[0PT-0UT] is a violent, machine-rock band from Norfolk, VA.
Sensing a strong need for putting sheer brutality back into electronic music, Gabriel Perry (Hindu Pez, Deathhouse Blues, Red This Ever, We Never Sleep) and Matt McClure created [0PT-0UT]. The band has made it their goal to create the most sincere, vicious machine-rock available, holding modern music in pure contempt.
While being extremely volatile, raw and visceral on record and in the studio, [0PT-0UT] is an even tougher beast live, combining an extreme stage presence, an impressive projected video that plays through performance, theatrical makeup, heavy guitars, deep synths, and pounding drum machines.
Having released their debut, self-titled EP in August, 2011 and completed tours with synth/rock band Red This Ever, and electro-industrial fiends Gutter Gloss, [0PT-0UT] is currently in the studio working on their first full length LP, due out 2013.

"With its styles and themes grounded in the genre's roots, [0PT-0UT] would make be a welcome addition to any Industrial Metal fan's collection. I look forward to hearing more from them soon." - Carson Ball - ballweb.org (Feb 21, 2012)
"The next act was [0PT-0UT]. These guys had the whole place slamming with their original material and their covers of “So What” and “1996″ – two songs that take some great big brass ones to do in the first place. They owned it, start to finish." - Kevin Sonney - www.sonney.com (Oct 01, 2011)
"The production is crisp with the right balance of corrosive edges and pristine sheen, and the musical style is direct and adversarial, holding to the band’s name of opting out of the commonplaces of the genre. While the overabundance of throaty aggression and absence of melody in the vocals may be off-putting to some, this is still a band in its infancy and there is much promise for new avenues to be explored on future releases. If nothing else, those with a taste for industrial rock that punishes the speakers and the eardrums will enjoy this first taste of [0PT-0UT]." - Ilker Yücel, ReGen Magazine regenmag.com/ (Dec 05, 2011)
"[0pt-0ut] gets me excited – I mean all-out need-to-tell-someone excited. A lot of bands come and go through the industrial scene, the majority of them being forgettable four-to-the-floor fashion shows. [0pt-0ut] brings back the beautiful things that “the scene” forgot about when dance music took over. They are the shameless, unadulterated kick in the ass this scene needs. Do not pass up the opportunity to listen to this EP." - Bill Land, rvafreaks.com (Apr 25, 2011)
