The Radio Dept. announce North American tour kicking off Valentine’s Day 2017

The Radio Dept.

The Radio Dept. have announced North American tour dates beginning February 14, 2017 in support of their politically-charged fourth LP ‘Running Out Of Love,’ which will be out Oct 21, 2016 via Labrador Records.

The 20 date North American tour sees the Malmö, Sweden based duo of Johan Duncanson and Martin Carlberg return for their first stateside shows since the release of 2010’s ‘Clinging To A Scheme,’ appearing at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom, Washington DC’s Black Cat, Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, Boston’s Brighton Music Hall and many more. A full list of dates can be found below – tickets are on sale now.

‘Running Out Of Love’ is an album about life in Sweden in 2016 moving in the wrong direction:  politically, intellectually, morally. It’s about the impatience that turns into anger, hate and ultimately withdrawal and apathy when love for the world and our existence begins to falter.

The album features lead single Swedish Guns, a haunting takedown of the Swedish arms industry. The track was revealed last month and quickly went #1 HypeM and began charting on the Spotify Viral Chart and gaining wide critical praise. Listen to the single via Soundcloud below.
