Blanck Mass announces new album 'Animated Violence Mild'

Following on from his recent remix album of Editor's 'Violence', dubbed 'The Blanck Mass Sessions', earlier this year, producer Benjamin John Power aka Blanck Mass has now announced his plans to release a new studio LP in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Animated Violence Mild' is his first collection of original material since 2017's 'World Eater', is being previewed by the new single 'House Vs. House', and is set to arrive on the 16th August via Sacred Bones.

Speaking on the record, the producer added, “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 wilfully 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."
