Austin’s Brownout unleashed the Brown
Sabbath Vol.I project garnering acclaim from
outlets such as NPR (50 Best Albums of 2014),
Pitchfork, hardcore Black Sabbath fans and
most important of all Ozzy Osbourne himself,

An 8-piece outfit formed ten years ago by members of Grammy
Award-winning Latin revival orchestra Grupo Fantasma, Brownout
has evolved into a musical force all its own. With a succesful tour
of Brown Sabbath under their belt including Bonnaroo and Austin

band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly
progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such
as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic.
Brownout now has four albums under their belt including Brown
Sabbath Vol.I (Ubiquity 2014), Homenaje (Freestyle Records
2008), Aguilas & Cobras (Six Degrees 2009) and Oozy (Nat Geo
2012). Tour dates to support Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath
Vol.II, will be announced shortly.
