The Blackout

A rocktastic six piece hailing from South Wales who formed three years ago "out of bordem". Consists of co-vocalists Gavin Butler and Sean Smith, guitarists James Davies and Matthew Davies, bassist Rhys Lewis and drummer Gareth Lawrence. Their new six-track mini-album is due for release on October 23rd.

What's The Deal?
With influences ranging from Glassjaw, Pantera and Metallica right through to Lil John and Dr. Dre, they're anything but tame. Expect nothing less than rip-roaring guitars, lethal beats with a well rehearsed live set that will blow your brains out.

Will I Like It?
These boys are far more than just plain screamo. Catchy and able to write 'proper songs', they deserve to be given a chance purely because of the prowess they exhibit on stage. If you're a fan of Lostprophets et al, you'll love this.
