The RT’s (formerly The Rad Trads) w/special guest Dawna
Presented by WCBE
Brooklyn-based five-piece The RT’s (formerly the Rad Trads) are known for their eclectic take on rock n’ roll, which mixes punk rock energy, horn drenched soul, and precise musicianship with a lighthearted but sincere delivery. It’s a sound and approach that has come sharply into focus on the band’s latest release, See You Again, out now on Wombat Squad Records, produced and mixed by Chris Peck, engineered by Reed Black, and mastered by J3P0.
The band spent the majority of 2019 touring in support of their sophomore release On Tap — a world tour which totaled over 80,000 miles and included shows in direct support of Dr. Dog, Modest Mouse, Lake Street Dive, BAILEN, and The Motet, with dates in China, Europe, and across the USA from Alaska to Florida. Along the way they began writing and performing new material, and the folkiness of their last release began to morph into the hard edged, anthemic, and frequently poppy sound of See You Again.
“The Rad Trads are the pizza of bands. You’re always in the mood for it,” – Rachael Price (Lake Street Dive)
“Their live performances can turn into a Saturday night church meeting, fueled by the fact that all five of them can sing. You’re gonna love these guys.” — KUTX 98.9, Austin
“The Rad Trads perform music that’s a confluence of excellent musicianship, deft writing, and one wicked sense of humor.” — PopMatters
