The Blackout Pact
The Blackout Pact's demise was a highly scrutinized one. A fellow touring band's laptop went missing, and a quick search found it nestled among the Pact's personal possessions. Blame was placed, and the band fell apart. More than two years after that fateful day in Las Vegas, the Pact is back with Wolves in the Lazarette. The music here is good enough to make fans forget about the members' sticky fingers and focus instead on what's coming from their hands. Guitars playfully finger-tap around an upbeat, punk-rock foundation as vocalists Mike Herrera and Cory Trendler bark lines about trying to find salvation at the bottom of a bottle of whiskey. It's a formula that seems strong enough to win back most of the fans they once so foolishly lost.
