RADIO MOSCOW are a perfect example of the classic
full-throttle power trio. Though by no means devoid of
nuance and detail, the first thing one notices while
standing in front of the band as they begin to unleash
their stage show, is the feeling of being blown back by
a whirlwind of energy and power, concocted by three
guys locked in a groove. Led by Stratocaster genius
Parker Griggs, RADIO MOSCOW have carved their own
sonic niche fusing crunching, heavy Sabbath-style
chords with fiery ‘Hendrixian’ solos and a raw intensity
that is addictive and captivating, also citing the likes
of Cream, Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin as further
influences. Now, RADIO MOSCOW are gearing up for an
exciting new chapter in their career with the release
of the fifth studio album “New Beginnings” on Century
Media Records.
Formed in 2003 by Parker Griggs in Ames, Iowa, the
band has been based in San Diego county, California,
for several years now. Parker is joined by Paul Marrone
on drums and bassist Anthony Meier. RADIO MOSCOW has released four studio albums to date: “Radio
Moscow” - produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who introduced the band to Alive Natural Sound
records, the label that has released every record up until now - “Brain Cycles”, “The Great Escape of Leslie
Magnafuzz”, and “Magical Dirt”. Alive also released the early, garage demos collection “3 and 3 Quarters”,
and the live record, “Live in California”, which New York Music Daily cited as the Best Heavy Psych Album
of 2016.
Since the live album was released, RADIO MOSCOW has made the leap to a worldwide deal with Century
Media Records, said Parker Griggs, “We couldn't be more stoked to be joining the Century Media family!
When we met these guys we spent hours nerding out on obscure classics from our favorite era of rock ‘n’
roll (1965-1974).... so we feel right at home!”
The first result of this new collaboration is “New Beginnings”, which offers a powerful 10-track blues rock
ride which was recorded at Lost Ark Studio in San Diego with Mike Butler, produced by the band’s own
Parker Griggs, and mastered by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering. From the bursting guitar licks
of opening track “New Beginning” over to the road dog anthem “Driftin’” and the Hendrix-like groove of
“No One Knows Where They’ve Been”, from the pounding “Pacing” to moody album closer “Dreams”,
RADIO MOSCOW present an authentic and electrifying mix of versatile guitar play, the passionate raw howl
of Parker Griggs and a tight, energetic rhythm section.
Known as a brilliant live act, RADIO MOSCOW have toured and performed with the likes of Graveyard,
Witchcraft, Joe Bonamassa, Pentagram, the Sheepdogs, Nebula, and Bang. They played the Up in Smoke
tour in Europe (with Colour Haze) which included an appearance on the legendary German television
program Rockpalast, where the band performed a set, played acoustic and were interviewed. In 2016 theyplayed the Ride Festival, Desert Daze, Electric Funeral, End Hip End It, the Psycho California festival, and
as is only appropriate, have headlined shows in both St. Petersburg and Moscow in Russia. Also for “New
Beginnings”, RADIO MOSCOW will tour internationally, US dates were completed in June/July 2017, UK
dates are confirmed for August, and a full European tour kicks off September 26th, 2017. So if you are
looking for the fine art of rock, RADIO MOSCOW will bring waves of fuzzy, hard rocking riffs and sweaty,
cranked up blues right to you!

In a time where everybody has to put a label on a band to try and separate or distinguish what kind of music they play, Amplified Heat adopts Lemmy from Motorhead's philosophy....ROCK AND ROLL! Not "rock", "indie" or "alternative" but rock 'n roll in the most raw and dirty sense of the term.

The trio consists of brothers Jim, Chris & Gian Ortiz, who have been playing music together since they were kids. Two thirds of the band were born in Cali, Colombia and the other in New Jersey. They spent their young lives in La Puente, California, a racially mixed community but predominantly hispanic. They bounced around between Colombia and California a few times before finally settling in Texas. The band pulls from a variety of influences including Cream, Blue Cheer, early ZZ Top, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and many more.
