Fire In The Radio
Fire In The Radio
Philadelphia-based Fire in the Radio will release their sophomore album New Air on May 5th via Wednesday Records. The album is the follow-up to their 2015 acclaimed record Telemetry. New Air finds the band pushing their unique brand of indie-punk in a fresh direction incorporating elements of new wave, grunge, and shoegaze drone into tightly crafted pop songs. The result is a notably darker effort than Telemetry, and proves to be the bands most ambitious and successful collection of songs to date. New Air was recorded at Gradwell House studios (Beach Slang, Into It. Over It.) and mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung). Fire in the Radio began work on New Air following significant touring in support of 2015’s Telemetry, which included performances at Gainesville, Florida’s FEST and Montreal’s Pouzza Fest.

"The Philadelphia scene has always been pretty vibrant; the rest of the world has just finally started to notice it. The past few years have seen everyone from The Menzingers and Beach Slang to Modern Baseball and Restorations impress with wildly original albums…Fire In The Radio is the latest Philly band to keep the streak alive." - New Noise Magazine
Hound
Hound
Remember Sabbath, Atomic Rooster and the Metallica that brought you Kill ‘Em All? You remember that sound? It’s called hard rock and Hound are bringing it back!

The trio, comprised of Perry Shall, Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists) and Colin McGinniss (None More Black), is releasing their debut album, Out of Time, on SRA Records on November 28th.

Since 2011 Hound has given Philadelphians a reason to grow their hair long and put their jean jackets on, and now they’re unleashing their heavy riffs on the rest of the world. So make room on that record shelf, clear some space in the gray matter between your ears and turn it up!
Three Man Cannon
Three Man Cannon
Playing together as a band since their teenage years, Three Man Cannon have come a long way since the initial release of their debut LP The Sound. The Fury. in 2010, both sonically and physically, making the trek from Scranton to Philadelphia. The band released a split with fellow Scranton natives Lee Corey Oswald in 2013, the precursor to their final finished LP Pretty Many People. Mixing their old proclivity toward catchy punk-influenced indie rock with a new darker, heavier sound, Pretty Many People creates a new vibe for Three Man Cannon, bringing the K Records era of indie rock into the Philadelphia punk scene.

Through the slow groove and occasional drone, all the band members lend vocals over the course of the record, keeping the melody light and moving, stringing together lines of love and loss and laziness. With words instantly both poetic and relatable, the band's lyrical style perfectly complements the delicate guitar work and constant, echoing groove created by the rhythm section. Taking an already unique sound and giving it some weight, Three Man Cannon have hit their mark with Pretty Many People. It's a record for basement punks and 90s snobs who want to dance while contemplating their own finite existence. A record both unifying and thought provoking, Pretty Many People borrows the best parts of indie and punk rock, making an immediate impression with their second full length record and delivering a unique sound you never knew you needed to hear.
