Biography

With roots directly planted in the original bohemian Greenwich Village, NYC’s Outernational has assembled an arsenal of blistering rock and roll, defiant lyrics and an infectious sense of rhythm that is reminiscent of both The Clash and Rage Against The Machine. In fact, Tom Morello of RATM thought so much of the band that he produced 17 superb tracks with Outernational, six of which have been released on their EP Eyes on Fire. College radio has had a field day with the new EP, keeping the record in the top 100 of CMJ for many weeks. In addition to the band’s genre-bending rendering sound on record, their live performance is truly a face melting, foot stomping, fist pumping roller coaster. Guitarist Leo Mintek and bassist Jesse Williams complete the front line of the band, dancing and singing while providing the engine of the band’s “Future Rock” sound. Dr. Blum, a singular personality on and off the stage serves as the band’s one-man orchestra section, with duties including trumpet, organ, harmonium, accordion, tin-whistle and singing. Then there’s Miles Solay: militant revolutionary politics unleashed and a romantic fervor with his heart on his sleeve. You can’t help but want to follow this band down the path of revolution rock and into a future where music is boxed-in no more; a world of people working in common for the common good.

    Really excited to see where the band goes. All the songs on the first EP are great! Want to listen to an actual album though. Their new EP "Todos Somos Ilegales" is coming soon!

    This band used to be fantastic. They've gotten away from their roots.

    They're an odd pairing for a GBH tour. But looking at the band alone, they had a unique rock sound drawing from great roots, then energy and personality. They should open for Gogol Bordello.

    This band is fucking garbage. I have no idea why GBH is touring with them, but this entire band needs to be stricken with radiation poisoning and die of hideous cancerous keloid lesions.

    This is kind of late. Though, you guys are absolutely amazing, and were at the Webster. I'm sorry that you suffered from awful microphones and stage equipment. But you all make a very interesting sound together that's extremely pleasant. Looking forward to some new stuff! :)
