VIDEO NEWS: blanket Release Music Video For New Single ‘Romance’
blanket have released a music video for their new single Romance featuring GosT, taken from their forthcoming album Modern Escapism.
Discussing the single, the band say: “Taking influence from metal and post-hardcore, ‘Romance’ is one of the heavier tracks on the album, and it’s also one of our favourites to play live. It is a song about obsession, about people being so obsessed with the lives of others, that they create a faux reality, inserting themselves into the lives they are preoccupied with and jealous of.”
The track features synth-wave producer GosT and the band say of the collaboration: “We wanted to find someone with a haunting scream to guest on the track, and all agreed on GosT to add his death-metal-meets-dark-synth-wave approach, and make ‘Romance’ a complete and more realised piece. Working with GosT was super straightforward too, we did everything remotely which has been the case with almost anything in the past year anyway, so we were used to it. We sent him the project and he sent us audio of his performance, and it was perfect on the first try. We couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out, and we hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.”
Modern Escapism is set for release on 8th October via Music for Nations, available to pre-order now.
blanket will be performing two album release shows in November, see them at the following dates:
Wed 17th – LONDON – Shacklewell Arms
Sat 20th – MANCHESTER – Night People
