Blackout Announces New Album "We Are Here"

NYC psychedelic doom trio Blackout is pleased to announce the release of the "We Are Here" debut. The album will be released independently on October 25th, 2013.

Comments the band in a collective statement: "We are really excited to get this record out. We're not a methodical band and our biggest hope was that the record sounded like us in the jam room... heavy, slow, and drunk. So that's exactly what we did... drank lots of beer and let Rob do his thing. The whole session was pretty blurry but we're psyched with the results."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Indian
2. Amnesia
3. Smoker
4. Columbus
5. Anchor
6. Seven

The following press release was issued about the band:

"With food, beer and America at the forefront, it only makes sense guitar player/vocalist Christian Gordy and drummer Taryn Waldman would meet at Gordy's 2011 July 4th cookout in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Waldman, a former Hooter's waitress turned big time commercial film editor, and Gordy, a one-legged bartender/artist/BBQ enthusiast were an oddball couple for NY's heavily-styled metal scene. The duo began rapidly banging out monolithic snail-paced riffs that could party as much as they could crush. Blackout - referring to blackout drunk, the absence of light, or a mobster hit on an entire family - was the only appropriate title for the band.

"With a three-song demo recorded at the now defunct Headgear Studios in the bag, Waldman set out on the task of stalking and acquiring drum wizard Justin Sherrel for the bass position. The sound filled out and quickly grew like Chuck Berry's mustache. Now with Sherrel's nitty-gritty, rhythm-heavy mud beneath an electrical tide of riffs and explosions, the mighty river of sludge was primed to lurch forward."
