Preview: The Blackout

King Tut’s, Sunday January 20th

The Blackout are back once again, headlining their own UK tour with support from Sonic Boom Six and Proxies.  The tour, which sees them play Glasgow’s King Tuts on Sunday 20th January, coincides with the launch of their next single ‘Running Scared’ from their fourth album Start the Party, which is released on the 21st January.  THE BLACKOUT PARTY PROMO (2)

Notorious for their boisterous live performances and a real personality on stage – the band describe themselves as a concoction of ‘Beastie Boys meets Andrew W.K. meets Dirty Sanchez’, the six-piece from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales certainly know how to put on a show. Their mix of high-energy pop-punk and punchy riffs has seen their last two albums – Best in Town and Hope –  warmly received by music critics and their latest effort looks likely to do the same, with ‘Start the Party’ making it onto Radio 1’s B List.
When you combine the boys’ enthusiastic stage presence with a venue such as Glasgow’s famous King Tuts you begin to realise that the 20th January will be no ordinary Sunday evening! Don’t miss out.
