Blacklisters have earned a reputation as a formidable live act through aggressive, confrontational performances riddled with dark humour, drawing comparisons to The Jesus Lizard and Pissed Jeans. Over the past few years, the Leeds quartet have deservedly earned their reputation as one of the UK's most confrontational and aggressive live acts.
Blacklisters new album 'Adult' is a clear progression for the band, and demonstrates a growing confidence in their song writing and performance, from the abstract art-noise to the unrelenting, brutally minimalist riffs that first put them on the radar.
