Mattie Vant’s newly-reformed musical project returns to Birmingham this coming autumn on an eight-date UK tour
After a brief hiatus over 2017 and 2018 Mattie Vant decided to bounce back to action with a brand new line-up including Superfood’s Alice Costelloe on bass. Early 2019 saw the return of VANT with a trio of singles released and a small venue tour across the UK – including a show at Birmingham’s Hare and Hounds. The new material featured a different and much more varied sound that showcased a lot of psych and house influence which put a big spin on their usual “the end is nigh'” punk rock tunes.
Conceived in the Sky is the name of VANT’s impending sophomore album which is due for release on January 10.
Mattie Vant has described his new endeavour as an independent project since the departure with his former band back in 2017 but claims that he is very much not alone with the support from his fans he received over the last tour. 2020 onwards is looking to hold big things for VANT so it’s worth grabbing tickets while you can.
