The next Blanck Mass LP is due this summer

Sacred Bones Records has announced a new album from Blanck Mass.

Titled Animated Violence Mild, it is Fuck Buttons' Benjamin John Power's fourth solo album and comes two years on from his last LP, Wild Eater. The album is preceded by lead track 'House vs. House' which you can hear above.

The new album was written throughout 2018 at Power's studio just outside Edinburgh. The announcement of the album comes with an accompanying statement from Power: "In this post-industrial, post-enlightenment religion of ourselves, we have manifested a serpent of consumerism which now coils back upon us. It seduces us with our own bait as we betray the better instincts of our nature and the future of our own world. We throw ourselves out of our own garden. We poison ourselves to the edges of an endless sleep.

"I believe that many of us have willfully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the snake we birthed. Animated - brought to life by humankind. Violent - insurmountable and wild beyond our control. Mild - delicious."

You can pre-order Animated Violence Mild here ahead of its August 16 release date.
