In less than two years Radio Fallout went from being a brand new alternative rock act to headlining festivals, signing publishing deals, touring the Midwest, and playing the premier venues in the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas.
In the wake of the worldwide economic collapse at the end of 2008, Caleb Scates decided to quit his job in Cincinnati, Ohio and drive across country in a car leaking brake fluid and coolant to form an alternative rock band in Austin, Texas. Weeks after the move, Scates met Jonathan Palmer and Dan Walker who migrated to Austin to pursue music 2003. The trio rehearsed vigorously through the beginning of 2009 and played their first show at the end of April.
Radio Fallout managed to squeeze in four shows in Austin during SXSW 2011 before taking a break from touring to focus on their first full length album. In August, Radio Fallout took a break from recording to Headline Simmerfest II Summer Music Festival in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. In October, they were invited to perform a showcase sponsored by the national organization RAW Natural Born Artists, and a charity show to benefit the Kyle No Kill Animal Center at Texas State in San Marcos. Radio Fallout wrapped up their studio work just in time for SXSW 2012 which they played two shows.
To me, they sound like a mix of Green Day, Weezer, The White Stripes, The Foo Fighters, and Nirvana.The band consists of Caleb Scates, Dan Walker and Jonathan Palmer. Their CD, “Vox e Tenebris”, will be available on September 4, 2012. It's a phenomenal CD and you should check out their music!
