Better Luck Next Time (often shortened to BLNT) is an American pop punk band from Los Angeles, California. Their music is heavily influenced by American pop punk bands such as Blink-182, Green Day, and NOFX. They have played with and opened for such bands as New Found Glory, NOFX, Ellegarden, Allister, Mad Caddies, Slick Shoes and Authority Zero. They have toured Japan three times to date as well as playing countless shows in the United States. They are on the label World Records in the United States, InYa Face Records in Japan, and Enemy One Records in Brazil.


Formed in 2004, Better Luck Next Time has released two full-length albums, and made numerous compilation appearances. Their debut album "Third Time's A Charm" was engineered, recorded, and produced entirely by themselves in late 2005. It quickly caught the attention of InYa Face Records in Tokyo, Japan, who signed the band and released a self titled album in May 2006, which included the same tracks as their debut. A year later, the band headed overseas to headline "@United Vol. 2" in Shibuya, Japan at Club Quattro.

In September 2006, the band was chosen as one of the top 10 unsigned bands in California out of 2,500 by radio station KROQ in Los Angeles. In the mid 2007, the band was invited back to Japan to play one of the biggest events of the year, Punkspring 2007. They shared the stage with NOFX, New Found Glory, Jimmy Eat World, Allister, and Ellegarden.

Just months later, the follow-up to their debut, "Start From Skratch", was released in Japan on August 25. A co-headlining tour with Mad Caddies was put together in support of the record covering such areas of Japan as Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya. As with their first album, it was recorded and produced entirely by the band, and later taken to Scottsdale, Arizona where it was mixed by Ryan Greene at Crush Recording.

The band is now signed to World Records out of Los Angeles, California, who released their latest album in the United States called "Start From Skratch". A split album with the Italian band Melody Fall called "Hybrid" has recently been released in Japan on InYa Face Records.
