Beige Banquet Announce New LP 'Ornamental Hermit', Air Title Track

London art punk/post punk band Beige Banquet have announced the release of their second studio album ‘Ornamental Hermit‘, and have aired the record’s title track.

Beige Banquet are a five-piece playing a bleak yet high-powered style of dark punk. Underpinned by a propulsive and motorik rhythm section, they combine robotic and percussive vocal deliveries with industrial textures and abrasive guitars to create frantic and driving sound.

Produced by Beige Banquet with the help of engineer Matt Green (Sniffany & The Nits, Artefact, Joanna Gruesome) at Head Cold Studios and mixed and mastered by David Forcier (Civic), the 10-track record will be out on the 13th March 2024. Pre-order your copy here.

Combining layers of noise and bursts of saturated percussion, with a driving rhythm section, ‘Ornamental Hermit’ features a rich and more dynamic sound and captures the raw power of the Beige Banquet live show for the first time.
