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. ‘Hope’, the new album by Welsh pop-bruisers The Blackout, is just that – except it sounds killer at ear-bleeding volume.

“The title came up a lot when we were looking through the lyrics,” says Sean Smith, “and we saw the recurring theme of the double meaning.”

“It’s a strong emotion,” agrees Gavin Butler, “because the word itself has a sadness to it. But the album is about pushing forward and keeping your head high.”

‘Hope’, produced by Jason Perry (McFly, KIGH) is the work of a band re-energised. Having taken matters into their own hands and enlisting the help of the ‘Riot Squad’, the band funded the recording of this, their third album via Pledge which in turn opened new doors in terms of labels.

Having signed with Cooking Vinyl (Prodigy, Marilyn Manson) on a worldwide deal at the beginning of 2011, The Blackout are 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.

HOPE tracklisting is as follows:


1. AMBITION IS CRITICAL
2. NEVER BY YOUR SIDE
3. HIGHER & HIGHER (featuring Hyro Da Hero)
4. HOPE (SCREAM IT OUT LOUD)
5. THIS IS OUR TIME
6. THE LAST GOODBYE
7. NO MORE WAIITNG
8. THE DEVIL INSIDE
9. YOU’RE NOT ALONE
10. KEEP ON MOVING
11. THE STORM


The Blackout will be unleashing the Welsh wrath once more on a fifteen-date UK tour. Supports slots, both from the US come in the shape of Fueled By Ramens The Swellers and hip hops new boy on the UK circuit- Hyro Da Hero who also appears on Higher & Higher due for release 28th March. The track will feature on Zane Lowes BBC radio 1 show tonight between 7pm – 9pm as his Hottest Track In The World.

A FREE exclusive track entitled ‘Ambition Is Critical’ is available to download from the bands website, Theblackout.net now.
