Vennart:  'Build Us A Rocket Then' live video launched
Ex-Oceansize frontman and current Biffy Clyro touring guitarist Mike Vennart released his debut solo album titled 'The Demon Joke' in June, and recently announced a UK headline tour for November. Before that though, he will play Arctangent Festival as well as two warm-up shows. To celebrate, a live video recorded in Manchester earlier this year has been launched. You can check out Mike and the band (featuring former Oceansize members Steve Durose & Richard 'Gambler' Ingram as well as Ginger Wildheart alumni Denzel) performing the Oceansize track 'Build Us A Rocket Then' here:
