FIRE IN THE RADIO RELEASING SERIES OF “WES ANDERSON-STYLE” WEBISODES LEADING UP TO THE RELEASE OF NEW LP, ‘TELEMETRY’, OUT MAY 12; BAND PLAYING CANADIAN DATES WITH KNAPSACK

In anticipation of the May 12 release of Fire in the Radio’s new record “Telemetry”, the Philly Indie rock band is releasing a series of interconnected “webisodes” featuring new songs off the album, the first of which (“Crickets”) is premiering on _Substream Magazine_.

The band tells Substream, “(We) have made a series of short video episodes that depict the dark comedic account of fictional character Donald C., a drummer who is struggling to find a more prominent role in his band (and in life). Each video is soundtracked by one of the songs off ‘Telemetry.’ When viewed together, the videos serve as a charming, Wes Anderson-style short film.”

Fire In The Radio will support record with a pair of Canadian dates supporting Knapsack. This will include a performance at this year’s annual Pouzza Fest in Montreal. The dates are as follows:

May 16 – Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto (w/ Knapsack)

May 17 – Pouzza Fest, Montreal (w/ Knapsack)

Work on “Telemetry”, which contains eleven tracks, started last year when Fire in the Radio spent time at Inner Ear studios in Washington, DC, with engineer Don Zientara (Fugazi) 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) and engineer Matt Schimelfenig (Cayetana). The record was mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, and mastered by Alan Douches in New York. The band, who derives their name from the Charles Bukowski poem “Regard Me,” has a unique sound that has been appropriately described as an amalgamation of Jawbreaker, Tigers Jaw, Weezer and Title Fight.

A film trailer detailing the recording of the record at Miner Street was shot by Brandon Dexter. The “Telemetry” video trailer can be viewed here.

Line-up: Richard Carbone (vocals, guitar), Adam Caldwell (drums), Jon Miller (vocals, guitar) and Ed Olsen (bass).
