Radkey – Rock & Roll Homeschool
Punk-rock trio Radkey have just dropped their newest music video for their track “Feed My Brain”. Watch the video premiering exclusively on mxdwn HERE. The song is off of the band’s 2016 full-length release Delicious Rock Noise.
“We have always been really proud of how this project turned out but it wasn’t released for reasons beyond our control,” states the band about the release. “So stoked that we can finally share it with you.”
Earlier this month, the band released their single, “Rock And Roll Homeschool”. Listen to the pummeling punk anthem, inspired by the band’s experience of being homeschooled their whole life, here. The track follows this year’s previous single releases for “St. Elwood” and “Basement”.
Radkey has had a busy year touring in support of their new music. On top of performing headline shows, the Missouri natives have toured with the likes of Jack White. The band is currently on a fall U.S. tour supporting British punk rock band The Damned, performing in major markets like New York City, Los Angeles, and more. Starting in November, the band will join Descendents for a string of tour dates. For more information on tour dates or to purchase tickets, visit Radkey’s website here. Radkey also partnered with MasterCard in January for its #StartSomethingPriceless campaign featuring SZA. The campaign included a docuseries that premiered on The Ellen DeGeneres Show while commercials aired during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards televised broadcast. Radkey joined five other artists on a cover of Bo Diddley’s “Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover,” the theme song for the campaign. Stream the “Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover” remix here.
As pre-teens growing up in small-town Saint Joseph, Mo., brothers Darrion “Dee,” Isaiah and Soloman Radke enrolled in rock ‘n’ roll high school as their ticket out of Nowheresville. The brothers played their first show opening for Fishbone in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. In 2013, the Cat & Mouse and Devil Fruit EPs took Radkey from sweaty backroom punk gigs to storming the UK’s Download Festival and Riotfest in the U.S. In 2015, Radkey enlisted Arctic Monkeys producer/mixer Ross Orton to producer their debut record, Delicious Rock Noise. The result was an across-the-board detonation of several shades of rock, punk and wild abandon – and riffs, riffs, riffs. Having kicked off 2018 with new music, Radkey’s sound has continued to expand and mature, reflected in the sleek guitar and growing bass on their new tracks “Not Smart,” “Basement” and “St. Elwood.” It’s a testament to the future of music, and the band is primed for rock and roll glory.
