    The Blank Tapes is the moniker of Los Angeles / San Francisco based multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Matt Adams, who has produced 9 albums of "winsome pop tunes" (OC Weekly) and "Kinks-plus-Creedence roots-rock 'n' roll" (LA Record) recorded almost entirely by himself on an 8 track cassette tape recorder in garages, basements & sheds across the California coast. Lately his band has consisted of Pearl Charles, DA Humphrey, & Will Halsey and the four piece recently toured Europe for their second time sharing stages with the likes of Thee Oh Sees and R. Stevie Moore. Immediately before that, they toured Japan for their first time along with the director of the surf movie Stoked & Broke by (which includes over a dozen Blank Tapes songs in the soundtrack and has gained international acclaim within the surf community). Earlier this year, they also toured Brazil for their second time (after having 2 of their songs featured in TV commercials), not to mention all of the massive amounts touring they've done here in America.

    While Adams and co. are currently finishing up a new studio album called Vacation (to be released in early 2013), the band is set to release their newest 7", I'm Back on San Francisco's 20-Sided Records! Also, the band recently released a wonderful cassette only release, Sun's Too Bright, on Fullerton's Burger Records. Before that they released a split cassette called Invisible Colors on Portland's Curly Cassettes label along with a vinyl & CD of Home Away From Home on LA Records' White Noise label, which showed a new pschedelic rock direction different than their previous folk rock albums. Aside from music, Matt Adams is also the artist behind all of his posters & album covers and has even worked for MAD Magazine at one point!

    This might not be the first time you've heard Matt Adams' Blank Tapes but we can assure you that it won't be the last!
