Blakfish are a four-piece from Birmingham, UK. They have been playing together since they were 12 so that explains the weak name.
2007 saw them play at Download festival and Music Live at the NEC. Over the last two years they have been lucky enough to play with: Spy Versus Spy, This Aint Vegas, Charlottefield, Ack Ack Ack, Russian Circles, An Albatross, RX Bandits, SikTh, Enter Shikari, Marmaduke Duke, The Scare, DIE! DIE! DIE!, Kid's In Glass Houses and You say Party! We Say die! and Dartz! just to name a few. 2008 has already seen them complete a 28-date UK tour with BSM's late but great Meet Me In St Louis. With a short stint in Ireland, accompanying Tubelord, at the end of March coming up and then a fortnight on the continent straight after, shows there are no signs they will be resting this year.
