Boston Manor have announced the details of ‘Poetry & Soil’, a virtual art show based around their latest album 'GLUE'.
The show comprises artworks by Benjamin Lieber - who created the ‘GLUE’ album cover, Polygon - whose worked on the video for ‘Liquid', production company Big Giant’s character work and storyboarding for the animated ‘Plasticine Dreams’ video and pictures by the band's American tour photographer Danny DeRusso.
There's also a short documentary on the creation of the record for you to watch.
The band have explained the purpose of the exhibition a little bit:
"We had planned initially to do this art show as a live event in London set over a weekend prior to the album release.
Due to Covid 19 this was not possible; instead we decided to recreate the show online. The show also features a 20 minute documentary "A Short Film About GLUE".
The film documents the year the band spent making the record. This show will be completely free but available for a limited time.”
You'll be wanting to head right HERE to check it out.
The band are also encouraging fans to send in their own art to be included in the exhibition. Any submissions, both band related and not, can be sent to [email protected].
'GLUE' is out now via Pure Noise Records.
