“We should start a BAAAND!”

With those prophetic words, slurred after a late-night Boston bar crawl in 2005, THE LIGHTS OUT was born. Nobody remembers who said it. They’d never even played a note together. (Sometimes you just know it.)

The quartet cranks out the perfect soundtrack to a bank heist: breakneck, anthemic pop-rock, with a barrel of catchy choruses and melodies stickier than the High Life coating their sneakers by the end of every practice. Behind a stacked wall of intricate four-part vocal harmonies, THE LIGHTS OUT writes songs about bounty hunters, guys getting killed by volcanoes – and love.

Despite the great pride the band takes in being impulsive, THE LIGHTS OUT maintain an intense work ethic, recording and critiquing every gig like a college football team. With their growing reputation for dynamic live shows and the nods they’ve been receiving from fans and press, they’re clearly onto something.

THE LIGHTS OUT released two EPs in 2007 and 2008, and upped the ante with its first full-length album, “Color Machine” in late-2009.

"enLIGHTening" FACT:

The Lights Out is proudly independent. It has never hired outside managers, booking agents or publicists. The band is committed to success, and getting there 100% DIY.
