Austin's Nine-piece Psychedelic Latin-Funk Masters 'Brownout' collective formed ten years ago by members of Grammy Award-winning Latin revival orchestra Grupo Fantasma. Brownout has since evolved into a musical force all its own. After garnering their third Austin Music Awards, the band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic. They've performed at events including Bonnaroo, High Sierra Music Festival, Pickathon, FFFFest, Bear Creek Music Festival, Utopia Festival and Pachanga Fest, while regularly touring the U.S. Brownout's also served as a highly in-demand backing band for artists including Prince, Daniel Johnston, GZA and Bernie Worrell.
On their latest release, FEAR OF A BROWN PLANET on Fat Beats Records (May, 2018), Brownout gives the psych-funk treatment to Public Enemy classics.
