Fire in the Radio release Telemetry, tour (2015)

Philadelphia’s Fire in the Radio released their new record titled Telemetry earlier this week. Half Cloth is currently hosting an exclusive stream of the record and had the following to say “A melodic punk supergroup of sorts, Fire In The Radio are a band of punk and hardcore lifers who’ve pooled their resumes into an exceptionally catchy, well-written record, Telemetry. Think Samiam, late-period Jawbreaker, even Saves The Day.”
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.
