Red City Radio
After forming the band in 2007, they had to fight their way out of the Sooner State. They've released EPs and LPs with independent labels here and there, but their big chance came recently in 2015, when they got an offer from newly-formed Vagrant/BMG imprint, Staple Records. They put fort their strongest effort yet, a self-titled album that blew us all away. Two months after its release, the label folded and the band was left once again to fend for itself.
For a lot of bands, the story would end there, but this quartet forged ahead and did tours in support of New Found Glory, Strung Out, Less Than Jake, Anti-Flag, and more. It was also boom-time overseas, as the band's shows doubled in size and they were invited to join many of the big outdoor festivals in Europe. As bassist Jonathan Knight put it, “I can't say we have ever considered throwing in the towel, but we have always felt like an underdog.”
Now after years of triumph in the face of the odds, we have the hyper-melodic 5-song EP, SkyTigers. When asked about the title, frontman Garrett says it means, “To be the absolute best version of yourself that you can be. That's what being a SkyTiger is. To be great and do great. Because you are great.” Far fucking out, man. Kinda makes you wanna... be a SkyTiger, right?!? Well, here's your big chance. The band has a new EP coming on Red Scare and it'll be followed up with a big tour in support of The Lawrence Arms. Bad luck be damned, 2018 is already shaping up to be a banner year for Red City Radio and we expect them to keep on surprising the scene.
