Band page created in 2005.
Humanzi are an alternative indie rock quartet hailing from Dublin, Ireland. Band members are Shaun Mulrooney (guitar, keys, lead vocals); Colm Rutledge (Guitar, vocals); Gary Lonergan (Bass); and Brian Gallagher (Drums, vocals).
Humanzi combines guitars with dance beats and their sound shows influences spanning classic rock n roll, to Punk Rock and Dark electronic music. They cite as their main influences, Primal Scream, The Clash, Velvet Underground, Joy Division and The Stooges. Their dance background is informed by the likes of Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Peaches and LCD Soundsystem. The Humanzi signature sound is fraught and claustrophobic, and the themes of their tracks are often heavily politicized.
They released their double A side debut single on Fiction Records, entitled 'Fix the Cracks' on 7th November 2005. This was followed by 'Long Time Coming' single release in 13th February 2005. Their latest single, 'Diet, Pills & Magazines' coincides with their debut album release, 'Tremors' which was released on 24th July 2006.
Tremors was recorded in the latter half of 2005 and produced by Chris Vrenna Nine Inch Nails and Gareth Mannix and co-produced by the band.
To date, they have toured with Ian Brown, The Foo Fighters, Dirty Pretty Things, Battle and White Rose Movement
