Electrifying psychedelic hard rock band RADIO MOSCOW has announced summer, 2009 U.S. tour dates in support of its shining new album Brain Cycles (Alive Records). Fresh from a successful European tour, RADIO MOSCOW will kick off a U.S. trek on June 15 in Lawrence, Kansas and will remain on the road through mid-August, bringing its intoxicating live show -- which blends the dirty, romanticized feelings of blues-rock’s lament and the acidic and addictive fluorescence of psychedelic rock -- to as many music fans as possible.

Hailing from Story City, IA, RADIO MOSCOW is the brain child of 22 year old guitar prodigy Parker Griggs, who formed the band in 2003. Soon after, Griggs attended a Black Keys show and handed a RADIO MOSCOW demo to guitarist Dan Auerbach who loved what he heard and subsequently produced the band’s eponymous debut. Named for the pre-Cold War precursor to the propaganda outlet ‘Voice of Russia’, RADIO MOSCOW’s amped up, captivating sound harkens back to the glory days of the power trio, when Cream and Blue Cheer ruled the earth and the power of the Marshall stack was unquestioned. Live, Griggs' unbelievable blues-driven, wah-wah heavy riffs and smoking guitar solos have drawn oft-comparison to the great Jimi Hendrix, a flattering compliment that gains conviction with each and every new RADIO MOSCOW live performance.

As Griggs’ guitar prowess and front man live legend continues to grow, RADIO MOSCOW as a unit consistently receives praise for its mind-blowing live performances. The power trio is a true blues-driven rock band in every sense of the phrase and has boiled its lineup down to the essentials: bass, guitar and drums, encouraging extroverted playing from the band members, often at very high volumes. RADIO MOSCOW’s self-proclaimed “Guitar Music” has been called “throwback rock blues as a wall of sound,” that is “at times a romp, trying to uncover that secret to the brilliance of Led Zeppelin II.”

The brand new RADIO MOSCOW track “Broke Down” has been posted online – check out the new song now at this location. Live footage of RADIO MOSCOW recent performance as part of Holland’s famed Roadburn Festival can be viewed now by visiting this location.

RADIO MOSCOW will remain on the road through mid August. Along the course of the tour’s trail, the band will perform as part of the 2009 Deep Blues Festival in Minneapolis, MN and will support legendary doom metal band Pentagram on July 3 at Los Angeles’ House of Blues. A full listing of upcoming RADIO MOSCOW tour dates follows this message.

“If you love classic guitar parts and blues-injected, Trans Am-driving rock, RADIO MOSCOW is right up your road. In fact, you may fall in love with its fist-pumping brand of rock.” – POPMATTERS

“Some think RADIO MOSCOW could be the next Des Moines band to generate some national buzz. They’ve got a record deal, a promising tour, a unique sound (for these times), and a whole lot of talent. Think Peter Green, Cream, Jefferson Airplane.” - METROMIX

“Singer/vocalist Parker Griggs displayed serious chops, pulling off the type of guitar work Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton (Cream) patented. His Orange amp produced the right sound for making blues-based, heavy jam music.” –

“Muscular riff rock à la the Jeff Beck Group” – ALL MUSIC
