Blackout Balter is a 5-piece rock band from Nashville, TN. Featuring Dave Keuning (The Killers) on their first outing, Twist and Bend, Blackout Balter has now pushed past that initial success and notoriety to release a bigger and more dynamic sound in Wild One. This is a brilliant melodic, sing-along chorus that has stellar harmonies and intense energy. I love the fuzz on the guitar. The tone is everything and the energy wrapped up in this is akin to old school garage bands or dive bar alt-grunge acts from the 90s. The energy in this tune is inspiring and driving.

“It’s a passionate song, jam-packed with attitude and raw emotion. When we recorded Wild One, I thought we’d just keep it as a demo for the next album, as I wrote this song after the others had already been recorded. But we all really liked the song’s character and grit, and it quickly became one of our favorites.”

Phil Cohen, Blackout Balter Frontman
