The Blackout Bio:

The hottest new rock act in the UK, the Blackout, released their addictive new album, The Best In Town, on June 9th via Epitaph. The Welsh six-piece will take the US by storm on the 2009 Warped Tour, where they will unleash their potent brew of massive rock riffs, soaring melodies and maniacal screams. Having honed their skills touring across Europe Japan and the US alongside bands like Bless the Fall, Alesana, The Used and Pierce the Veil, the Blackout were nominated by Kerrang! as Best British Newcomers. With the road ahead filled with nothing but sprees, festivals and rock shows, 2009 promises to be the year the Blackout intoxicates the world.

Featuring breakout hits like the blistering track "ShutTheFuckUppercut" and this summer's hottest anthemic sing-along "Save Our Selves (The Warning)" nothing can stop the Blackout's US invasion. Songs like "Top of the World" and "Children of the Night" highlight the bands tremendous songwriting and crushing abilities that remind listeners that the band isn't boasting when they call it The Best In Town, they're just stating a fact.
