Along with Lostprophets and Kids In Glass Houses, The Blackout are part of a Welsh mafia of rock music. Ticking all the post hardcore boxes, the band knew each other as nippers and singer Gavin Butler claims 'the band was a by-product of our friendship' - a fact their fan army the Riot Squad are very thankful for.

Now on their fourth album after signing to Cooking Vinyl - the home of Marilyn Manson, The Prodigy and Howling Bells - the marvels from Merthyr Tydfil return to Reading + Leeds for the fourth time, bringing their uplifting guitar riffs in to the light.
