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

Mon 14 Dec 2015
One of the abiding clichés in contemporary music is the the ageing ‘dinosaur’. You can picture them now: the middle-aged vocalist of a progressive rock band who takes a decidedly more mainstream pop route for their solo career. Phil Collins is the most obvious example, but Rush’s Geddy Lee and Yes’ Jon Anderson have also occupied shallower waters when going it alone.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.

Fri 14 Dec 2018
td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
