Los Angeles, CA – April 18, 2016 –Rock band RadioBlack is thrilled to announce that they will be releasing their debut full length album on May 12th, 2017. The album features single “Nothing Is Permanent,” which originally premiered via Substream Magazine. For more information or to pre-order the album, please visit: www.radioblackband.com.
“We put every ounce of ourselves into this album, and we couldn’t be more excited to release it. We tried to make a real record – not just a few singles with a bunch of filler in between. We wanted this to be a record you can pop in your car, push play, and just drive. No destination necessary, just you and the music,” lead singer TJ Courtney shares.”We grew up doing this with our favorite albums and did our best to capture that spirit. We also wanted to pay tribute to the 90’s bands that got us so excited about music when we were young. I think it’s rare nowadays for a band to strip its influences down to the ones that grabbed you and made you love music for the first time.“
RadioBlack is lead by singer/guitarist TJ Courtney, whose vocals and melodic songwriting blend grunge and 90’s inspired alternative rock. With drummer Derek Gledhill (founding member of Smile Empty Soul) and bassist Hayato Takano, a seasoned touring player, the ensemble makes for a powerhouse trio.
Prior to this new line-up, TJ recorded tracks at the Foo Fighters’ private recording facility, Studio 606, with producer John “Lou” Lousteau and a lineup of studio players including Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), and Mick Murphy (My Ruin, Chevy Metal). The production team was rounded out by Fireball Ministry front-man and “Sound City” documentary producer Jim Rota, and Brad Smith of Blind Melon. The recordings have since evolved into Radioblack’s debut album – a head-banging and energetic collection of tracks.
