On May 12, 2015, Philadelphia’s Fire in the Radio will release its new record entitled “Telemetry” on Wednesday Records.
Work on the record, which contains eleven tracks, started last year when Fire in the Radio spent time at Inner Ear studios in Washington, DC, with engineer Don Zientara (Fugazi) doing a series of demos. The demos turned into the foundation for a full-length record that was recorded in the summer of 2014 at Miner Street Studios in Philadelphia (The Menzingers, Restorations) with producer Thom Flowers (Lagwagon) and engineer Matt Schimelfenig (Cayetana). The record was mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, and mastered by Alan Douches in New York. The band, who derives their name from the Charles Bukowski poem “Regard Me," has a unique sound that has been appropriately described as an amalgamation of Jawbreaker, Tigers Jaw, Weezer and Title Fight.
The "Telemetry" album art features a photograph from Don Hamerman's "Found Baseball" series, which has been prominently featured in Juxtapoz magazine and NPR.
Absolutepunk.net is running an exclusive feature of a film trailer detailing the recording of the record at Miner Street.
The trailer was shot by Brandon Dexter. The “Telemetry” video trailer can be viewed here:
