NEW ORLEANS' RADIATORS RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM,
DREAMING OUT LOUD ON OCTOBER 3, 2006.
LOOK FOR THEM ON TOUR THIS FALL.
During the band's 28 years, The Radiators have come tantalizingly close to making the "Great New Orleans Rock Recording." Now, with the release of their new record, Dreaming Out Loud (Radz Records - October 3, 2006), they've done it. Dreaming Out Loud is the definitive studio recording by one of New Orleans' best Rock bands.
Dreaming Out Loud is an accurate and intriguing self-portrait of these New Orleans natives; heartbroken by the devastation Hurricane Katrina brought to their beloved city, but not hopeless. Determined to record the album in their hometown, The Radiators teamed up with producer Mark Bingham at Piety St. Recording N.O.L.A. during the city's historical 2006 Mardi Gras celebration, when the New Orleans community gathered together to remind the world that the city and its traditions would in fact survive. There and then the band laid the tracks for Dreaming Out Loud - a New Orleans-flavored "war cry" that only The Radiators could assemble. The album's title track sets straight those who ever doubted the city's legacy would continue; Malone sings - "Our music is all we've ever had."
