Blaenavon have dropped their comeback tune, ‘Catatonic Skinbag’.
The song is the first taster from their second album ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’ - the follow-up to debut ‘That’s Your Lot’ - due for release later this year.
They’ve also a headline tour planned for May, following a one-off at Omeara in London on Wednesday, 23rd January, and a support tour with The Wombats that kicks off the following day.
“The song is about isolation,” says frontman Ben Gregory. “Cutting oneself off from the world to engage in fruitless sensual pleasures and pretending everything is ok. Watching fucking Netflix and drinking a bottle of wine when you should probably instead be in therapy. But there’s a way out. Art, friendship, love. You don’t have to be a catatonic skinbag. Lol.”

01 Dublin The Grand Social
02 Belfast McHugh's Basement Bar
04 Liverpool Sound City
05 Newcastle Hit The North
06 Sheffield Leadmill
08 Nottingham Rescue Rooms
