New Music Friday: Blanck Mass – Animated Violence Mild

Animated Violence Mild

The new Blanck Mass album Animated Violence Mild has been released today on New Music Friday. Have a listen below.

Benjamin John Power this week announced a full UK tour in November and early December after in-store gigs next week will help to push a record which Live4ever has described as ‘breathless and kaleidoscopic’:

“This is music which rejects the sterility of compromise, the perfect illustration of what’s possible being the eye of the storm is Creature/West Fuqua, the hell of our mass destruction given temporary relief by an achingly beautiful, harp-led look upwards towards the stars.”

“Perhaps in one way this briefest of renaissances is a nod back to the days of 2012, in which even if the final straws had already been drawn people were still subconsciously able to reject the straitjacket and remember why we’re all here. Animated Violence Mild is a record that feels it needs no centre because, seven years later, there’s none left to hold us.”
