TVD Premiere: Jack the Radio, Badlands

“Growing up I always looked at vinyl and a record player as a hub or focal point in our home. It was a social spot in our house for friends and family to gather and enjoy each other’s company and share music. It had purpose. Like you’d go to the refrigerator for food, you’d go to the record player for music.

Listening to a record is also an experience. There is something very soothing and valuable to stepping through the process of gently taking vinyl out of the sleeve, seeing the grooves, placing the needle down, and studying an album cover and liner notes while you listen. A lot of that is lost today with personal mobile devices being the primary listening method for a lot of people—which is a big reason we wanted to press Badlands on vinyl.”
George Hage

North Carolina quintet Jack the Radio deliver dynamic roots rock on new LP Badlands.

We have the pleasure of premiering an exclusive stream of the full album ahead of its release date on October 20th. The 12 song LP is a powerful mix of swampy, country rock and soaring, indie sensibilities, providing a balance of tough yet heartfelt musical vibes. Think Spoon meets Springsteen at the mechanical bull championship. Their effortless genre-hopping between bluesy, Southern pop and hard-edged Americana has mass appeal written all over it, positioning them alongside stadium mainstays such as Mumford & Sons and Kings of Leon.

Jack the Radio is pressing a limited run of bone white and electric blue vinyl for the Badlands release, and has also collaborated with a local North Carolina brewing company on the Jack the Radio Badland Black Rye IPA to celebrate the record—both of which is sure to give a taste of the band’s freewheeling spirit.
