Blynd
Blynd BLYND is a band from Tucson , Arizona that was formed originally in 1998. After 7 years of evolution and extensive sound experimentation, BLYND has harnessed a musical style all their own. Together this 5-man powerhouse creates a unique sound that intertwines digital samples and beats with a new age style of heaviness, evoking an high-energy emotional rollercoaster. BLYND has lived in Tucson for the entire existence of the band, but has played in other Arizona cities such as Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe, Lake Havasu City - and even as far as Torrence, California and Puerto Penasco in Sonora, Mexico. Venues previously played include The Rialto Theater, The Gotham / New West, The Wildcat House, The Rock, Pima County Fairgrounds, The Backstage, The Mason Jar, Slainee's, Hollywood Alley and many other numerous clubs and bars around Tucson and beyond. BLYND has been featured in Revolt In Style Magazine as well as In Your Ear Magazine. Aside from their original self-titled demo, BLYND has recently produced a 5-song EP, titled INSIGHT, which was recorded in Tucson at Avalanche Studios. Both albums have received an enormous amount of airplay on local Tucson radio stations KFMA and KLPX. BLYND has had the pleasure of opening for such up and coming acts as Soulfly, Korn, Chevelle, Yellowcard, My Chemical Romance, OTEP, I.R.A.T.E., Aggressive Persuasion, Blank Theory, E-Town Concrete and Noise Therapy. BLYND has also competed among hundreds of bands in the Tucson area and placed 2nd in the Suicide Lane Productions and Back Alley Productions Battle of the Bands in 2001 and 2002.
