Blaenavon surprise release new collection 'demoitis'

After returning back in October to deliver their highly-anticipated new album 'Everything That Makes You Happy', Blaenavon managed to also fit in a surprise release before the end of 2019.

The new 12-track collection 'demoitis' consists of a number of home recordings from singer Ben Gregory, and made its way onto streaming services on Christmas Day.

Speaking about the new release, the frontman said, “’demoitis’ is a concept record about recovery and something of a companion piece to ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’. Whilst my second album is full of angsty ballads about a young man fearing he’s on the edge of sanity, ‘demoitis’ reflects on the rehabilitation process following a mental breakdown. Demoitis itself is a sensation so many artists can relate to - falling in love with the quirks and subtleties of something homely and imperfect. I felt it made most sense to release this record as a complete demo album in order to let the songwriting speak for itself and to show what can be created with so few tools in the modern age. the album ends with an ode to my future child and the wish to ensure they pursue the things that make them happy in their lives: for me it’s music. enjoy”
