Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Exclusive Q&A With Black It Out

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Black It Out.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

BLACK IT OUT: Black it Out (also known as BIO) is a Pop-Punk/Post-Hardcore band based in California.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

BLACK IT OUT: Warped Tour bands heavily influence us. RIP Warped Tour. We’ve been influenced by Blink-182, Sum 41, A Day to Remember, and Senses Fail. Blink-182 and Sum 41 influence us through their humorous lyrics. Sum 41 and Senses Fail by their riffs. A Day to Remember by their breakdowns. Senses Fail for their brutal lyrics. Honestly, all those bands shape our overall vibe.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

BLACK IT OUT: Our Latest track is called “Live, Laugh, Love,” featuring Anndy Negative. Your readers should check it out because it’s one of the few songs in the world about Karens. Karens are those people who constantly want to speak with the manager and have spectacular public freakouts. If you don’t know who Karens are, look up Karen compilations on YouTube. That will show you all that you need to know. I would say “Live, Laugh, Love,” featuring Anndy Negative, sums up our sound perfectly. It has breakdowns, Pop-Punk and Emo vocals, and Easycore riffs.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

BLACK IT OUT: When we play shows, they can expect tight performances from energetic musicians. We’re an internet band right now. We’re an E-band. Black It Out is only Bryan and me (Shaun). We focus on our recorded music, so we’re more of a studio band. You can expect polished performances from our music on Spotify!

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band in 5 years?

BLACK IT OUT: In five years, we hope that Black It Out has a cult following and a more significant online fan base. We want to be featured in more articles and be heard by more people worldwide. That’s our goal for our music. It would be rad to have one of our songs featured in a soundtrack.
