​Blacklist Union is a hard rock band out of LA. The band has been keeping themselves busy with the release of their album Back To Momo earlier this year. Take a look at what Blacklist Union had to say when they sat down with BareBones Ent!

BS: For people that may not know, how would you best describe Blacklist Union?

BLU: Street rock. Rock. Rock N Roll that delivers.

BS: What bands have influenced the music you make and why?

BLU: Mother Love Bone is my biggest influence personally as far as vocals. I was influenced by a lot of Punk Rock, especially The Ramones.

BS: What is something about you that fans might not know?

BLU: I like cartoon movies.

BS: You recently added a new guitarist to the band. What do you feel this brings to the band?

BLU: I am a 2 guitar guy. I always loved Aerosmith, GnR, and The Stones and what the 2 guitars add to the overall sound. 

BS: You released a popular video for “Evil Eye”. What does it feel like to see such a reaction to the video?

BLU: My son did an amazing job and the video was very emotional. It goes to show the more authentic that you are, the more people relate.

BS: What was the filming of the video like for you?

BLU: It was very emotional and forward moving. My mother is not a good person, and it was nice leaving all that behind.
