The Lights Out have been traveling down a long, forked road. On that road, there are branches of you splitting off with every decision you make. Each branch is a different you, living a different version of your life, in a whole other world. The Lights Out have seen every color and every shape of your parallel lives. They’re as real as this one. And now, they’re taking you on a TRIP. They’re breaking through the void that separates this reality from the others. It’s dark out there, so follow their lights, or you won’t make it back.

In this reality, The Lights Out have showcased at music conferences from SXSW to CMJ, released multiple albums, had songs on MTV, appeared in Billboard and played an arena and a dome. For more, visit thelightsout.com
