Blaenavon to support Oscar on his DIY Presents tour, unveil new ‘Destiny’s Mild’ track

The Transgressive indie-rockers will support on Oscar’s upcoming DIY Presents run of shows.

With their new ‘Miss World’ EP fast approaching, Blaenavon have jumped aboard the Oscar’s DIY Presents tour next month for a victory lap around the country. To celebrate, they’ve also released a new track from the EP, entitled ‘Destiny’s Mild’.

Buoyed by a surf-pop bounce, it sees the group fine-tune their penchant for huge melody and an individual attention to the finer details of indie-rock. It follows recent single ‘Hell Is My Head’ in previewing ‘Miss World’, which is released via Transgressive on October 30th.

The trio will hit the road with Oscar next month for a run of DIY Presents shows across the country - full dates for Blaenavon’s pam-packed autumn and winter are as follows. Stream ‘Destiny’s Mild’ below.
