Blinded Black deliver a unique style by combining a heavy synthesizer sound with power-rock. Hailing from St. Louis, MO, the band developed a strong fan base with constant self-promotion and non-stop touring. The band will deliver their debut LP early 2007 that is tentatively titled If TimingÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s EverythingÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‚¦
Blinded Black have appeared on tours with Bleed the Dream, A Change of Pace, Limbeck, Letter Kills and have made multiple Warped Tour appearances. The fruits of constant touring propelled Blind BlackÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s current EP, Sealed with a Stitch, to the third top-selling rock artist at Vintage Vinyl, with Fall Out Boy taking second place.
Alternative Press magazineÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Aaron Burgess has featured Blinded Black in its Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Unsigned Band of the MonthÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? section. The passion Blinded Black put into their music, expresses their desire to grow and produce the best music possible.
