Comprised of members of Earthtone9, Pitchshifter, and Consumed, the band have defied comparisons to their day jobs and are on a quick course to becoming a household name in the U.K. indie scene, alongside the likes of Hundred Reasons, among others.
Formed in premise in the summer of 2000 while Mark Clayden and Matt Grundy were touring America in Pitchshifter (Clayden is a charter member of 'Shifter, and Grundy did a brief but memorable stint as a touring guitarist during 2000), the genesis for the band really didn't happen until the end of the following year, when Karl Middleton (ex-Earthtone9), Chris Billam and Will Burchell (both of Consumed) came into the fold.
The sound is a almost perfect blend of the electronic soundscaping with Earthtone9's intense and progressive melodies.
The group have only released one album to date and two ep's.
Shortly after signing to Golf in 2004 the band ground to a halt as other commitments became priority, both Clayden and Middleton taking up residency as tutors at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music. Since the disbandment of The Blueprint, Middleton has gone on to work on another slow burning project "Twin Zero" as well as all the members having some form of involvment with the collective concept that spawned This Is Menace.
