Blanket Announce ‘Blue Eyes’ EP + Drop New Single and Music Video

Blanket is a post-rock band from Blackpool, UK, known for their powerful and atmospheric soundscapes. Drawing inspiration from bands such as Foo Fighters, Deftones, and Failure, they create music that is both emotionally charged and technically impressive.

Formed in Blackpool, Blanket began as a solo project by vocalist and guitarist Bobby Pook. As the project grew, Pook brought in other musicians to help develop the sound and eventually formed a full band lineup.

Today, they have announced the upcoming release of their new EP, ‘Blue Eyes’, via Church Road Records. As well as releasing the title track from the EP, alongside a video.

In the bands words:

This EP is kind of a transition record for us as we head towards a hopefully a new record some time in the next year. There has been an evolution of our sound and approach to songwriting, and a new lineup, with our new drummer Lucas Fletcher, and we see ‘Blue Eyes’ as an introduction to the composite of our diverse influences, and representative of blanket in 2023. We’re also including some never before released songs including our own interpretation of some of the music we’ve been influenced by including a Radiohead cover we worked on with our friends in Palm Reader, a cover of John Murphy’s ‘In the House, In a Heartbeat’ from 28 Days Later, and an acoustic version of Post Malone’s ‘I Fall Apart’.
