“Need your daily fix of rock that recalls the great alt and grunge acts of the ’90s? Blown is here and there’s a reason why they’ve got that ’90s sound that may soon be a refreshing reprieve from copious electronics. It has been 16 years since Kurt Cobain died… is it time for a grunge revival? Ray Woods and Rain Forest Records is set to release it’s latest new band. This band is a group of five guys that have pounded the Portland streets since the early ’90s. The album is Slow Burn and it’s ready for release on Rain Forest Records in January 2011. ”

“Blown swept up in whirlwind of excitement Two years of hard work are paying off for the Vancouver band Blown. The band’s song “Hit Em Hard” is on the “Washington Rockers 2010” album, recently released by Esente Music Group as part of a drunk driving prevention campaign. Guitarist Rich Cornelison said having a song on the CD is a great promotion opportunity, but it also means a lot to the band members. “We have lost several friends over the years to drunk drivers,” he said. “We are always promoting not to drink and drive at our shows. It is easier to call a cab than it is to lose your life or take someone else’s life.”The band will tour the Northwest in the spring and then the rest of the U.S. in the summer to promote its first CD, scheduled for release by Rainforest Records in January of 2011.”

“Their sound is heavy,textured,and vigorous. It's as if Rob Zombie and Tool formed some supergroup in the blue-collar depths of Vancouver, WA. This is truly motivating rock. More importantly, it makes you feel more badass than you really are. It makes you want to smoke more, drink more, and drive really fast. I know you like it already.”

“BLOWN brought in one of the largest crowds to Irishtown Pub with the help of Dear Assassin and Another Fine Crisis.The next Blown show will be Feb. 5th, 2010”
