Listen up soldiers,

The Blackout need the members of Riot Squad to be an integral part of our new record. With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Pledge Music to grant you clearance to some of our special operations. Many of these are one-off missions that won’t be available again, so we need you to get involved.

So what do the members of Riot Squad get granted access to?

You get clearance to the classified Riot Squad dossier. An exclusive web portal that will keep you updated with all the goings on from the studio by posting demos, rough mixes, videos and more. We’ll be live online as well so you can get in touch and give us your opinion on the music and you might even get a say in what goes on the album.

But there’s more. Operation Riot Squad is all about getting you involved with The Blackout at the fundamental level. With that in mind, we are bringing you a number of exclusive and exciting classified objectives and missions to get you everything from signed merchandise to the chance to join us in the studio as well as private gigs and even the chance to be in one our music videos. Every single Pledger will also receive a Riot Squad Bandana and their name will be included in the album artwork.

Obviously, one of the major objectives of Riot Squad is to make the world a better place, with that in mind, we’ll also be donating a percentage of the Pledge to Teenage Cancer Trust Wales.

Thanks for your loyal support. We would be nothing without you, soldiers.

We’ll see you soon.

Riot Squad is coming, be part of the movement.
