Lights Out! was launched as one of the original rock bands at Big Star Studios in Snoqualmie, WA, in 2013. Tyler Kinnaman (guitar, vocals), a founding member, was joined later that year by Jonny Bechtol (bass) and Dylan Scott (keyboards) under the tutelage of Davey French of Everclear.
Willem Kuhn (drums, whistle) joined the band in 2016, and Bella Mariani (guitar, vocals) joined the band in the fall of 2018.
Lights Out! has performed at numerous locations in the Seattle area and the Pacific Northwest. The band plays original songs and a diverse catalog of rock covers from bands such as Nirvana, The Clash, blink-182, The Beatles, Green Day, and The Who (playlist of sample covers is available on Spotify).
The band released its first EP, "Break In," in October 2017 and its second EP, "Dumb in the Summer," in August 2018 with producer Dan McInerney. Lights Out!'s first full-length album, "Thrilling Detail," will be released in 2020. The first track, "Natural Disaster," is streaming now on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and the Lights Out! website.
