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.
