The Blinders

Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath

    The Blinders have announced their new album, 'Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath' via Modern Sky UK.

    The follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album, Columbia, released in 2018, the album explores existential despair, mental health and society’s ills in a time of planetary crisis, and is both a riposte to, and commentary on, the rise of populist ideology. Delivering a blistering collection of powerful tracks, Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath is imbued with the visceral energy of IDLES, the twisted melodies of solo-era Lennon and the darkness of the Bad Seeds.

    In the shadow of Brexit and the climate crisis, The Blinders return with their unique brand of outspoken anthemicism and a sensational album to rouse awareness and inject vital energy into a bleak 2020. Combined with their blistering live energy, get ready for The Blinders to accelerate furiously into the limelight.

    Live At The Ritz

      The Blinders: Live at The Ritz

      Exclusive live recording of The Blinders from the Ritz Manchester on a limited edition double LP.


      Doncaster bred and Manchester based, The Blinders are Thomas Haywood (guitar, vocals, word), Charlie McGough (bass guitar), Matthew Neale (drums, backing vocals). Influenced as much by the daily news as music, their impact, even at this early stage, cannot be over stated.

      Out 3rd May, ‘L’etat C’est Moi’ is the new single from Manchester based trio The Blinders and the second track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album. Described by the band as “A self-proclaimed war-dance told by the Idiot King himself. The first-person perspective of a madman, and his obsessive fantasies for power over all, and insolence from none.” The quote is attributed to Louis XIV declaring “I am the state” at the end of the 18th century.

      The track is the follow up to ‘Gotta Get Through’ which has been featured heavily on 6 Music (they played their first session for the station last week on Steve Lamacq’s show who described them as "the fastest emerging UK band at the moment") and hit the number 1 slot on Amazing Radio. The band have been playing several shows since the start of the year including many sold out dates. The have a busy summer planned live with headline shows in Manchester and London and festivals, many more of which are to be announced.

      The track was produced by Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton and is released on Modern Sky UK.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Manchester's Blinders bring the classic rock vibes with their debut outing, Columbia. Brimming with Arctic Monkeys swagger but imbued with a subtle psychedelic edge and semi-spoken lyrical fire, these young upstarts have set a great precedent for things to come. In the meantime, this should definitely sit well in your collection.
