Formed in 2004 by frontman Tony West, Blacklist Union released their debut ‘After The Mourning’ in April of 2006, which was met by critical acclaim all across the globe. From Memphis to Melbourne to Louisiana to London, Blacklist Union instantly made a mark throughout the rock n’ roll underground. Their follow-up in 2008 ‘Breakin’ Bread With The Devil’ with tracks including the title track, along with “Sixty-Five Steps Away” and “Wicked Love Song,” received the same amount of critical acclaim and put them on the map in the rock n’ roll world yet again. The band’s third full-length CD entitled, “Til Death Do Us Part” was released in 2012 and features amazing tracks including “Alabama Slammer,” “Diggin’ 4 Gold” was received yet with the highest ratings and reviews in the press. Blacklist Union are getting ready to release their fourth CD, ‘Back to Momo,’ which will without a doubt be received with the same level of enthusiasm and will certainly be exposing them to a larger audience around the world.
Blacklist Union have toured nationally receiving five star reviews from music industry magazines, fanzines, webzines, and has a continuously growing fan base both domestically and internationally. With all of their hard work and perseverance, Blacklist Union are a true rock n’ roll band that continuously push themselves to the limit in every aspect of their music. Singer/songwriter Tony West tackles real life situations that affect each and every one of us in one form or another. From character assassination, to name dropping, addictions, sexual innuendos, romance, friendships, birth, death and living on the edge of destruction is just a fraction of what is touched on in their music.
Blacklist Union recently signed with Doug Goldstein and When Pigs Fly Entertainment. The former Guns n’ Roses manager and current Blacklist Union manager has said that ‘Back to Momo’ is “The best record that he’s heard since ‘Appetite For Destruction’ and that “Tony West is the hardest working frontman he knows.” Keep a lookout for the first single and video for “Alive N Well Smack in the Middle of Hell” coming soon!
