Leeds-based noise quartet Blacklisters release their second album Adult through Smalltown America on September 18 – but you can listen to it now on TeamRock.com.
According to frontman Billy Mason-Wood, the band had one lofty goal when creating the follow-up to their 2012 eponymous debut.
“Writing this album was about proving to ourselves that we could sound exactly the same as Phil Collins,” says the vocalist. “Now that you can finally listen to it, I think you will agree that not only have we succeeded in sounding exactly the same as Phil Collins, but we may have written the greatest Phil Collins album – of all time.”
Personally, we think they’re more in line with The Jesus Lizard and The Birthday, but judge for yourself by streaming the 10 tracks below.
