Just look at his face! Devastatingly, Man Mantis has suffered a “hideous genetic deformation that has left him with the body of a man and the face of a mantis,” but you can help him pay for an experimental procedure to help restore his human head by naming your own price (donation) towards his excellent new instrumental LP, Cities Without Houses over on his Bandcamp. Yeah, remember? US citizens actually have to PAY for their medical bills. Help an insect out.
In addition to donation via bandcamp, Mantis is working with kickstarter to raise funds for a limited vinyl release of Cities Without Houses. By incremental donation (kinda like the “Jump Rope for Heart” system), you can receive a whole bunch of “prizes,” from a copy of the LP itself to the holy grail: YOUR VERY OWN MANTIS MASK made by Mantis Man himself.
