A Philadelphia-based hardcore outfit, Blacklisted released their first demo 7" in 2003. A self-titled affair, the EP fostered a quickie deal with Janey Jasta's Stillborn label, which led to the release of the EP CD Our Youth Is Wasted later that year. The Deathwish label was next to show interest, and Blacklisted embarked on a series of splits with the label, as well as a re-release of their Our Youth Is Wasted EP combined with their demo release. The year 2006 turned out to be rough for the band, as personal and band issues threatened to tear Blacklisted asunder. Fortunately, the bandmembers -- George Hirsch (vocals), Jon Nean (guitars), Dave Foster (guitar), Dave Walling (bass), and Shawn Foley (drums) -- were able to keep it all together, and Blacklisted released the "comeback" (of sorts) EP Peace on Earth, War on Stage in 2007. Following the EP, Blacklisted made a number of successful appearances on tour in the States, in addition to touring Europe and the U.K. In 2008, Blacklisted returned with a full-length pummeling, Heavier Than Heaven, Lonelier Than God, which was followed by tour of Australia with likeminded hardcore outfit 50 Lions. ~ Chris True
