Win tickets to see The Blackout live @ The Academy December 21!

Boisterous Welsh metal quartet REVOKER and Dublin based pop rock band Jodi Has a Hitlist will join THE BLACKOUT when theyplay the Academy on Saturday 17th,    December 2011. Tickets priced €19.50 are on sale now. This is an over 14s show – with strictly no alcohol served.

‘Hope is the preserve of the foolish and the brave, the light at the end of the tunnel and the ball and chain that leaves reality inescapable’. THE BLACKOUT have called their third album ‘Hope’, it was released it to rave reviews earlier this year. The Welsh pop-brusiers warned fans their album sounds exceptionally killer – at ear bleeding volume. After splitting with their last record label, the band made the latest album with producer Jason Perry (McFly, KIGH), they funded the album themselves and worked hard to ensure it was true representation of their sound. ‘Hope’ can definitely be described as the work of a band reenergised and ready to rock again!

The band signed with Cooking Vinyl (Prodigy, Marilyn Manson) on a worldwide deal at the beginning of 2011,  THE BLACKOUT are now looking forward to leaping to the next level with a label that shares their independent-minded philosophy and one which was enthusiastic about ‘Hope’ from the very beginning. THE BLACKOUT are set to release the Welsh wrath once again.

See the band perform live at the Academy, Saturday 17th December 2011. Tickets priced €19.50 on sale from all Ticketmaster outlets this Thursday from 9am. This is an over 14s show – strictly no alcohol served. Doors open at 5.00pm.
