Blacklisters live | new Castrovalva | Nine Black Alps

Shop | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Bandcamp | Official Site

Hi all,

Welcome to our November mailout. Plenty going on at Brew HQ.


The band is currently working on album #2 as a follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘BLKLSTRS’.

The band took time out of their schedule to record a live session at The Brudenell Social Club, filmed by the ever so talented Anthologies. Click here to view. The band will also head down to London before the year is out to record a live session for Dan Carter’s Radio 1 Rock Show. More information on this soon.

Also, the band's new music video is close to completion. Directed by Matt Green (who also did the Trick F*ck video) ‘Clubfoot By Kasabian’ features balloons, suits and all the surreal behaviour you expect from a Blacklisters video. Keep your eyes peeled on the band's networks for the first peek.
