Originally formed in 2011 as a 5-piece band, THE BLANK STANDARD became known for awe-inspiring live performances across Chicago. Through the years following the initial foray onto the scene, the band has seen change and challenge. After the departure of several members in late 2013, Eric Burns (guitars) and Brandon White (drums, album vocals) continued on with the indispensable help of Paul Gravdal (album production/studio bass). Nearly 5 years later, pain and perseverance have resulted in the release of the band’s self-titled debut album; an authentic representation of the power that the band brought live, and a bridge to the future, with the reemergence of THE BLANK STANDARD.
THE BLANK STANDARD is:
Brandon White – Drums, Vocals
Eric Burns – Guitars
Paul Gravdal – Bass
