BLANCK MASS / UK
Benjamin John Power (one half of Fuck Buttons) has been making music under the Blanck Mass moniker since 2010. In 2012, ”Sundowner” – the second track from the self-titled Blanck Mass debut – soundtracked the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, chosen by Underworld’s Rick Smith and performed by London’s Symphony Orchestra to 900 million people worldwide. Since then, Power has released two albums, 2015 ‘Dumb Flesh’ and 2017 ‘World Eater’ on Sacred Bones. ‘Animated Violence Mild’ (scheduled for August 16th, 2019) is Power’s fourth full-length as Blanck Mass, and three tracks have already been released as a teaser. ‘Animated Violence Mild’ was written throughout 2018, at Power’s studio just outside Edinburgh. These eight tracks are the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief. He will be in WOS accompanied by live visuals by Dan Tombs.
