Vennart Shares Feisty Space Rock Offering Sentientia From Upcoming Second Album

Monday, 06 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Mike Vennart, formerly of Oceansize and British Theatre, as well as a live guitarist for Biffy Clyro, will release his second album on September 14 through his own Medium Format label.

The second cut from 'To Cure A Blizzard Upon A Plastic Sea', Sentientia, is a guitar-focused, shred-heavy scorcher of a rock song with backing synths grounding everything. It comes accompanied by a live video of the band filmed in Salford.

Produced by Steve Durose and Vennart himself, the frontman said,

"This one’s a feisty, snappy little swine. Like a sort of space-rock thrash metal tune. The words are about a recurring nightmare I have where I’m eating a live baby animal. This stems from a night in Munich where the only thing on the menu was something young and dead. Anyway, this song is sung from the perspective of said baby animal. It’s the shortest song on the record but it sets its stall out pretty sharpish."

The first offering from the album, Immortal Soldiers, dropped in June along with the announcement of a UK headline November tour after a slot at ArcTanGent festival and surrounding warm up August shows.

Vennart Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Wed August 15 2018 - LEEDS Key Club

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
