Butchers Blind formed in 2009 in Bellerose, New York. Pete Mancini, Paul Cianciaruso, Brian Reilly, and Christopher Smith came together through mutual friends and a shared love of music.
In 2011, they signed with Paradiddle Records, and released two critically acclaimed LP’s: Play For The Films (2011), and Destination Blues (2013). The albums garnered the band glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world. Constant live shows and regional touring have cemented the band’s reputation as a solid live act. After releasing Thursday Girl b/w Mystery (2014), the band signed with Electric Giant Productions and released A Place in America (2015). The EP made several year-end lists, and saw one review published in My Heart Sings The Harmony, a book by noted rock critic Jason Warburg. In 2017 the band announced they would be on indefinite hiatus.
