Blancmange "Mindset" Tour
Saturday 23rd May 2020
Venue: Gloucester Guildhall, 23 Eastgate Street, Gloucester GL1 1NS
British electronic band Blancmange return to the live circuit with a new tour, “Mindset”. The synth pop band Blancmange first broke through in the early 80s with their mix of synthesizers and surrealism, fused in groundbreaking singles suchas 'Feel Me', 'Living On The Ceiling', 'Blind Vision' and 'Don't Tell Me'. The epic synthpop of 'Waves' and a cover of Abba's 'The Day Before You Came' illustrated a band who were always willing to change and adapt new styleswithin their electronic framework.
Currently Blancmange can be heard in everything from La Roux to LCD Sound System to Hot Chip. Alongside their contemporaries - The Human League, Magazine, Depeche Mode and Soft Cell - Blancmange are now being recognized as true Electro-Pop trail blazing pioneers. Faithless recently covered the band’s dance floor classic “Feel Me”, La Roux have included the Blancmange B-side “What’s Your Problem” on their “Side tracked” compilation with sleeve notes proclaiming“ …the Blue Print for Hot Chip”. Since Blancmange’s Stephen Luscombe was forced by illness to stop touring or recording after 2011’s Blanc Burn, the band’s evolution has continued with Arthur at the helm and has been reaching new audiences within the dance music scene from collaborations with Kincaid, John Grant, Disco Halal to forthcoming remixes from Honey Dijon and Roman Flugel which will be released on London Records.
Their new album “Mindset” will be released on Friday 22nd May through Blank Check Records.
"Listening to Blancmange Obsessively. Probably the most under-ratedelectronic act of all time.” - Moby
"Blancmange have been a part of the soundtrack to my life ever since'Happy Families' was released.” - John Grant
