Blanck Mass Maps Out North American Tour
Published Jul 16, 2015Fuck Buttons member Benjamin John Power recently issued a new album as Blanck Mass, and now he's planning to take Dumb Flesh on the road. His schedule now includes a North American late-summer leg.
The stint in our continent is a fairly short one, as it's condensed into barely more than a week in the first half of September. This includes a few U.S. stops, plus Canadian dates in Montreal on September 8 and Toronto on September 9. The North American tour is bookended by jaunts in Western Europe. See the full schedule below.
Below the itinerary, hear a newly unveiled official remix of the Dumb Flesh cut "Dead Format" from Scottish electronic pair Dalhouse. This remix strips away the ominous noise and urgent percussion and turns the tune into a creepily beautiful, horror-style soundscape.
In other news, Blanck Mass has curated a new score for the 2013 film The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears. This will be out through Death Waltz on July 24.
