Radkey will return to the UK in early 2019.

The Missouri-based rock trio have confirmed shows at London's Dingwalls, Manchester's Night People and the Globe in Cardiff on January 11, 12 and 13 respectively, with tickets for the shows on sale now, priced £10.00/£12.00 plus fees.

Radkey recently shared their pummeling punk anthem, Rock And Roll Homeschool, the latest in a string of singles released by the band this year, following Not Smart, Basement and St. Elwood. The tracks serve as their first new material since since the 2016 LP 'Delicious Rock Noise'. 

Isaiah Radke discussed the inspiration behind their latest track:

"I'm not sure how many people know this about us, but we were homeschooled… That’s one of the main reasons we had a ton of time to work on songwriting and play tons of video games. The only problem was that we started to feel pretty uncool having zero friends. We would constantly fantasize about getting out there, and what life would be like if we had gone to ‘real school.'"

In late October they'll join punk legends the Damned on their upcoming tour across North America, before linking up with Descendents for two shows in November, with a headlining show in between. 

Radkey Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Fri January 11 2019 - LONDON Dingwalls
Sat January 12 2019 - MANCHESTER Night People
Sun January 13 2019 - CARDIFF Globe

Photo: Rob Blackham Sometimes an album arrives from out of nowhere and knocks you off your feet. There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.
'We Wanted To Reach People on a Personal Level': Pijn Discuss The Genre-Defying Power Of 'Loss'
Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
