year, along with another video for the single to be released in the Fall of 2017.

During the summer the band plans to perform at several Hungarian festivals and is going to embark on an album release tour in the last quarter of the year.
Several music videos are also in the pipeline and are to be shot during the year.

Most importantly the band is very keen on opening towards the international music scene and explore the possibilities outside of Hungary.
