Rad Payoff continues to be one of the most cursed bands in the biz. Maybe it's because they use words like "BIZ". In March 2014, they released their debut LP, The Good, The Rad & The Ugly on Let's Pretend Records, as well as a 7" single on No Breaks Records. After a short tour and some much needed rest, the band is heading back into the studio in January to record their second LP, Slow & Weird.
"RAD PAYOFF make extremely cynical, joyously engaging, no-frills indie punk. The Chicago quartet was formed in 2010 by friends Jason Smith and Jonathan Olson, (singer/songwriters for the eclectic, Dwarves-inspired SASS DRAGONS and equally-eclectic, folk-punk ensemble ELEPHANT GUN respectively.) With bassist Ryan Scaccia of WOODEN PLANES and drummer Mike Oberlin of TREASURE FLEET, the band creates intense, sophisticated rock that is as striking as it is manic." [No Breaks]
