Mannequin Pussy recently announced their new album Patience, due for release on June 21st through Epitaph. With the announcement came the blockbuster song 'Drunk II', and this week they follow it up with another scrappy anthem 'Who You Are'.

'Drunk II' saw singer Marisa Dabice showing no restraint in her opening up about personal issues, and on 'Who You Are' she shows the same kind of fierce openness - but this time it's positive energy directed to a beloved friend. "Who taught you to hate the way you are?" she asks concernedly, before powerfully asserting "If I were you there’s not a thing I would restart." She softly relates to her wounded friend, admitting she's hated herself in the mirror, but rallies to re-affirm her message of self-acceptance for her ally. Mannequin Pussy are sonically dynamic through this touching track, delicate in the opening section of comfort and confession, then shredding with barbed glee in the confident second half as Dabice proclaims "you don't have to change." At just under 3 minutes, Mannequin Pussy have stuffed an impressive amount of energy and emotion into 'Who You Are', further proving Patience to be one of the most anticipated new releases of the summer.

Mannequin Pussy's new album Patience is out on June 21st and can be pre-ordered here.
