 Spearfish, SD based electronic alternative rock act Blacklite District has announced that they will be joining FLAW as direct support on their North American tour run. Launching Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs, the tour winds through the Midwest and West Coast, winding up in Omaha on March 3rd.

We are excited to join FLAW and THE CROWNED on this upcoming tour. We’re going to be debuting a brand new show and it’s going to be our biggest production to date. We thrive on making sure what we do is different and something that stands out from the pack. In terms of rock music, there is no other show on the planet like a BLD show, and that’s not me just saying something cliche. There’s a reason we’re the kings of new age, and we hope you’ll come see why. – Blacklite District

REVIEW: VISTA – Allegiance (Single)


REVIEW: VISTA – Allegiance (Single)                                                                                             by Carina Lawrence

New and exciting alt rock act VISTA from New York are  setting out to take the scene by storm and are rapidly building momentum. With a successful debut EP, ‘Versus’ and their latest dominating single ‘Henchmen’ under their belts already, they are wasting no time by releasing new ambient and feisty single ‘Allegiance’.

From the off the new song is striking with interesting rhythms and is very atmospheric, giving it a deep and dark edge. It is a powerful driven song with strong compelling vocals throughout, and hard-hitting bouncy riffs and beats, giving it the ultimate anthemic rock sound that oozes swagger. This is a song you are going to want to stick on repeat, especially whilst you eagerly wait for their next offerings, which hopefully aren’t far off, as this is the lead single from their next upcoming EP. What they have achieved since their formation last year is impressive and only highlights further that this is a band to watch out for this year.

SCORE: 5/5

The new single ‘Allegiance’ is out May 19th.
