Canvasback Music and Atlantic Records have announced the signing of Blaenavon. The Hampshire, England-based band will make their label debut with the new single, “My Bark Is Your Bite.” The track arrives at all DSPs and streaming services on October 3rd .
“My Bark Is Your Bite” precedes Blaenavon’s full-length debut album. Produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, The Orwells), the as-yet-untitled collection will arrive in spring 2017.
Blaenavon will play their first ever New York City live dates, on November 1st at Baby’s All Right and November 2nd at Berlin. Additional North American live dates will be announced soon. The NYC shows follow Blaenavon’s well-received visit earlier this year to Austin, TX’s South By Southwest (SXSW), with NME including the trio among its “Stars of SXSW 2016 In Beautiful Backstage Portraits” and Esquire naming the band one of the “12 Biggest Winners of SXSW 2016.”
Blaenavon is currently on a tour of their home country, culminating with their biggest headline show to date, set for October 14th at London’s Scala. The trio’s live shows have earned great ecstatic praise from the music press in recent months, with The Line of Best Fit applauding their “growth, intelligent writing and emphatic performance,” adding, “the only safe bet would be on their success.”
Blaenavon have headlined countless dates across the UK while also sharing stages with the likes of Foals, Bloc Party, Songhoy Blues, Alvvays, DIIV and Warpaint. The band have played an array of major festivals, including Glastonbury, Latitude and Reading & Leeds.
