‘Destiny’s Mild’ showcases Blaenavon as one of the UK’s genuinely special bands and reflects the meticulous intelligence and ambition of these masterful writers. It follows recent track ‘Hell is my Head’, which has become an instant fan favourite, opening their live shows and receiving sweeping support from BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Absolute and Amazing Radio.

Following a moshpit-infused, sell-out headline show at London’s Waiting Room as well as news of support dates with The Districts, Songhoy Blues and Palace, Blaenavon also announce a second headline London show at The Lexington on 4th February, plus a festival set at By The Sea with Foals. In addition, they will be taking to the road alongside Oscar for a five-night run as part of DIY Presents.

Released on Transgressive imprint paradYse two years ago, 'Into The Night' and 'Denim Patches' - the debut from Hampshire's Blaenavon - marked the teenage band out as one to watch. Before hitting legal drinking age, the boys played a series of sold out shows - including a more-than-memorable all ages gig at London’s Trinity Centre - and followed up with their debut EP KOSO which enjoyed support across BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, plus nods from NME, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit, Wonderland, Rolling Stone and Clash.
