The music of Emergency Blanket is charged with hard rock energy. From powerful guitar riffs to melancholic ballads to accompany melodic cutting edge vocals and a live show that captivates anyone that goes to see this band do what they most love doing, rockin it!

With two previous records What is the emergency blanket? (EP 2005) and Combi + Nation (LP 2008), Emergency Blanket will be presenting their new and latest LP titled “Absenta” to be released digitally in February 2013 via Do It! Records. With this Emergency Blanket take’s on a new chapter in their lives as one of South America’s emerging rock bands.

New record Absenta was recorded in Lima, Perú and mixed In LA by sound engineer German Villacorta (Ozzy Osbourne, Eva Ayllon, Rolling Stones) and mastered by Dave Collins (The Police, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, etc).

A true highlight of Emergency Blankets achievements is winning THE PEOPLE’S MUSIC AWARDS 2010 in the Metal/Punk/Indie/Rock category which took place in London, England. There they received positive comments from the judges at the awards such as “I am very impressed by their energy and enthusiasm and the quality of their writing and playing. Sign them somebody so I can work with them!” - TONY PLATT (Producer: Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, The Who, Rolling Stones among others) and “They show great promise and can expect interest from anyone with ears for good music.” - Mick Glossop (Producer: Van Morrison and Frank Zappa). Alongside the awards, the band completed their first European tour which included 9 cities within England, France and Switzerland and where they were also invited to open for legendary Spanish Pop/Rock band “Hombres G” in Zurich.

They participated in Austin Texas’s SXSW 2011 Music Festival along with other side gigs and were also invited to participate recording a song live for the SXSW 4 Japan telethon organized by the Hanson Brothers in the famous “Same Sky Studios” (Texas) to raise money for those affected by the terrible Earthquake/Tsunami which took place in Japan that same year.

Emergency Blanket is a band that displays a very energetic live performance with rebellious energy true of hard rock. Not only are they starting to be considered as a must in Peru’s most important Rock Festivals, playing to large crowds in “Lima Vive Rock 2012” (15,000+), “Acustirock 2013” (12,000+) and Lima Rockea (5,000+), but their music has lead them to be invited to open for bands such as Faith no More (2009), Hombres G (2010), Stone temple Pilots (2010), Aerosmith (2011) and Creed (2012).

In late 2012 they signed with digital distributor “DO IT RECORDS” for world wide release of their latest album “ABSENTA”, DO IT works with top artists such as PRESIDENTS OF THE USA and EVERCLEAR among others.
The album was released February 28th of 2013 and is available in all digital stores world wide.

Emergency Blanket is soon to be reaching 20,000 fans on their facebook profile and continues to grow every day due to their persistence and self believe. This is a band to look out for in 2013!
