A three-piece act consisting of Jason Firebaugh - guitar & amp; lead vocals, Gary Warren- bass & vocals, Matt Jones - drums & amp; vocals and noticeably influenced by bands like Screeching Weasel, The Queers, NOFX, & Face To Face; The Guilford Blckouts mean to do some serious business in the world of punk rock and have clearly kicked the front door in with this release.
Easy to follow lyrics are spouted from a throat that must have once belonged to a drunken Irishman - maybe Welshman, both celebrated drinkers!
To me personally this is a great kick back and chill out album it's not too busy and not too sedate, perfect for hanging with buds and knocking back a whiskey or eight while doing your social groove thing.
I dig the hell out of this release and will enjoy it for years to come.
We've Been Sent Here to Destroy You is a well written, well played album that deserves a good listen. It's as solid an album as any on the market today.
You can stream all 8 tracks right here.
I think you'll agree that this is a band worth paying attention to and keeping an eye on for good things to come in the future.
It was recorded in Indianapolis, IN at a place called Ark Barn Studio, a small individually owned studio.
It was engineered, mixed and mastered by Ryan Koch.
So far We've Been Sent Here to Destroy You has only been released digitally, however, there plans for a potential small run of physical CD's and possibly vinyl too.
The Guilford Blackouts are playing on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at a place in Indy called the Drink or Die Haus. It's a guys house but they run shows out of the basement. and again on Friday, March 15 at Birdy's Bar and Grill. It's also in Indianapolis.
