Blanketman20210811 DIY POST-PUNK
We’re delighted to be welcoming sardonic post-punks Blanketman to Birkenhead this autumn, a new band who sweat and toil in Manchester. A band with both style and substance in abundance, Blanketman aren’t willing to limit these songs to just the north-west anymore – they’re taking you with them.
Tickets on sale Friday 19th March, 11am.
Over the last year or two the band have been spearheading a burgeoning scene locally and have gigged extensively throughout the city, performing their original brand of restless-legged post-punk, served with a sharper, more sardonic pop edge than many of their more po-faced peers.
Having started to make waves nationally with a string of festival appearances and Radio 1 plays in 2019 and 2020, the band released their debut single Taking You With Me via PIAS in March 2020. The DIY aesthetics of the video sit side-by-side with the DIY ethics of a band whose most recent show, played a few days before the pandemic was announced, sold out weeks in advance and saw them perform in front of a sold-out home crowd in one of the last shows played in the city.
Further announcements around support acts to come. Tickets on sale Friday 19th March at 11am.
