Hometown: New Brunswick, NJ (USA)


In 2002 Static Radio started inconspicuously enough: four friends who grew up going to shows and listening to all types of music got together, wrote some songs, and played any show they could get their hands on. Initially, the band reflected much of what had drawn them into punk: simple, aggressive guitars, angry vocals, and speeding drums. As a relatively young band, they cut their teeth on the New Jersey scene the hard way; painstaking trial and error, and above all an unrelenting energy and desire for experiences. Over the years these experiences seeped themselves into the way the band crafted their songs; although they never strayed from hardcore punk their material began to take on additional elements, nuances reflective of their years as a band. Somewhere along the way, two things happened; someone on the opposite side of the country unleashed their legal team upon the band in order to protect the image of their bar–band/ puppet–show/God–knows–what (at which point Static Radio became Static Radio NJ) and more importantly, the band somehow decided that the progression and growth of the band would become the memberÔ??s main priority. Static Radio NJ don't plan on stopping anytime soon because they simply love what they are doing and couldn't imagine doing anything else but playing to anybody that wants to listen.
