With equal parts of Orange County punk, honky tonk country, and rockabilly sensibilities, Reno Divorce strikes a unique chord of their own in a diluted genre of what passes as "Punk rock'n'roll". Throw in well-crafted and deftly executed songs that straddle the line between Smithereens and Social Distortion, and you've got a band that truly stands out amongst the herd. Oh, and there's one more thing….this aint the boys' first rodeo…they've played with almost all their punk hereos (ALL, Social D, TSOL, Adolescents, Agent Orange, Shattered Faith, X, The Blasters, Motorhead), and shared a tour bus with more contemporary heavy hitters, ala U.S. Bombs, The Bones, and Street Dogs. They've worked with the cream of the crop behind the scenes, as well. Their last record, "Tears Before Breakfast" was produced by Jason Livermore at the world famous Blasting Room and the support tours for that album were handled by M.A.D. Booking in Europe, where among other great festivals, they graced the Saturday Night Fever Stage at With Full Force. Always captivating live, and wrought with more hooks than your uncle Bob's tackle box, Reno Divorce has carved out a reputation as the real nitty gritty, a true "musician's band" that pushes the envelope with every release, without sounding contrived or formulated. Brent Loveday's adept songwriting and clever storytelling are brought to life by the bands expert musicianship. With Brent Loveday on lead guitar and vocals, Tim Jadowski on bass, Tye Battistella on Rhythm guitar and Ruben Patino the band fires on all cylinders. backed by a band that fires on all cylinders. Reno Divorce has earned honors in Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Loud Fast Rules, and (more importantly to the band) the respect of their peers.
Little is known about this wayward trio, but from numerous reports they have been entertaining and/or alienating audiences since roughly 2009. Originating in Kansas, they were quickly branded as "wheat rock" (a highly offensive music classification to midwesterners). Due to this shameful episode they relocated to Colorado where they tried very hard to fit into the "sedimentary rock" sound of the Denver scene. Failing at this as well, ultimately they decided to just be themselves. Granny Tweed's brand of "self rock" is an ambitious amalgam of sounds including but not limited to experimental punk rock, country, alterna-indie and surf music.
The Blackouts are a Los Angeles-based 80s, new wave, dark wave, and indie cover band which formed in 2007. Although each member has played in their share of original bands from a variety of musical genres, they all have one thing in common; they love to passionately perform songs from classic 80s and indie bands like The Smiths, Joy Division, The Cure, Morrissey, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Damned, Bauhaus, David Bowie, The Cult, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Dramarama, Duran Duran, The Strokes, She Wants Revenge, Interpol, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, and The Editors to name a few.
The Blackouts have played shows all over the greater Los Angeles area from Hollywood to Pomona and everywhere in between. They've had the honor of warming up the stage for acts such as Berlin, The English Beat, and Gene Loves Jezebel and have received praise from noted DJs such as Richard Blade of KROQ fame and Raul Campos of KCRW.
"Los Angeles has plenty of cover bands, but not many have the killer talent and range to cover some of the best dark decades of music as The Blackouts do! " ~ Aldo Serrano (Filmmaker/Director)
