NEWS: Blindspott call it quits

By Charlette Hannah

For ten years Blindspott have been leading the New Zealand metal music scene, and now the boys are calling it quits.

Blindspott have had an impressive amount of radio play for a metal band. Thanks to fan's requests, radio stations were forced to play the songs. This set the boys off with a major label bidding war, two number one albums, triple platinum sales, a number one airplay single, countless sold out tours, and overseas adventures in South East Asia, Japan, America and Australia.

Marcus and Shelton are moving to the UK with their new band, Damian is focusing on a solo music project and his design career, while Dave will continue to tour international bands through NZ.

However all is not lost. If you're a fan of Blindspott, they are doing a New Zealand farewell tour. They'll be in Wellington on Friday 10th August at Union Hall.
