Comic books, boredom, rock n roll., video games, misfits, Ramons, Weezer, the middle of America, the middle of Nowhere, Nirvana, pizza, Dad’s record collection, skateboards, afropunk, more pizza, a quest to end false rock….

That, in a nutshell, is Radkey. Today, the band arrive with their sleek new track, “Not Smart,” premiere via Clash Magazine.

Today it was also announce that Radkey have been selected by MasterCard for their massive Grammy promotion, #StartSomethingPriceless, which features Radkey as an artist to watch alongside Grammy nominated best new artist, SZA. The first video for the campaign premiered on the Ellen show yesterday.

With groundbreaking moments on the horizon, the band explained to Clash  the personal message of “Not Smart: “It’s about what it’s like to give up everything to chase your dreams for so long that you don’t even realize that you’re not a kid anymore. Even though you don’t feel any different than you did when you first started the band.  It’s about waking up and accepting that you’re starting to feel the pain. That you’re not invincible…”

The Brothers Radke (the band name is a spin on their shared last name), comprised of 24 year-old guitarist and Danzig dead-ringer vocalist, Dee Radke, 22 year-old bassist Isaiah and 20 year-old drummer, Solomon, have honed their sound into the rare kind of power-riffing rock n’ roll phenomenon that literally explodes out of the speakers from the open moments of the track. Listen to it here!
