Singer/rapper/songwriter/author/skater Manafest releases his second consecutive independent and ninth studio album, “Stones,” July 21 through The Fuel Music. His first “full-on” rock album in five years, “Stones” can be pre-ordered now through his website and has already sparked a Top 40 Billboard Mainstream Rock National Airplay chart hit with its title track. The album’s second single, ‘House of Cards,’ is on deck now at SiriusXM Octane and other radio outlets internationally. The lyric video for ‘House of Cards’ can be watched below.
For “Stones,” Manafest brought in long-time collaborator and Grammy Award-winning producer Adam Messinger (No Plan B, Magic!, Pitbull), Grammy-Award winning producer Seth Mosley (Skillet, We As Human) and, for the first time, producer and multi-instrumentalist Lenny Skolnik known for his work with Howard Benson on projects for P.O.D, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace and others. The resulting album is a window into struggles faced when rejection and the unexpected are experienced, while encouraging listeners to move past the barriers and to be more self-aware.
“Throughout the album, I explore how things are thrown in our path,” says Manafest. “I may face obstacles and judgements, but I’m not going to quit. A fighter never stops no matter what stones are thrown their way.”
