With food, beer, and America at the forefront, it only makes sense guitar player Christian Gordy and drummer Taryn Waldman would meet at Gordy's 2011 July 4th cookout in Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. With no direction and zero discussion the two instinctually began banging out some massive caveman jams that could party as much as they could crush. In the following months, the two recruited fellow rager Justin Sherrll for bass, and things got loud and heavy. Blackout-referring to Blackout drunk, power failure, or a mobster hit on an entire family, was a no brainer for a name. For fans of Acid King, Weedeater, Trouble, and Black Sabbath.
