    There is LOTS going on in the Radkey camp.

    The band of brothers –literally-- will drop the 9 Lives At The 100 Club, a limited edition, cassette-only release for Record Store Day.

    A cassette? What's that, you ask, millennials? Relax, we'll tell ya!

    Recorded at The 100 Club in London March 5, 2014 on the final date of their first ever headline tour, this release captures the raw energy and unhinged nature of the band's live shows while showcasing their power and sonic punch. It includes a cover of The Misfits' classic "Last Caress!"

    "The 100 Club show in London back in February was amazing, one of the coolest nights of our entire lives," explained Isaiah Radke. "So instead of making the obligatory 7-inch for Record Store Day, we wanted to do something special and put the show on a limited cassette with artwork from London skateboarder/illustrator Jack Hamilton. Selling out such a legendary place was a really big deal to us. The crowd was falling all over the stage so you can kinda hear Dee get hit by the mic and stuff!"

    Only 500 9 Lives At The 100 Club cassettes will be available worldwide for Record Store Day.

    That's what we call SERIOUSLY limited edition.
