Our Latest Post
We're excited to tell our fans the great news!
June brings a new label to The Manamal Radio which is great news for you because new labels means new bands and new music for all you rockers out there. The new label addition has been in business for over twenty five years!
Perris Records is an American record label dedicated to heavy metal and in particular to subgenres like hair / pop metal , sleaze metal , AOR , and hard & heavy in general. The label was founded in the early nineties in Houston , Texas , United States by Tom Mathers . Perris was born when Mathers' band, Cherry St. , toured nationally without a label. So instead of waiting to find some record company, Mathers founded his own. Many bands that overcame the crisis period of the early nineties due to grunge , signed for Perris as well as new generations of more recent bands. The label has therefore become a reference for the "revival" of hair metal from the nineties to the present.
We are very excited to be part of Perris Records in the next chapter of the labels legacy!
