About Blaenavon

*First band on 7pm, early show curfew 9:45pm

Transgressive-signed teenagers Blaenavon have  unveiled ‘ Let’s  Pray’, the  second track from  their much-anticipated debut album with Grammy-winning producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic  Monkeys,  Adele,  Bombay  Bicycle  Club,  Catfish  &  The  Bottlemen, Bjork),  alongside  news  of  their  biggest  headline  show  to  date,  further  festival  dates, and a lengthy UK support tour.

‘Let’s  Pray’ is  a  massive,  emotive  and  bold  statement  of  intent  from  the  Hampshire three-piece  on  top  of  their  game.  Blaenavon’s  dark  romanticism  exudes  lonesome warmth  –  reminiscent  of  The  Smiths  and  The  Cure  –  and  self-assured,  mellifluous tendencies. Singer Ben Gregory says the following about the new single: “When the best songs have all already been written, order yourself a smile and a steak – equally as rare – chew with your mouth closed and your hands in your pockets and wait… Wait for sanity. She’ll settle up.”

‘Let’s  Pray’ and  previous  single ‘I  Will  Be  The  World’ are  the first  new  tracks  from Blaenavon  since  their  acclaimed  2015 “Miss  World” EP. ’I  Will  Be  The  World’ caught  the  attention  of  Zane  Lowe  at  this  year’s  SXSW,  who  convinced  label Transgressive to let him play  an unfinished  version of the track on his  Beats 1 show and  declared  them  “one  of  the  most  talked  about,  breakthrough  bands”  playing  the festival.

Furthermore, after a sell out run of shows at London’s Waiting Room. Lexington and Dingwalls,  Blaenavon  are  set  for  their  biggest  headline  performance  to  date  at  The Scala  on  October  14th.
