– Sacred Bones to reissue self-titled debut
album on Record Store Day (April 18th)
– On tour now!
Blanck Mass, the solo project of Benjamin John Power, is re-issuing the long out-of-print 2011 debut album ‘Blanck Mass’ via Sacred Bones Records. The deluxe double LP comes out on Record Store Day (April 18) in the UK on exclusive green-and-blue starburst vinyl, and on April 24 in the rest of the world.
The original press release for the album called it “a collection of tracks loosely themed around cerebral hypoxia and the beautiful complexity of the natural world…An interstellar journey that defies classification, revealing itself further and further with each listen; offering more with each visit.”
Power went on to reflect on the album at the time: “I do like the fact that this album represents a pretty clear image of myself, that which I am aware of and that which might be controlled by some other type of subconscious guidance.”
“Sundowner,” the second song on the album, achieved notoriety in 2012 when it was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra during the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, reaching over 900 million people worldwide.
