Blaenavon have debuted two new tracks, 'I Want You' and 'Fucking Up My Friends'

Blaenavon have debuted two new tracks from their new album, 'Everything That Makes You Happy', which is set to drop this Friday, 25th October, on Transgressive Records.

After announcing the record this morning (Monday 21st October), the band debuted 'I Want You' on Zane Lowe's Beats1 show, before premiering 'Fucking Up My Friends' with Phil Taggart, sitting in for Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 show later this evening.

Speaking about the he new album, frontman Ben Gregory explains:

"Everything That Makes You Happy. I couldn’t be prouder for you all to hear this album: an optimistic response to a difficult time. It made sense with the record’s impending release to touch base with you again and explain what’s been happening in our world.

"I’ve been very open regarding my mental health, and earlier this year things once more took a turn for the worst. In an industry so challenging, I pushed myself too hard and relapsed, returning to the hospital for a short time. I know many of you have really been struggling with your mental health, but I can promise you that time heals all and everything WILL be alright. The good news is the music hasn’t stopped flowing and we won’t make you wait another two and a half years to hear more. The support from you all throughout everything has been so warm and I’m honoured to have you guys as fans and friends.

"I want to make this band one you cherish forever, I want to thank my family for being such incredible rocks through all this trauma and I want to thank you for believing in this band as much as I do.

"Breathe this album in deeply - it really is one of a kind and from a very special place."

You can check out both 'I Want You' and 'Fucking Up My Friends' below.
