Fire in the Radio hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band's sound is unique, but has been appropriately described as an amalgamation of Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring, Weezer, and Superchunk. In other words, they are destined to be one of your favorite bands. Last year, Fire In The Radio spent time at Inner Ear studios in Washington, DC, with engineer Don Zientera (Fugazi, Jawbox) doing a series of demos. The demos turned into the foundation for a full-length record that was recorded in the summer of 2014, at Miner Street Studios in Philadelphia (The Menzingers, Restorations) with producer Thom Flowers (Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, The Ataris). The record was mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids) in Vancouver and mastered by Alan Douches in New York.
Their new album 'Telemetry' is set for release on May the 12th 2015 on Wednesday Records. Recorded at Miner Street Studios in the bands home city of Philadelphia, with the help of producer Thom Flowers (Bad Astronaut, Lagwagon) and engineer Matt Schimelfenig (Cayetana), the albums eleven tracks were then mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids) at Rain City Recorders Vancouver and mastered by Alan Douches in New York.
Fire In The Radio's Richard Carbone (Guitar, Vocals), Adam Caldwell (Drums), Jon Miller (Guitar, Vocals) and Ed Olsen (Bass) took their band's name from German-American writer, often known for his portrayal of the seedier and more mundane aspects of life, Charles Bukowski's poem 'Regard Me'. And the band has also used an example of American life captured in art for their new albums artwork, featuring a photograph from Don Hamerman's 'Found Baseball' series. The perfect reflection to the albums overall feel, it encapsulates a dissolving emotional and all American spirit that remains somehow upbeat.
