The Blackout: 'Operation Riot Squad Starts Now'

Post-hardcore Welsh rockers The Blackout, never ones to shy away from gang like activity, are launching a new operation - named 'Riot Squad'.

Its a free sign up which is open to anyone who wants to get involved in the inner workings of 6 Welshmen. Being a part of the Riot Squad allows you to gain access to everything that makes the Blackout camp work. Live video streaming, special studio reports, album input and more. Members will also gain access to a number of special pledges and have chance to obtain exclusive memorabilia as well as the forthcoming album before anyone else.

Below is a message from the boys themselves:

Listen up soldiers,

The Blackout need the members of Riot Squad to be an integral part of our new record. With that in mind, we've teamed up with Pledge Music to grant you clearance to some of our special operations. Many of these are one-off missions that won't be available again, so we need you to get involved.

So what do the members of Riot Squad get granted access to?
You get clearance to the classified Riot Squad dossier. An exclusive web portal that will keep you updated with all the goings on from the studio by posting demos, rough mixes, videos and more. We'll be live online as well so you can get in touch and give us your opinion on the music and you might even get a say in what goes on the album.

But there's more. Operation Riot Squad is all about getting you involved with The Blackout at the fundamental level. With that in mind, we are bringing you a number of exclusive and exciting classified objectives and missions to get you everything from signed merchandise to the chance to join us in the studio as well as private gigs and even the chance to be in one our music videos.

Obviously, one of the major missions of Riot Squad is to make the world a better place, with that in mind, we'll also be donating a percentage of the Pledge to Teenage Cancer Trust Wales.

Weve done a special video too, which you can see here.

Thanks for your loyal support. We would be nothing without you, soldiers.

We'll see you soon.
