Lead singer Ben Gregory announced as face of Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 campaign
Transgressive-signed teenagers Blaenavon are set to embark on a headline UK tour this spring.
Following their riotous headline show at London’s Lexington – which sold out weeks in advance – and a series of support dates with the likes of Foals, Bloc Party and The Sherlocks, the band will hit the van for a run of dates this May – including a show at all ages venue, Dingwalls. The boys are also pleased to announce that they will be performing their debut US shows at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas and have been awarded funding by the team at PRS.
Blaenavon are currently recording their much-anticipated debut album with Grammy-winning producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Bombay Bicycle Club, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Bjork), with the first single from the record premiering soon.
Furthermore, Burberry have revealed the band’s Ben Gregory as one of their faces for 2016. The 19 year old singer is currently featuring in the global Spring / Summer campaign for the fashion label.
