RADIO MOSCOW are a perfect example of the classic full-throttle power trio.
Though by no means devoid of nuance and detail, the first thing one notices
while standing in front of the band as they begin to unleash their stage
show, is the feeling of being blown back by a whirlwind of energy and
power, concocted by three guys locked in a groove. Led by Stratocaster
genius Parker Griggs, RADIO MOSCOW have carved their own sonic niche fusing
crunching, heavy Sabbath-style chords with fiery ‘Hendrixian’ solos and a
raw intensity that is addictive and captivating, also citing the likes of
Cream, Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin as further influences. Now, RADIO MOSCOW
are gearing up for an exciting new chapter in their career with the release
of the fifth studio album “New Beginnings” on Century Media Records.

Formed in 2003 by Parker Griggs in Ames, Iowa, the band has been based in
San Diego county, California, for several years now. Parker is joined by
Paul Marrone

on drums and bassist Anthony Meier. RADIO MOSCOW has released four studio
albums to date: “Radio Moscow” – produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach,
who introduced the band to Alive Natural Sound records, the label that has
released every record up until now – “Brain Cycles”, “The Great Escape of
Leslie Magnafuzz”, and “Magical Dirt”. Alive also released the early,
garage demos collection “3 and 3 Quarters”, and the live record, “Live in
California”, which New York Music Daily cited as the Best Heavy Psych Album
of 2016.

Since the live album was released, RADIO MOSCOW has made the leap to a
worldwide deal with Century Media Records, said Parker Griggs, “We couldn’t
be more stoked to be joining the Century Media family! When we met these
guys we spent hours nerding out on obscure classics from our favorite era
of rock ‘n’ roll (1965-1974)…. so we feel right at home!”

The first result of this new collaboration is “New Beginnings”, which
offers a powerful 10-track blues rock ride which was recorded at Lost Ark
Studio in San Diego with Mike Butler, produced by the band’s own Parker
Griggs, and mastered by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering. From
the bursting guitar licks of opening track “New Beginning” over to the road
dog anthem “Driftin'” and the Hendrix-like groove of “No One Knows Where
They’ve Been”, from the pounding “Pacing” to moody album closer “Dreams”,
RADIO MOSCOW present an authentic and electrifying mix of versatile guitar
play, the passionate raw howl of Parker Griggs and a tight, energetic
rhythm section.

Known as a brilliant live act, RADIO MOSCOW have toured and performed with
the likes of Graveyard, Witchcraft, Joe Bonamassa, Pentagram, the
Sheepdogs, Nebula, and Bang. They played the Up in Smoke tour in Europe
(with Colour Haze) which included an appearance on the legendary German
television program Rockpalast, where the band performed a set, played
acoustic and were interviewed. In 2016 they played the Ride Festival,
Desert Daze, Electric Funeral, End Hip End It, the Psycho California
festival, and as is only appropriate, have headlined shows in both St.
Petersburg and Moscow in Russia. Also for “New Beginnings”, RADIO MOSCOW
will tour internationally, US dates were completed in June/July 2017, UK
dates are confirmed for August, and a full European tour kicks off
September 26th, 2017. So if you are looking for the fine art of rock, RADIO
MOSCOW will bring waves of fuzzy, hard rocking riffs and sweaty, cranked up
blues right to you!
