The music of Emergency Blanket is charged with hard rock energy. From powerful guitar riffs to melancholic ballads to accompany melodic cutting edge Vocals and a live show that captivates anyone that goes to see this band do what they most love doing, rockin it!
With two previous records "What is the emergency blanket?" (EP 2005) and Combi + Nation" (LP 2008), Emergency Blanket released their new and latest LP titled "Absenta" on February 2013 via Do It! Records. With this Emergency Blanket take's on a new chapter in their lives as one of South America's emerging rock bands.
A true highlight of Emergency Blankets achievements is winning THE PEOPLE'S MUSIC AWARDS 2010 in the "Metal/Punk/Indie/Rock" category which took place in London, England. There they received positive comments from the judges at the awards such as "I am very impressed by their energy and enthusiasm and the quality of their writing and playing. Sign them somebody so I can work with them!" - TONY PLATT (Producer: Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, The Who, Rolling Stones among others) and "They show great promise and can expect interest from anyone with ears for good music." - Mick Glossop (Producer: Van Morrison and Frank Zappa). Alongside the awards, the band completed their first European tour which included 9 cities within England, France and Switzerland and where they were also invited to open for legendary Spanish Pop/Rock band "Hombres G" in Zurich.
They participated in Austin Texas's SXSW 2011 Music Festival along with other side gigs and were also invited to participate recording a song live for the SXSW 4 Japan telethon organized by the Hanson Brothers in the famous "Same Sky Studios" (Texas) to raise money for those affected by the terrible Earthquake/Tsunami which took place in Japan that same year. In 2013 they were part of the Dewey Beach Music Conference in Delaware, USA getting rave reviews and playing in one of the biggest radio stations "Sirius XM" in New York.
Emergency Blanket is a band that displays a very energetic live performance with rebellious energy true of hard rock.
