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”.
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. Their debut album “Radio Moscow” was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
“New Beginnings” 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.
