The beginning of Danger Radio can be traced back to 1999 when thenmiddle
schoolers Andrew de Torres and Nico Hartikainken started playing
local talent shows around the Seattle suburb of Everett, WA. After honing
their skills, the duo expanded into a sextet and the foundation was planted.
The band was ready to take off.
The band's sound continued to develop over the years, from their pop-punk
leaning demos to the dance and r&b infused sound found on their 2006 EP
"The Difference Between Love and Envy." The self-released EP caught the
eye of Photo Finish Records who went on to release the band's "Punch
Your Lights Out" EP in 2008.
The band started to play larger stages, including the Bamboozle Music
Festival in New Jersey, Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, and the first
PacTour. They toured with bands like We The Kings, The Maine, The Cab
and Metro Station. Meanwhile, vocalist Torres expanded out into The Scene
2008 saw the band release their debut album "Used and Abused," which
featured the fan favorite "Slow Dance with a Stranger." More touring
followed for the next two years, including shows with Family Force 5,
Forever The Sickest Kids, PlayRadioPlay! and their first headlining tour.
Now, with the solidified lineup of Torres, Hartikainken, guitarists Andy
Brookins and Elan Wright, keyboardist Spencer Philips, and bassist Robbie
Cochrane in tow, the band is set to release their second full-length for
Doghouse Records. The follow-up album was produced by Mike Green
(Paramore, The Higher, Set Your Goals, Breathe Carolina) and will be
released on July 27th.
