The long awaited debut EP from Orlando’s newest underground rock and rollers Radicalized Youth is finally out. Recorded and mixed by the band than mastered by Kramer(Shimmy Disc). Firing out six songs in just sixteen minutes this collection of songs is all killer no filler. These Rad Boys have been crafting this debut for sometime in between once a month engagements in Orlando. Sources tell me they are hard at work on the next EP. But you can celebrate with all the other woke folk on the 26th of this month at the official release show taking place at St. Matthew’s Tavern in Orlando.
At the show they will be screening the brand new music video for their single Majoring in Nothing shot on location in Orlando,FL with the expert help of Zampano Films. Then they will perform a live set followed by bathroom babies themselves Tight Genes. As if that wasn’t enough already the surf monsters from Alabama Daikaiju are back in town and will proceed to burn the place down at the end of the night.
This year we are back for another International Cassette Store Day. We have hand-crafted a special artisanal mixtape overstuffed with non-GMO organic hot butter jams. Look for it October 8th 2016 in a Cassette Store near you. If they don’t have it tell them their ass better call somebody. Limited edition of 100 cassettes available in stores & online.
Featuring songs by:
Model T and the Shivs(Bangor,ME)
The Grizzly Atoms(Orlando,FL)
Martian Conspiracy Theory(Selinsgrove,PA)
How’s it flowing freaks? It’s now September which is always nuts because I happened to know an awful lot of Virgos and Libras. So the celebrations never seem to end which is always a fitting way to close out a hot and sweaty Summer.
Speaking of things coming to a close the boys in Radicalized Youth are just about ready to unleash the ‘Extended Play’ EP on the world this 9/11. So look for a tasty streaming track in the next few days from us. Plus the release party is happening at Anti False Flag Fest here in Orlando. Just $9 gets you the whole day of bands, vegan & non-vegan grub, Beer from the keg plus some Scared Owls swag. The Rad Boys will be there slinging Shirts and Tapes. Come out and help us celebrate why dank memes melt steel beams.
In other news we will be participating in Cassette Store Day again this year. We will be releasing our Godless America Mixtape Vol. 3 for the occasion. Stay tuned to find out just what freaks will be in the mix this time.
We’ve been slacking on updates for the past week or two mainly because I’ve been slammed putting the final touches on our next release Radicalized Youth ‘Extended Play’ EP. On top of that we just wrapped on the music video for ‘Majoring in Nothing’ off the tape. We got together with Zampano Films for the project we all had blast making the video. Although a few days ago Dusty (a.k.a. the great Zampano) was a victim of a break-in which lead to him losing many of tools needed to create including thousands of dollars in cameras and lenses. They like most people weren’t thinking about things like renter’s insurance and the like until something tragic like this happens. They have a gofundme up right now and it’s already raised quite a bit of scratch so we urge you donate if you can. Luckily our footage was not lost in heist but due to the loss of computers for editing we can’t really say when the world will get to see the final product.
So running a little behind with the update this week. My schedule just changed around so I’m still getting used to this new groove. Not to mention one of the cats I share a house with passed the other day. I had the unfortunate task of pronouncing him gone. Which is never a good way to start your morning so I’m still kinda dealing with that in my own way. Anyone that knows me knows how much I love the kitties so it’s never easy losing a friend be that human or animal. R.I.P. Bernard “Barn Yard”
On a lighter note this is the weekend I’ve personally been putting a lot of planning into thinking up rituals and other funny and strange things to have or friends and fam do during the final day of shooting for Radicalized Youth‘s first music video. We have partnered with Zampano Films to put together a real feast for the eyes. This Saturday there will be an Illuminati themed BBQ in Orlando open to anyone savvy enough to figure out how to get the address. This will be for a song off their anticipated debut E.P. ‘Extended Play’ due out 9/11 on Godless America. Then keep an eye out for them around Florida in Fall/Winter. You’ll have to wait till Spring 2017 before they spread their wings on the open road.
As far as events this week since I got a late jump on this I’m gonna opt out this week cause I kinda hit where you should be in that last update.
Clocking in a little late this week but what can you do. We have reached peak Summer as the temperatures climb so do we up and out. Our friends and fam Room Full of Strangers will be part of the special features of an upcoming documentary Boy Howdy: The Story of Creem Magazine. The kickstarter is almost over they are fully funded but there are still some stretch goals you could get in on. All very exciting stuff. Also in Strangers news they are gearing up to record their next record with Frank Secich up in Youngstown,OH. They will be doing a few dates on the way out there then laying down new tracks for the new record.
Speaking of exciting Summer time fun Radicalized Youth are hosting an Illuminati themed BBQ for the final day of shooting for their upcoming debut music video. This will be for a song off their first EP due out on Godless America this September. So if you live in or around Orlando and want to be in a music video and generally just get down. You should totally click going to this event.
Also hitting the road this month our favorite beer soaked fam Tight Genes are hitting the East Coast. These bathroom babies will be tearing up a shithole near you for the next two weeks. So if you are in one of these affected towns do yourself a favor and see this band.
So we are a day late with this update but whatever. We had a blast at the Tittie Thyme event last Saturday thanks to them and everyone that came out to the Pop Up Shop and the Show. Gonna try and do more things like that to get out there and sling the tapes to the people. We also made a physical catalog for Summer 2016 preview below. If you order online we’ll throw one of these in with your order.
Jon David of Evil Virgins has started what some might call a impossible feat. He is attempting to record 270 songs one a day for the next nine months he is already 20 songs in. You should follow along on his bandcamp. We are in talks about putting this into some sort of physical release but nothing is set in stone just yet. But you should help cheer him on cause if he completes it that will be a real triumph.
How you freaks doing? it’s that time again. Time for all you to get up to date on all the goings on over here at HQ. This week we will be part of the Rainbow Fish Double Feature / Tittie Thyme’s 11th Release. We will be posted up at Stardust Coffee & Video from 6pm-10-pm on Saturday the 23rd. We will we slinging all the tapes & records we have in stock plus some rando stuff we got laying around.
