Blind Channel Short Info

Blind Channel is a fresh, energetic, up-and-coming violent pop-quintet from Oulu, Finland, formed in September 2013. The band’s distinctive production offers the listeners unique rap- and electronic compositions, and a feisty package of kicking guitar riffs, without forgetting tenacious pop melodies.

Averagely 18 year old group’s debut EP was released last fall with a music video, and it gained a lot of attention. The first single “Save Me” reached the Finnish radio waves in only one week and through these events Blind Channel was selected to Finnish radio station Ylex’s “basement band” of the week.

Iltalehti, one of Finland’s biggest newspaper media’s noticed the band’s first music video and in a couple months the views have reached over 20 000. The band has established its profile actively by doing shows all around Finland, including the southern metropolitan areas.

Blind Channel’s two-sided single ”Antipode” was released 21.3.2013. The band worked on the songs for many months with a producer Mikko Mäkitalo. The single’s B-side “Naysayers” saw daylight one week before the actual release, and the A-side “Calling Out” premiered on a local radio station Radio City one day before the release. The premiere also included an interview with the band. The second music video came out the same day. The whole “Antipode” single can be found from Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and other respective services. Also a limited edition of physical copies was made.

This summer they have played in Finnish big festivals in JääliCityRock, Provinssirock, Ilosaarirock, Qstock & Nummirock where they won the Wacken Metal Battle in Finland so they also played their first gig ever abroad in the world's biggest metal festival in Wacken Open Air in Germany to over 6000 people at Wet Stage. In August 2014 Blind Channel also played a sold out show with Enter Shikari [UK] at the The Circus, Helsinki.

Blind Channel released their latest "Foreshadow" EP in the 4th of October and did their first Finnish headline tour. At the same time when they touring they've started to work out with their upcoming debut album.

Blind Channel attracts both heavier and lighter music lovers. Even though the band is so fresh, they already have pretty awesome hooks and imaginative ideas in their first release! Rock clubs and sweaty festival gigs are downright begging for Blind Channel's name!" - Pirita Pykäläinen, YLEX
