Blackout 101 is a young alternative Rock/Punk band hailing from the suburbs of Los Angeles, CA. Drawing influence from bands such as The Arctic Monkeys, Green Day, and The Bravery amongst others, the band’s sound is constantly progressing and the best way to experience the band in its true form is in a live setting. The self released EP “A Work In Progress” from late 2008 has earned the band many fans via myspace streaming, live concerts, interviews, word of mouth, etc. Expect their debut album to be released early 2011.
Here are a couple songs that will be on the upcoming album (sorry tracks aren’t mastered yet for downloading).
