Remember that time when punk died? Nope. Because it didn’t happen. The cynics are wrong (if you haven’t figured it out, they usually are) and, if bands like Radkey keep popping up, we’ve got plenty to keep us going for a long time.

It’s a family affair for Radkey. The three brothers from Missouri are touring right now, managed by their father, to support their debut LP, Dark Black Makeup. That album, which came out this past August, is getting plenty of well-deserved heat. I think the title track speaks for itself:

You can grab the album right now at all of the usual outlets: iTunes and Amazon and check out the sweet vinyl on Music Glue.

Radkey is on tour right now, so check them out when they hit your town.
