Yep, having only launched the campaign to fund new EP 'Wolves' on Friday, Welsh champs The Blackout have already achieved their £10,000 target.

Nice one, lads, nice one, forward-thinking music purchasers. Here's a message from Gavin Butler:

If you missed it yesterday, we reached our target to get our E.P. Wolves off the ground in JUST OVER 28 HOURS! Thank you so much to everyone who bought something, it means so much that you want us to make more music. 

There are still items left on the kickstarter page. We're looking at it from here on in as a pre-order platform. Physical copies of the E.P. will not be going into major stores but be sold through our webstore. So whether you pledge on the kickstarter or wait to buy from our online store, it's pretty much the same thing. With one difference, your name in the artwork.

Digital release will happen through itunes, amazon and all the usual outlets as well as spotify. We'll be heading into the studio on the 30th June so as a thank you we'll be posting blogs and photos on our kickstarter site.

Again Thank you so much for the support we've had over the past weekend. When setting a time frame for the project we used 60 days because we didn't have any idea the response would be so overwhelming. Thanks for letting us do what we love.


The Blackout are hoping to release an EP 'Wolves' via Kick Starter later this year. More info on that is here.
