Blanck Mass (the solo project of Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power) is releasing a new album, Animated Violence Mild, on August 16 via Sacred Bones. Now he has shared another song from the album, “No Dice.” He has also announced some North American tour dates. Listen to the song below, followed by the tour dates.

Power had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘No Dice’ is about denial. It’s the voice in the back of your head stopping you from moving forward, the separation between your head and your heart.”

Previously Blanck Mass shared the album’s first single, “House vs. House” (which was one of our Songs of the Week).

Power had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “I believe that many of us have willfully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the snake we birthed. Animated - brought to life by humankind. Violent - insurmountable and wild beyond our control. Mild - delicious.”

Animated Violence Mild is the follow-up to 2015’s Dumb Flesh and 2017’s World Eater. British five-piece Editors also recently released The Blanck Mass Sessions, which was a new version of their 2018 album Violence, a more electronic, version of the album featuring the original production work on the songs done by Blanck Mass.
