Biography

Die Mannequin is a / trio from Toronto, Ontario, Canada fronted by 24-year-old guitar player and singer Care Failure (born Caroline Kawa). They played the “Next Big Thing” Stage at Edgefest 1 in 2006, have toured across Eastern Canada several times on their own as well as opening for Buckcherry on their Canadian tour. They also opened for Guns N’ Roses on the Canadian dates of their 2006 North American Tour. In 2009, they toured across Canada with Marilyn Manson.

Rising from the ashes of Failure’s first four-piece band “The Bloody Mannequins”, Die Mannequin started in the spring of 2006 when Failure recorded her first EP, How To Kill/Cordless Recordings on which she sang and played bass and guitar because she didn’t have a permanent band at that time. Death from Above 1979’s Jesse F. Keeler took care of the drum duties as well as production. The E.P. featured four songs and was produced by Keeler and partner Al-P from MSTRKRFT.

Care later hired two of her long time friends, Ethan Deth (Kill Cheerleader, and later Crystal Castles) and Ghostwolf (born Pat. M), to play bass and drums. Ethan was quickly replaced by Anthony Bleed (who had been Kill Cheerleader’s singer/guitarist) on bass. Managed by Shull Management, Die Mannequin signed with EMI Publishing in the summer of 2006, and began their own record label, How To Kill Music which is distributed by Warner Music Canada.

Die Mannequin’s second EP titled Slaughter Daughter was released in 2007. The band released a video for the first single “Do It Or Die” (produced by Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent) which has air play on and .

Unicorn Steak was released in 2008, which provides a compilation of How To Kill and Slaughter Daughter plus two additional tracks—”empty’s promise” and “Hand In Hand”.

Their latest release is Fino + Bleed, which came out on September 8, 2009. Fino + Bleed includes 12 tracks, but those lucky enough to have grabbed the limited edition version also got an hour long documentary, “The Rawside of…Die Mannequin,” which was nominated for two Gemini Awards.
