THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT slowed down in 2010. Not because of a lack of time or motivation but as a consequence of a rational decision. Having reached most of their personal goals and a good dose of 'common music business goals' such as various European tours, constant media presence, positive press feedback and a long list of notable releases, the band more and more zeroed in on the true crux of playing in a band: music itself and its creation. Focusing on the quality and heart in everything they do, this shift in THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT's self-concept and vision lead to the native but also longsome birth of their new album 'Detention'.
Infact the creative process of 'Detention' started in June 2009 already, when the first five songs were written and demo'ed. Since then THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENThave worked constantly on both, the album and the band itself. They wrote and recorded more than 20 songs, reworked them and let them mature in a constant cycle and finally tracked them at Suiseidl Studios (Munich, Germany) with highest care and consideration. Subsequently this creation was narrowed down to a selection of 14 harmonizing songs which in the end made up 'Detention', to be released in January 2011.
THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT pride themselves over their effort to self-produce 'Detention', an approach that played another key role in (re-)coining the band. 'Detention' is challenging and manifold yet extremely catchy and engaging. It creates a very sanguine mix of heavy rock and forward-thinking hardcore. It became nothing less than the album the band always wanted to create.
