THE BLANK TAPES announce new album, a European tour and release a new track, MATT ADAMS doesn’t do things by half! BEN ADLAM puts his shades on for SHINDIG!
“Look Into The Light” will be the 13th studio album released by The Blank Tapes. Thirteen albums in and the new ideas just seem to keep flowing for multi-instrumentalist Matt Adams, who’s baby The Blank Tapes are. There’s a heavier edge to this album with moments of pure guitar shredding neatly mixed with the ethereal surf psych grooves that are The Blank Tapes trademark.
Adams drafted Shaughnessy Starr of Frankie & The Witch Fingers and Hoover III on powerhouse drums, the grooving bass playing of Jason Cirimele of Guantanamo Baywatch and The Donkeys and Veronica Bianqui on airy backing vocals. The album was mixed by Matt Adams and Nathan Sabatino of Jim James & Dr. Dog. The album art was also drawn by Matt Adams.

“Look Into The Light” will be released on 12th October 2019 (Cassette Store Day) through Nomad Eel Records.
