BLANKET Unveil Acoustic Cover of Radiohead’s ‘No Surprises’

BLANKET Unveil Acoustic Cover of Radiohead’s ‘No Surprises’

BlanketBlackpool’s cinematic rock four-piece blanket reveal their stunning acoustic cover of Radiohead’sNo Surprises today.

“One of the first concerts I ever went to was see Radiohead on the ‘OK Computer’ tour at Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom”, explains guitarist Simon Morgan, “I was completely in awe of this band and the sounds they created. I’m pretty sure I was unable to string a coherent sentence together for a good couple of hours after the show, still rapt in what I had just experienced. To an 18 year old me, this was truly a moment I’ll remember for the rest of my life. Radiohead are such an important and influential band for all us guys in blanket, still creating awesome music when many bands have just fallen by the wayside, and we thought to pay a little tribute to them. Both recordings of these songs were the first take, too!

The track features on their digital Transfixion EP, out now on Music For Nations alongside their recent cover of the Deftones classic‘Knife Prty’.

Blanket wrap up their tour with Zeal & Ardor today, and will return to the road in March 2019 to support prog metallers Cellar Darling. Bassist Matt comments, “Going out on tour with a band like Cellar Darling is really exciting for us, we like to think of ourselves as a band that cross multiple genres, and want to get ourselves out to as many different scenes as possible, in front of people who might not have heard of us before”. Dates for the run are:

21st Mar – Studio, Sheffield

22nd Mar – Hammerfest, North Wales
23rd Mar – The Globe, Cardiff
24th Mar – Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
26th Mar – Waterfront Studio, Norwich
