Sacramento-based Irish alternative rockers ONOFF deliver an assertive yet comedic take on the current power struggle between the general public and corrupt governments with their new single, “Blah Blah Blah,” taken from their upcoming album due in early 2023. Scheduled for release digitally this Friday, July 22, the band have debuted its parody-driven music video today (July 21) as seen streaming below. ONOFF will celebrate the release this Friday with a headlining, all-ages show at Goldfield Trading Post in Roseville, CA where attendees will be able to hear them perform “Blah Blah Blah” live among other previous singles, and the band will give away a signed Gretsch guitar, signed drumheads and more. Tickets are available HERE.
“Music is a never-ending story, one that’s always evolving…but could it really end fascism alone?” asks ONOFF lead singer and guitarist PAULIE. “Not likely, but a certain song can unify us, the people. In today’s world the news & media still serve untrue source-less garbage down our throats but through smart phones & tablets. Their power is clear. People are addicted, social media is the drug, and the world is hooked. ‘Blah Blah Blah’ is a stone-cold bitter truth, a three-minute alarm. Listen for yourself, it’s time to WAKE UP!”
Formed in the early 2000’s in Ireland, the three-piece—PAULIE, drummer/backing vocalist STEVIE 10 BEARS and bassist/backing vocalist DAVE—extensively toured across Europe before relocating to Sacramento, CA in 2013. ONOFF have built a dedicated fanbase from performing over 800 gigs including sold-out headlining shows some of the most well-known West Coast venues such as the Whisky A-Go-Go in Los Angeles and both Bottom of The Hill and The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. ONOFF’s 2017 album REBORNmarked their first U.S. release and its single “Don’t Look Surprised” was voted the fifth most requested song of 2017 on KRXQ 98 Rock (Sacramento). In April 2020, the band dropped the stand-alone single and music video for “Closer” featuring rapper DuPree The Bay Bully which garnered over 206k streams across all platforms.
