Can you tell us about your new album? What was the inspiration?
Our debut album is 10 new tracks, spanning various genres, with 7 single releasing monthly through May-November and the remaining 3 tracks dropping in December.
What are your musical influences?
Queens of the Stone Age, Highly Suspect, The Vines, The White Stripes and basically any grunge acts from the 90's.
Do you prefer performing live or recording?
Performing live, no questions asked!! Nothing beats that high. Recording is fun because you're making new music and its all exciting but theres nothing better than playing live.
What should we expect from your upcoming tour?
We haven't even announced the dates yet but these nest run of shows will easily be our wildest yet. We cant give away much but trust us, you wont want to miss them.
What is the story behind the band name?
We wanted a one word band name because they're cool and easier on the eyes. We saw the word 'Radical' somewhere and thought "lets chuck and S on that and were sorted". It was only a couple of months ago that we realised that Radicals are a molecule that contains at least one unpaired electron. So that's something?
How did the band come together?
Primary school music class (Myles + Brandon), high school music class (Nick + Brandon) and playing in local bands around the Shire (Lachy + the rest of the band).
What motivates you most when writing music?
Creating something that you enjoy is an incredible feeling, but creating something that other people enjoy is otherworldly. We say it all the time but its true, if even one person enjoys our music, we'll keep writing songs. The people that listen are what motivate us.
Which music/artists are you currently listening to?
Brandon - Eslabon Armado
Lachy - Dokken
Myles - Travis Scott
Nick - Daily J
What or who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?
Other Aussie bands and musicians making Australian rock music a force to be reckoned with!
If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?
We used to give the cliché answers of Foo Fighters, QOTSA, Limp Bizkit, etc. but honestly we've been playing shows and sharing the stage with some bands around NSW who have turned into our best mates. Bands like Deadshowws, Soda Simulator, Major Arcana and Tyrants. We're living the dream playing with these guys!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced in the music industry?
Asshole sound guys. Where do they get off?
What's next, for you?
Who knows. We'll keep writing music and playing shows wherever we can. Hopefully people still enjoy the music and like seeing us play!
