About to release their debut album in April on Brew, BLACKLISTERS is an unrelenting noise rock tour de force. Billy Mason-Wood’s skewed and often terrifying vocals with Dante Beesley’s sharp, distinctive guitar demand you undivided attention. Whilst underneath, Owen Griffiths’ marauding bass lines and Alistair Stobbart’s unrelenting drumming drive the songs with genuine menace. Taking cues from Leeds favorites Pulled Apart By Horses and label mates Kong, Blacklisters have drawn comparisons to 400 Blows, Shellac and early Glassjaw. With Dan Carter (BBC Radio1 Rock Show) likening them to noise rock giants The Jesus Lizard, Blacklisters pull no punches.
