Blackout

Brooklyn doom/sludge Blackout (which features onetime Cheeseburger guitarist Christian Gordy) play around their hometown a lot -- perhaps you've caught them here with Eyehategod, Acid King, Naam, or others. Their next show is an album release party happening April 11 at Union Pool with Hound (members of Ted Leo + the Pharamcists and None More Black) and Hasj. Tickets are on sale.

The album being celebrated at that show is self-titled and will be out next week (3/31) via Easy Rider Records. It's the kind of stuff that's somewhere between metal and straight rock, and it gets a little psychedelic too, thanks in part to their use of effected vocals. A full stream of the album premieres below...
