Longtime friends Brian Patchett and Rancid drummer Branden Steineckert first recorded an Apocalypse Radio record together back in 2001. Years passed as both musicians were caught up in other projects, but the pair reconnected last year at Steineckert’s Unknown Studios in Orem, Utah to record self-titled album Apocalypse Radio.
“We wanted to write, record an album on our own again with no mission statement in mind…. just going with our gut and putting it all down with no limitations,” the punk rockers state on their website. “We are very proud of this album and we have worked extremely hard. We couldn’t care less if anyone else likes it, cause we do! That was the only objective. To do something on our own we could be proud of.”
The album, which features contributions from Steineckert’s Rancid bandmate Matt Freeman, Drew Hamnett, Josh Sanderson, and Jake Moore, is available at their online store and on iTunes.
