About this artist

Combining hard rock and industrial electronica, Blacklite District began playing their cathartic and angst-filled brand of music in America’s plains, specifically South Dakota. Vocalist Roman James and guitarist Kyle Pfeiffer had been playing in different bands for years in the state’s Black Hills area, but in early 2011 they met producer Stephen Short, who signed them to a production deal. Blacklite District were born, and by the end of the year they had proof with the release of the This Is Where It Ends EP. In 2012 they relocated from South Dakota to Los Angeles, and then on to Florida after signing with Paramore and Creed manager Jeff Hanson’s Warner-affiliated imprint Silent Majority Group. In 2013 the label released their With Me Now EP, which the group supported on a nationwide tour with Saving Abel and Art of Dying. Their debut album, Worldwide Controversy, landed in 2014. ~ David Jeffries
