Honestly, this is good stuff. A little New Mexican Disaster Squad (coincidence?), a little Smoking Popes, a little Copyrights. Simple, digestible and filling pop punk.

Get Rad West Caost/Upper Midwest Tour Dates

Get Rad has taken off for a 2 week West-US tour and you can check out their Dying Scene Shows page for the dates.  Unfortunately, the one sided LP/EP “What the Fuck Happened to Common Sense” wasn’t ready in time to be available on the tour, BUT the band should have the CD version of their next full album on Hyperrealist called “I Can Always Live” with them.



Get Rad releasing “What The Fuck Happened To Common Sense” LP/EP

get-rad-what-the-fuck-happened-to-common-seneseUnderground Communique Records has announced that they will be releasing an 8.5 song one sided 12″ EP titled “What The Fuck Happened To Common Sense” for hardcore-punk act Get Rad.  No official release date yet other than “sometime this Fall” but here’s the statement from Underground Communique:

The band brings what I believe as their best recorded material to date, a recording finally matching the power of seeing the band live.  Originally 3 of these songs were going to go on the Sweet Cobra split 7″ but that idea is sidelined right now until Sweet Cobra finishes writing new songs. That split will definitely still happen, just not yet…so we decided to combine the whole recording session into one EP instead and solve the problem of having songs for a split and a separate 7″ but no split band and no one to release a separate 7″.

Get Rad has recently finished a different full-length album titled “I Can Always Live”, which they are releasing on Hyperrealist when they finish their tour (fans can pick up copies of the album right now if they catch the band on the road).
