Debut Album Release!!!

Get ready!!! On April 24th, 2012 Blackout Mafia will release its debut album "Omertà." It will be available through itunes as well as bandcamp and reverbnation!!!

Hello 2012!

Hey everyone! A little late starting into the new year, but hope everyone had a great holiday. Lots of upcoming shows, news, and craziness to share. We kick off this year at O'Brien's pub in Allston with Sinister Grin, Accident Factory, and Chirality. I'm personally excited about this line-up; it's going to be a great show! Shortly after that, we have another show in March at Dusk in Rhode Island. Great bar and our first out of state show. Plus, in the very near future, we'll be announcing the release of our debut album with a working title "The Dark Season"! Stay tuned for that. We'll see you soon! GC

Thank you, Opium Fest!

We just had a great show in New Bedford at the New Wave Cafe for the 2011 Opium Fest. Four other bands joined the stage with us for a good cause and a good rocking time. Thanks so much for the support; we hope to make a return soon. We wanna also give a special thanks to those who put it all together and made it go smoothly. We can definitely appreciate that! We'll see you soon!

Madness at the Carnival!

BM Family, We just did our biggest show of the year and want to thank everyone who came out and supported us at the Carnival of Madness! We met a lot of cool new fans and bands that are passionate to the cause of bringing hard rock/metal to the masses. Big thanks to everyone on board who've made this happen for us; we truly appreciate it! More great shows to come in the next couple of months. Momentum is picking up for us and we're not slowing down anytime soon! Be sure to check back often as we'll add more shows to our calendar this month. Don't miss out! See you soon. -Geoff

We came, we saw, we dominated!

On behalf of the Blackout Mafia family, we want to reach out and thank everyone who came out last night and made our show a big success! We were all surprised how great the turnout was and we couldn't be happier. You guys are truly amazing! We did it for the troops, to celebrate their lives of bravery and sacrifice, and we're glad you were a part of something special. It means a lot to us. Lots of news to come in the near future, including new show dates, merch, and a potential Summer EP release! Let it be known that 2011 is the year of the Blackout! This is our passion, our life, and we couldn't have gotten this far without you. So thank you again and we'll see you soon!

All my best,

Geoff
