Due to some unforseen but important family matters, The Radio Dept. unfortunately have to pull out of the dates in the UK & Ireland during April. We hope to be able to reschedule soon, but at this stage it is looking like the fall in the earliest capacity. So sorry for this inconvenience.

Aiken Promotions presents
THE RADIO DEPT
_ Main Venue _
Swedish group The Radio Dept will headline Whelans, Dublin on 19 April 2017.
In October last year, The Radio Dept released their 4th full-length album Running Out of Love – an album about their life in Sweden and how society seems to be in regression on so many levels. Politically, intellectually, morally…It’s an album about all the things that are moving in the wrong direction. It’s about the impatience that turns into anger, hate and ultimately withdrawal and apathy when love for the world and their existence begins to falter.
In the summer of 2014 following a creative pause due to a lengthy legal battle with their record label and publisher, ideas and a concept for Running Out of Love started to come together and the single “Death to Fascism”, now too old to be included, was the first effort towards the album. Later, more new songs started to appear. The court case is taken care of in “Occupied”, the Swedish weapon and arms industry in “Swedish Guns” and “We Got Game” is about the proud police tradition of protecting nazis and racists, whilst at the same time using brutal violence against opposing groups of protesters.
Running Out of Love has moulded itself into a rather dystopian album, mainly because it was created in a sense of deep frustration over the reactionary currents which characterize The Radio Dept’s time.
