Mike Vennart has announced he’ll release his latest Vennart album, ‘To Cure A Blizzard Upon A Plastic Sea’ on 14th September via his own Medium Format label. News of the record comes with lead single ‘Immortal Soldiers’, and a November headline tour which includes a night at London’s Dome.
“It’s about Mindfulness, Madness and Magic,” he says of the record. “The bulk of the ideas of the record came from a pretty rubbish Japanese toy from the 70s called an Omnichord. The sound of it isn’t really interesting, but it coughed out the chord sequences of my dreams, taking my songwriting to places there’s no way I could’ve ever done so alone. Some of the words and the grooves are in homage to my love of my adopted home of Manchester. One of the songs has a definite baggy vibe, albeit one through a filter of someone who loves Iron Maiden.”
Check out ‘Immortal Soldiers’ below.

19 Birmingham, Castle & Falcon
20 The Fleece, Bristol
22 London, Tufnell Park Dome
23 Manchester, The Deaf Institute
