Panic Shack have announced their debut EP.

The six-track 'Baby Shack' will arrive on April 8 via Brace Yourself Records. It was recorded by Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard frontman Tom Rees at Rat Trap Studios in Cardiff and will feature the previously released singles Who's Got My Lighter?, Jiu Jits You and I Don't Really Like It, alongside new tracks Baby, The Ick and Mannequin Man.

The latter has been shared alongside news of the EP and is a high energy, dynamic punk cut. The band said:

"'Mannequin Man' is a song we wrote about a guy we met in London who works as a literal, real-life mannequin. We were so impressed by his mannequin impersonation that we wrote the song about him on the megabus home the next day. Contrary to popular belief there is no deeper meaning to MM although you can take from the lyrics what you will.

"The video was filmed during the height of Covid so unfortunately we couldn’t get to London and decided a green screen was the next best thing. Concept-wise, we picked a theme and ran with it (no pun intended) doing what we do best (punching and shouting) in front of a camera. It was shot in about an hour and edited by our good friend Ren Faulkner all the way back in March 2021. A slight problem we’ve come to realise is that we all change our hairstyles so frequently we look unrecognisable. But will we stop? No."

Panic Shack will open for Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard at Scala in London on March 10. They also have festival slots lined up at Wales Goes Pop! and Tredfest.
