Commercial Break

Blancmange are set to release a new album, Commercial Break on 17th September 2021. Co-produced by Benge and mixed at his Memetune Studios in Cornwall, it’s available to Pre-Order now on ltd edition white and pink vinyl and CD from the Official Store:

Blancmange – Expanded Mindset

Blancmange – Expanded Mindset will be released on 11th December. Order HERE 
The idea of a Blancmange album of extended mixes has been discussed for a few years now and finally here it is – a new, longer version of this year’s Mindset album.
Remixed and reworked by Neil Arthur and Benge over the last few weeks, this new Expanded edition also flips the running order to give it a fresh approach (part accident, part design and hopefully mind expanding!).
