Info7"6th October 2017

7" EP from Blacklisters on Too Pure Singles Club.

Their Too Pure single was recorded live at Greenmount Studios (Pulled Apart By Horses, Post War Glamour Girls) and captures the band’s dynamic sound and raw energy. These songs mark the first batch written with Hodson as they prepare to record their third album.

Who are these Blacklisters? Well... They formed in 2008, quickly earning a reputation as a formidable live act through aggressive, confrontational performances riddled with dark humour, and drawing comparisons to The Jesus Lizard and Pissed Jeans.

In 2009 they released the Swords 7”, on Best Enemies Records, and in 2010 the Belt Party EP on Childhood Sweetheart Records. Their reputation as an intense live act continued to grow as they toured with the likes of Kong and Pulled Apart by Horses and played incendiary sets at the Leeds and Reading Festivals.

Their debut album 'BLKLSTRS' was released to acclaim in 2012 on the now defunct Leeds label Brew Records, resulting in praise from the likes of Kerrang, NME, Rock Sound, The Quietus, Loud & Quiet, Artrocker, Rock A Rolla and Drowned in Sound, as well as an invitation to record a live session at Maida Vale studios for the Radio 1 Rock Show.

Adult, their second album, was recorded with producer Matt Johnson and released on the Small Town America label in 2015. The album was a clear progression for the band, demonstrating a growing confidence in their song writing and performance, from abstract art-noise to the unrelenting, brutally minimalist riffs that first put them on the radar.

Blacklisters have headlined tours in the UK and Europe, and been invited to open for the likes of Scratch Acid, Pig Destroyer, Future of the Left and Big Business. Steven Hodson (USA Nails, Kong) recently joined the band, replacing original bass player Owen Griffiths. Steven joins Billy Mason Wood (Vocals), Dante Beesley (Guitar) and Alistair Stobbart (Drums).
