Vennart share brand new track Spider Bones


Vennart have released a stream of their new single Spider Bones.

It’s the second track taken from the band’s upcoming album To Cure A Blizzard Upon A Plastic Sea and follows Sentientia, which arrived earlier this month.

Mike Vennart says: “Spider Bones is one of the most euphoric tunes I’ve ever done. I don’t think I’ve ever done anything so obviously ‘funky’ which is definitely dangerous territory for me. 

“The drums are set to ‘Madchester’ while the rest of the band rocks the fuck out, albeit in the usual woozy, wonky kind of way. The bassline was an absolute bitch to play so I asked Steve Harris from Iron Maiden but he was too busy. Yes, really.”

Vennart is joined on the record by his former Oceansize bandmates Steve Durose and Richard ‘Gambler’ Ingram, along with drummer Denzel, with To Cure A Blizzard Upon A Plastic Sea launching on September 14 via Medium Format.

Vennart played at last weekend’s ArcTanGent festival and have further live UK shows planned for November with support provided by Pijn.
