One of our favorite bands that we've highlighted in recent years is RadioBlack. Now, after a long wait, comes the band's debut album. Recorded at Dave Grohl's infamous Studio 606, the album features an array of impressive players in Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne), Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction), and Mick Murphy (My Ruin, Chevy Metal). Not too shabby. As for the record itself, the trio kick some serious ass. The sound is as fearless as it is unapologetic. You can hear modern rock soundings throughout, and is a nice step for the outfit.
“We put every ounce of ourselves into this album, and we couldn’t be more excited to release it," the band says. "We tried to make a real record - not just a few singles with a bunch of filler in between. We wanted this to be a record you can pop in your car, push play, and just drive. No destination necessary, just you and the music. We grew up doing this with our favorite albums and did our best to capture that spirit. We also wanted to pay tribute to the 90’s bands that got us so excited about music when we were young. I think its rare nowadays for a band to strip its influences down to the ones that grabbed you and made you love music for the first time.
“We crafted the lyrics so that they had personal significance and meaning, while still being relatable. Lyrics that come from within and not from external sources are rare today as well, and that’s what we’ve always connected with.”
