Looking to give fans an in-depth look into their latest album Glue, UK act Boston Manor has just launched a special art show experience for their fans.
Initially planned as an in-person event pre-COVID, the band has now taken the show and moved it online and paired it with an extensive 18-minute making of short film.
Explaining the switch and touching on their online gallery ‘Poetry & Soil,’ the band collectively commented, “When we were planning the release of GLUE we had originally organised an art show that was going to take place over a weekend right before the album came out. It was going to be a free event that would double as a listening party. Obviously that couldn’t happen. Instead we made it virtual.”
The band added, “‘Poetry & Soil’ features the work of all of the creatives we have worked with over this album campaign (& some of the band’s own work), showcasing the work they have done with us as well as other projects. As well as that it features a 20 minute documentary ‘A short film about GLUE’ which follows the band throughout the year we spent writing & recording the record.”
Lastly the band concluded, “ALSO there is going to be a section dedicated to YOUR artwork. Submissions will be curated by us but it doesn’t have to be band related; it can be any art you’ve made that you would like to showcase. Email submissions to Submissions@FY1.co.”
