About Band

EMERGENCY BLANKET is a band fully charged with life and energy. Emergency Blanket achieves a very classic, but still very fresh rock sound. Their first album "What is the Emergency Blanket?" was recorded in the band's, then, rehearsal room which was improvised as a recording studio in 2005. The album rave reviews in local press. Rolling Stone Magazine also released an article which headed "The band that breaks with the language frontiers" making reference to the band’s characteristics of singing in English in a Spanish speaking country. Their second LP "Combi + Nation" (2008) included a new concept, it consisted of songs in Spanish, English and songs that even combined both languages. This new concept worked well as the band experimented with different sounds and rhythms. Gino Solano and Jeremy Castillo joined the band soon after the recording of the album replacing Renzo Solano and Hans Menacho who also joined the band in 2008 replacing also original member Juan Carlos Flores. Achievements: - With the new line-up Emergency Blanket participates in the "Festival Claro" (a very important music festival in Perú) where they won the "Rock & Pop" Category. - In 2009 they opened for FAITH NO MORE in their "Second World Coming Tour" in South America. - In 2010 they won THE PEOPLE'S MUSIC AWARDS (London). The event also counted with the presence of top rated judges as producers Tony Platt (Led Zeppelin) and Mick Glossop (Van Morrison). - In 2010 they open for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS in the Estadio Monumental in Lima, Peru. - In April 2011 they participated in the SOUTH BY SOUTH WEST (Austin, Texas). They also record a song for the online album (found in itunes) made to support victims of the past sunami in Japan. The album is called "South By South for Japan". - This year they will be releasing their third album, "Absenta".
