Because Blanks sold out all his shows in 2021, Blanks will extend his Nothing Lasts Forever And That’s OK EU tour with 18 shows in May and June 2022. During this tour he will surprise his fans with his old and new songs. This will be Blanks’ biggest tour so far. With his enthusiastic songs like What You Do To Me and Never Have I Ever, and his emotional songs like I’m Sorry Blanks will be able to show his diverse musical pallet on stages around Europe. Ticket sale starts on Friday, November 5.
Remember the song that played during that amazing summer with your friends? And the happy but melancholic way it makes you feel now? That’s what Blanks wants with his music. And with his debut album ‘Nothing Lasts Forever, And That’s OK’ which is set for release on October 29th, he’s ready to make you feel just that.
Starting out as a bedroom producer at his parental home, the 24-year-old songwriter is already the most promising indie-pop artist from the Netherlands. Traveling the world as the “overexcited music boy” he is, not even a pandemic could bring down his spirit. Blanks stayed optimistic as always and immediately wrote and released an uplifting quarantine song with quirky dance moves on top. He’s always looking for ways to connect with his fans and thanks to social media they are more engaged than ever! That makes Blanks part of the next wave of artists like Conan Grey, Troye Sivan, and Shawn Mendes., who were able to receive mainstream success thanks to their highly engaged online fanbases.
While playing around on Instagram, Blanks frequently asks his followers to contribute ideas during his songwriting process, resulting in instant bops like ‘Wave’, ‘Bittersweet’ and ‘Higher’. His YouTube channel “Music by Blanks” currently has over 1.3 million subscribers and expresses his unlimited love for music, e.g., during his “Blanks Invites” series which led to studio collaborations with Alfie Templeman, Dayglow, San Holo, and Sheppard.
