THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT. Hey Guys, There’s no point in dancing around the subject, so we’ll cut right to the chase. We regret to announce that Wolves will be the final release by The Blackout. Unfortunately we have come to the conclusion we are unable to sustain this band anymore, and we feel the time is right to bring it to a close. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make as a band, and although we do it with heavy hearts, we also do with our heads held high. We are all extremely proud of Wolves, and are eternallygrateful to each and every one of you who helped it get made. We said that it would not exist without your support, and we honestly mean that.We achieved more than we ever dreamed of when we started this band, and we take with us memories, relationships and friends that will last the rest of our lives. We have always said that we’d be nothing without the people who came to the shows, who stood out in the rain, who camped out overnight and we want to thank you, all of you, for making the last ten years so special for us. Whether you came to one show or one hundred, your passion and support has been humbling and life changing. We play our farewell shows in March 2015, these will be the last shows we will play as a band. Unfortunately, these shows will only be in the UK. There are no plans for anything more for The Blackout, so we hope you would like to come and party with us for the final time. Once again, thank you for helping us live out our dreams.

Sorry for the quietness from The Blackout HQ. We've been trying to put something special together for a proper final send off. We want to release a DVD with the last live show and a documentary about the entire life of TBO. Who'd be interested in it. And I mean would actually buy it?
We're planning a UK tour for the end of this year, who should we take out with us? Don't say Green Day.
Hey guys, So some of you may already be aware of what's happened with Gavin, others may not be. Long story short, at our show at Manchester Academy 2 last night (Oct 26th), Gavin suffered a recurrence of a neurological issue known as a hemiplegic migraine, which can affect motor skills, including speech and loss of sensation in certain limbs. As a result, he left the stage two songs from the end of the set. Having consulted local medical advice, in addition to what Gavin was told in hospital when this issue had occurred earlier this year, it's become clear that one of the key issues in helping Gav get better is rest. Unfortunately, that has put us in a difficult position, and it's with great regret that we have to announce we will not be performing any of the remaining dates on the "Final Party" tour at this time. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but we have to put the well being of the members of the band above all else, and we cannot perform to the standards we think you guys deserve without Gavin. We will be working on a solution to this in the coming days, and will let you know the moment we know when we'll be able to play again. We are truly sorry guys, but we hope you understand. Your words of kindness have been humbling and very much appreciated. We will see you soon. The Blackout.
