Lifeforce has announced the signing of one of Germany's most exciting hardcore acts to their ever growing roster, THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT.
The band was formed from the remains of perished underground acts PAINT THE TOWN RED (Join the Teamplayer / Thorp Records) and FLYSWATTER (Eat the Beat / Roadrunner) in early 2006. Their unique version of melodic hardcore delivers a perfect balance of heavy guitar riffing, blaring screams, shouts and excellent singing vocals. Their songs are filled with creative melodic lead-guitars and vary from faster-paced tracks with heavy breakdowns to catchy mid-tempo-style tunes. THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT manage to strengthen this setup with great songwriting skills.
The band commented on their signing to Lifeforce Records: "We are more than happy that we are given the chance to work with an amazing record label that is able to push this band to the next level. Signing to Lifeforce Records reinforces us that all the hard work and dedication was not in vain. We also feel honored to now be a part of such an incredible roster of both, promising new and well established bands from all over the world. We are so much looking forward to releasing our debut album “Decisions” in September.”
In August 2006 the band released their debut EP entitled “Munich Angst” on Engineer Records which is about to be re-released through BASTARDIZED RECORDINGS in April 2007.

Both EPs will be released in a limited 2xCD-packaging.

The songs were recorded at Suiseidl Studios in Munich and mixed and mastered by K. Kohlmannslehner at Kohlekeller Studios. The album has guest-appearances by Geert van der Velde (ex-Shai Hulud / The Architect), Byron Davis (God Forbid) and Benni Buss (Flowing Tears). The artwork was once again created by Justin Kamerer (Angry Blue).
Germany's Paint The Town Red have officially disbanded. According to the band, "After our last tour and several band member changes, the road we were on became harsh and the thorns cut our feet and hands. After we arrived and went our separate ways some of us decided to stick with it. Chris, Nanouk and Walzel will be taking things to the next level and wiping the blood on their faces with a new band."
Formed in 2001, the group released material with Join The Team Player Records prior to signing with Thorp Records late last year.
