Garage punk trio Radkey will be releasing their first studio album, Dark Black Makeup, on their very own Little Man Records on August 21st of this year.
Radkey produced Dark Black Makeup under Ross Orton, who has also produced for the Arctic Monkeys. It’s a 13-track project full of both new material and some older tracks as well. You can go ahead and preorder the album in 180 colored vinyl in a bundle along with an exclusive band t-shirt.
The band has already released the audio for the title track on their website and YouTube page. It’s a raw, unrelenting song that has us unbelievably excited for the whole album. Listen to “Dark Black Makeup” right here:
The Missouri-born brothers have been making strides in the punk rock scene for a few years now, opening for bands like Fishbone and Titus Andrunicus and performing at major festivals like SXSW and Coachella. They’re also set to play at both Fun Fun Fun Fest and Riot Fest later this year. In addition to a host of raw, powerful material like “Romance At Dawn,” “Cat And Mouse,” and “Out Here In My Head,” the band has also produced an incredible cover of Faith No More’s “Digging the Grave,” which will also be featured on the album.
