Biography

Killradio named their band as a personal statement against those who have usurped the airwaves for personal and financial gain instead of respecting it as a source for ALL people to spread information and music to the masses. They are leading the fight to return this medium to its' the rightful owners…the people. Hurling political lyrical themes into the crossfire of classic punk rock music and alternative rock with a dash of hip hop rhythm, Killradio are a fresh force to be reckoned with in the contemporary world of aggressive sounds. Not of the "Sunday Driver" approach to songwriting that has taken over too much of today's underground, Killradio churn out fast paced tempos with vocals stylings of matching velocity, creating sobering tones for lovers of high octane compositions.

" [...] Since people seem to interpret our name as NOT wanting to be on the radio they are wrong.We want to be on every radio, we want to take back the radio!
