Former Oceansize frontman Mike Vennart has released a lyric promo for his track Retaliate.
It’s taken from his debut solo project The Demon Joke which is released on June 22 via Superball Music.
Vennart tells Rock Sound: “Retaliate is a big, dumb stomper rock tune. I wrote it for just bass and drums, then I asked Richard ‘Gambler’ Ingram to play the really perverted keyboard lines, then flung on the ridiculous and impossible guitar solo at the end.
“That solo is a real career highlight for me.”
Vennart released a video for Don’t Forget The Joker last month. He’ll play a run of summer dates, including appearances with his other project British Theatre:
July 10: Leeds Brudenell Games Room
July 11: 2000 Trees Festival, Cheltenham
Aug 19: Leicester Firebug – with British Theatre
Aug 20: Colchester Arts Centre – with British Theatre
Aug 21: ArcTangent, Bristol
