Blancmange are to release an instrumental album, which will initially only be available at the band’s forthcoming concerts.


Nil By Mouth was recorded by Neil Arthur, who is Blancmange’s only full-time member after Stephen Luscombe was forced to quit due to health problems. It will be available at Blancmange’s shows at London art gallery Red Gallery in Shoreditch on May 15-16, before going on general sale shortly after the band’s website.


Blancmange released their regular album Semi-Detached in March, their second since reforming for the Blanc Burn album in 2011. The shows at Red Gallery are their only scheduled ones for this year, having recently completed a tour with Heaven 17.
