Biography

ROCK N ROLL RADIO are an award-winning quartet that formed in Seoul, South Korea in 2011 and quickly began attracting attention with their infectious brand of dance-rock. By 2012, the group were already earning invites to local large-scale outdoor festivals like the Ssamzie Sound Festival and the Korea Live Music Festival – an impressive feat considering they had yet to release any music. Summer and fall of 2013 saw them gracing the stages at more Korean fests including Green Plugged Festival, Jisan World Rock Festival, and Grand Mint Festival and created excitement for the release of ROCK N ROLL RADIO’s full-length debut, “Shut Up and Dance.” Issued in October 2013, the offering’s 14 cuts are brimming with a highly danceable blend of rock, post-punk, and pop. “Shut Up and Dance” was met with praise from Korean music fans and critics. The album helped ROCK N ROLL RADIO capture top place in December 2013 at the Hello Rookie finals, a competition that highlights Korea’s top up-and-coming bands. And in February 2014, ROCK N ROLL RADIO won “Rookie of the Year” at the 2014 Korean Music Awards. They were also nominated for “Modern Rock Album of the Year” and “Modern Rock Song of the Year” at the ceremony. That March saw the act making their first foray overseas for shows in the United States at the renowned South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Texas and CAAMFest in California. They returned stateside in October 2014 for appearances at New York’s famed CMJ Music Marathon and the Los Angeles and San Francisco editions of Culture Collide. Prior to the latter event, LA Weekly praised ROCK N ROLL RADIO and labeled them one of the “Top 5 Bands to See at This Year's Culture Collide.” In 2015, ROCK N ROLL RADIO just finished their first France tour beginning with an invitational showcase at the MIDEM Conference in Cannes. They have been added as the headliner for the upcoming V-ROX International Festival in Vladivostok, Russia. The band is currently playing numerous shows, and also preparing a new album at the moment.
