Punk rock from Oklahoma City rarely gets talked about, but the guys in Red City Radio have been around and kicking ass since 2007. The band has just put out their first release on Red Scare, which will be their second EP, to go along with two split EPs and a trio of full-length albums. The EP is available digitally, although the accompanying 12″ vinyl will not be out until May. Such is life.
The new RCR EP is called SkyTigers, and the cover art is simply … well, just look at it!
In celebration of the EP’s release, the band put together a video for the lead single, “Rebels,” and we’re happy to premiere it here for you. We’re also happy to report that the song absolutely bangs.
Bassist Jonathan Knight told us a bit about how the video came together. “We went out last fall with our buds in Less Than Jake, and brought our buddy Nick along with us to capture our little circus antics on the road. What resulted was a cool little glimpse into Red City Radio on tour, and a fun video for ‘Rebels!'”
Garrett Dale, who provides those sweet vocals, wanted to talk about the video and the track as well. “Now, I’m not here to tell you what Rock & Roll is,” said Dale. “But I can sure tell you what it isn’t: and it has nothing to do with being a jerk or a bully.
