The Lights Out

Boston, Massachusetts

This foursome from Boston is undeniably stickier than a Hudy Delight-soaked dance floor thanks to four-part harmonies, angular riffs and stories of volcanoes and bounty hunters. MTV Networks picked up the guys’ contagious Alt Rock track “Gottagetouttahere” to feature on VH1’s Tough Love: Couples. It’s a track on the band’s latest album, Color Machine, which the band has supported at national festivals, regional tours and all over the Boston scene, not to mention at the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium.
