2 future Blindspott gigs have been cancelled, however, the Christchurch gig will still be going ahead.

Blindspott will still be performing at 2003 The Party for NYE, and at BDO 03.

Full details for these gigs can be found on the muzic.net.nz gig guide.

I saw it. I've got to say, I didn't really like it. But beggers can't be choosers. Well done to Blindspott.

Check out what EMI has to say about Blindspott
Posted: Thu Nov 28, 2002 4:43 pm
BLINDSPOTT are PLATINUM PERFORMERS

How many young New Zealand musicians can claim that their self titled, debut album entered the charts at an impressive number 1?

Blindspott can.

The boys who have got the country chanting to hit singles such as Room to Breathe, Nil By Mouth and S.U.I.T have finally released what fans have been waiting for. And to show just how big these guys are, they went platinum in their first week of release!

Hailing from West Auckland, these boys have captured the heart of the nation's youth with their thundering anthems. Anybody who had the luck to see them perform earlier this year BIG DAY OUT will understand. Full of raw energy, they make music that can get a slow crowd moshing at 11am!

An entire album of superbly-produced tracks await punters who love their trademark sound. Loud, angry, and full of spine chilling moments that give you goose-bumps, this is a local album not to be missed. Full of diversity, the band recorded earlier this year at York St Studios, with the help of producer Paul Matthews. It’s going to be a big summer for the lads, who are planning a national tour very soon, and also a performance at the BIG DAY OUT, Ericsson Stadium January 17th 2003.

Blindspott Is #1!!
Posted: Sat Nov 9, 2002 10:46 am
Blindspott's new debut album is #1 on the NZ album charts this week!

Is this to show that greater and better things are on the way for New Zealand's very own nu-metal band?

Big Hopes For Blindspott
Posted: Sat Oct 26, 2002 10:47 am
They rarely play live. Their first album doesn't hit the shops until Monday. And until a few months ago, they weren't exactly a household name. Yet somehow, West Auckland rock band Blindspott have caused a major label bidding war, filled the auditorium at a recent gig literally to breaking point, racked up twice as many pre-sales of their album as the Red Hot Chili Peppers 'By The Way', built up an impressive media profile and secured themselves an instore appears at midnight this Sunday, a time-slot signalling the huge anticipation for their eponymous debut album.

Indeed, Blindspott's successful signatories EMI/Capitol Records are touting the band as New Zealand's answer to nu-metal, but how on earth did five mild-mannered blokes manoeuvre themselves out of the music consumer's blindspot and into the public eye?

Today, the band are just as eager to manoeuvre the snowboarder down the mountain on guitarist Marcus Powell's new X-Box as they are to chat about where they're at. The band - which also includes frontmat Damian Alexander, bassist Gareth Fleming, drummer Shelton Woolright and turntablist/keyboardist Karl Vilisini (aka DJ D'Lay) - have gathered at Powell's modest Massey home and talk has turned to the upcoming in-store appearance.

They're also keen to hear feedback on the album, which, under typically tight security because of the present climate of rife CD pirating and MP3 technology, was played to me at the EMI offices.

While most of the tracks are based on simple, moody two-chord progressions, they've spiced them up with big metal riffs, ambient synths, epic jams (closing track 'Ilah' is 10 minutes long), hip hop beats, bizarre samples (including an answer-phone message, jewellery box, footsteps and a car chase), and Alexander's emotive vocals interspersed with some not-so-subtle screaming.
