At the heart of Blkout’s sophomore full-length "Point Of No Return", these five musicians have ventured into new territory as they embrace the struggles of modern middle-class youth – from poverty and desperation to brushes with the law. Originally an outlet for the band to pay homage to New York greats like Cro-Mags and Breakdown, the range of influences this band shares have seeped on to this release with diverse instrumentalisation favoured over the traditional hardcore fanfare.
Collaborating once again with Sydney producer Lachlan Mitchell at Def Wolf Studio, who lent a hand to the No Justice No Peace 7”, experimenting was a natural progression for the band. Brutally sincere and uncompromising, Point Of No Return sets in stone that Blkout are willing to push the boundaries of Australian hardcore to their hilt.
