To support these releases, the band has toured Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Japan with some of the worlds top rock acts such as: Metallica, Deftones, Linkin Park, Alexisonfire and Avenged Sevenfold, to name a few. “Your’s Truly” was the first single of the bands sophomore album “End the Silence” which was recorded by Ed Rose (Emery, Puddle of Mud, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Kurt Cobain) The Highly anticipated album was produced by Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstrom (Poison the Well, Refused, Cult of Luna, Komeda) and was released in May 2006, making Blindspott the only band in New Zealand history to have consecutive number 1 debut/sophomore albums on release. 2008 saw the release of the Sold Out CD/DVD: Live at the Powerstation, which is also at Gold status. This disc captured the intensity of Blindspott’s renowned live act.

2011 saw a new era dawn for Blindspott, with their announced reformation, headlining spot at New Zealand’s ‘Homegrown’ festival and replacing of previous drummer Shelton Woolright with newcomer Tristian Reilly.

The band, minus Woolright, is now recording and performing under the name 'BlackList', due to Woolright's unwillingness (as a founding member) to let them continue as Blindspott. « hide
