Blaenavon share new single ‘Catatonic Skinbag’, announce May tour

The track features on the group’s forthcoming album, ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’.

Blaenavon are back! After announcing their second album with a heartfelt letter from frontman Ben Gregory and a one-off live date at London’s Omeara tomorrow, the band have shared brand new track ‘Catatonic Skinbag’.

“The song is about isolation,” explains Ben. “Cutting oneself off from the world to engage in fruitless sensual pleasures and pretending everything is ok. Watching fucking Netflix and drinking a bottle of wine when you should probably instead be in therapy. But there’s a way out. Art, friendship, love. You don’t have to be a catatonic skinbag. Lol.”

The new record will be the follow-up to 2017’s ‘That’s Your Lot’.

They’ll also be hitting the road proper in May, including sets at Liverpool Sound City and Newcastle’s Hit The North festivals in addition to headline dates.

01 Dublin, The Grand Social
02 Belfast, McHugh’s Basement Bar
04 Liverpool, Sound City
05 Newcastle, Hit The North
06 Sheffield, Leadmill
08 Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
09 Leicester, O2 Academy
11 Oxford, O2 Academy
12 Cardiff, The Globe
14 Plymouth, Junction
15 Southampton, The 1865
16 Brighton, The Haunt
18 Tunbridge Wells, Forum

Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday 25th January.
