Blanck Mass unveils new single 'Love Is A Parasite'

With his eagerly awaited new album arriving in just a couple of weeks, Blanck Mass aka producer Benjamin John Power has now unveiled another cut taken from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Love Is A Parasite' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'House vs. House' and 'No Dice' in previewing his fourth LP 'Animated Violence Mild', which is set to drop on the 16th August via Sacred Bones.

The new cut is also accompanied by a video directed by Craig Murray, who has previously made videos for Converge and Mogwai. "I wanted to speak to Craig Murray about making the ‘...Parasite' video as his work definitely bridges that gap between the grotesque and the beautiful that I am so keen on", explains Power. "Presenting the darker theme of global mass consumerism whilst poking fun at the '80s and starring a Drag Queen overseeing chaos wasn't going to be an easy task but he nailed it."

Murray added, "It was great to be asked by Ben to work on this which instantly led us to bizarrely mirrored ideas… I decided to set the film in 1983 as a nod to Cronenberg and in order to do that everything from the costumes to the shooting and post production needed to fit. I have a deep nostalgia with this time period and its video formats, so to honour it we shot on a transmission feed which we glitched by plugging and unplugging the cable."
