Critical Praise for Lightouts
Named one of SPIN's 2012 CMJ "Next Big Things"

"Definitely a band to look out for, Lightouts have the potential to be massive."
- The Music Ninja

"... perfect for lovers of the nu-nu-wave of '90s-gone-feral punkos like Parquet Courts and PAWS. Check out these cloud somethings." - Chris Weingarten, SPIN

"It is kind of like The Talking Heads ate a shit load of pot brownies with The Replacements while watching a jam band cover Blondie."

The Video:

Late last summer Entourage star Adrian Grenier's Brooklyn home was the scene of a home invasion by local indie rock band Lightouts. According to reports, the band entered via the basement recording studio and commandeered Adrian's drum kit and the studio's high-gain amps. Cameras then caught the band's sweltering performance of the title track from their upcoming album Want (3/5/13) in high definition.

The live video, which was actually shot for Grenier's, is a great look into the energy and vibe of Lightouts.'s mantra of collaboration and support was embraced wholeheartedly by the band in their leave-everything-on-the-field performance. "The WRECKROOM is a music space in my home, a gathering place for bands, friends and fellow musicians to write, record, and perform. The goal... is to share the music we make, put a face to the players, and provide an opportunity for listeners to download our collaborations." said Adrien Grenier. Past WRECKROOM sessions include performances by Space Hog, Moon Hooch, Gull, The Skins, and The Honey Brothers.

"When Wreckroom asked us to play a track, we decided on 'Want' because it's the most collaboratively written song on the album, and it shows how we've developed from a duo into a full fledged power quartet," remarked bassist Dean Perry. "Want" shows the depth of Lightouts' sound and songwriting as it ebbs and flows between spirited guitars and a honeyed, bass-driven verse. Lightouts debut album Want drops on March 5th.

The Background:

Lightouts founder Gavin Rhodes started with a simple question: "Robert Smith/Emily Haines, where are you?" But this appeal to fans of The Cure and Metric didn't appear on Craigslist or in The Village Voice. The flyer was posted near the less-than-picturesque Gowanus Canal. Greg Nelson, a veteran of the NYC music scene, responded to the ad and the rest, as they say, is history. The group exhibit a rare musical and stylistic cohesion: structured bass lines, waves of fuzzed out guitars and vaporous vocals put a new spin on the moody post-punk aesthetic of bands like Joy Division and Smashing Pumpkins circa Siamese Dream. In the past two years, the Gowanus band has released a series of singles that featured both an A-side and two B-sides, which allowed the band to offer up songs complemented by experimentation and deep-cut covers.The band's debut album, Want, will be released on March 5th, 2013
