Radio Moscow Announces Summer Tour

Iowa’s psychedelic blues rock trio Radio Moscow will kick off the first leg of their summer tour in Des Moines at Dam to Dam. The 18-date outing takes the band through the southwest and west coast before returning back to Des Moines to perform at the 80/35 Music Festival July 4th weekend. Following the June dates, the band will head back into the studio with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys to begin work on their new album. Currently, the bands’ self-titled debut on Alive Records (also produced and engineered by Dan Auerbach) is available in stores now.

Radio Moscow is led by 22-year-old guitarist/drummer/singer/songwriter Parker Griggs. Originally cutting his teeth playing garage punk, the bands’ sound is channeled through the blues, with experimental breakdowns, unpredictable tempo changes, crazy rave-ups and fuzzed out psychedelic guitar work; the result is a truly distinctive sound.

"Marrying the bluesy psychedelic fervor of Cream with the big, precise fretwork of Jimi Hendrix, Radio Moscow relish in distortion and grittiness." – Spin.com

“The Black Keys love their `70s classic rock, and they know what it smells like. Member Dan Auerbach helps Ames, Iowa, psychedelic blues-rockers Radio Moscow tap into their love of Jimi Hendrix and the Allman Brothers on this debut effort, which also delves into country and East Indian sounds.” – MTV.com

“Two dudes from Ames, Iowa have a psychedelic-garage-punk-blues-rock band. Ho hum, right? Uh, NO—this is an awesome record… this is fun and slutty and cool, I’m in favor of it all the way.” – Popmatters
