  • Lyrics
  • Breathe Carolina is an American electronic rock musical duo from Denver, Colorado, composed of David Schmitt and Kyle Even. This is the first single from their third studio album Hell Is What You Make It, which was made available for streaming via MTV Buzzworthy on June 13, 2011, and for digital download the following day.
  • The song was one of the first that the duo recorded for the album with their producer Ian Kirkpatrick. Kyle Evan explained the song's meaning in an interview with Alternative Addiction: "It's about the end of the party, seen through our eyes. 'Blackout' definitely reflects some of the wild nights we've had as band."
