In addition, the band is in the process of putting the finishing touches on their new record, titled “Drug Life.” The record was recorded at Gradwell House Recordings (Into It. Over It., Beach Slang, Foxing) and mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung). The record, which the band collectively describes as its darkest effort to date, is set for release in early 2017.
"The Philadelphia scene has always been pretty vibrant; the rest of the world has just finally started to notice it. The past few years have seen everyone from The Menzingers and Beach Slang to Modern Baseball and Restorations impress with wildly original albums. Based on their stellar debut, Telemetry—released in May on Wednesday Records—Fire In The Radio is the latest Philly band to keep the streak alive." - New Noise Magazine
“With the hooks of Gaslight Anthem, The leads of The Menzingers, and the melodies of classic melodic punk, Fire In The Radio combines their elements to form their new album, Telemetry....Fire In The Radio might just be the catchiest band in their genre. Their melodic songs are filled with powerful riffs and emotional vocals. Telemetry is a testimony to Fire In The Radio’s strength to write indulgently catchy songs that will never lose their luster." - PunkNews.org
“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 into an exceptionally catchy, well-written record, Telemetry. Think Samiam, late-period Jawbreaker, even Saves The Day." - Half Cloth
