Bronze Radio Return and Air Traffic Controller On Tour

We love it when good pop music comes together. Colliding on tour right now are two of our longtime favorites, Bronze Radio Return and Air Traffic Controller. Avid OurStagers might recall Bronze Radio Return from their inclusion in our new music web series The Panel, or perhaps from the many other times they won competitions and appeared on our charts. Similarly, Air Traffic Controller earned a spotlight feature on MTV.com and have racked up more than a dozen Top 10 chart placements. Both bands have been blowing up over the past couple of years, garnering well-deserved national attention as they cross the country. If you’re in the northeast United States, you can and SHOULD catch them together right now:

The Return Of Bronze Radio Return

We were thrilled to hear the propulsive new single “Light Me Up” by our friends Bronze Radio Return, whose new album is out this Friday. It’s ridiculously catchy and seems to encapsulate the best elements of the musical zeitgeist, from pop to rock to folk to indie, all in about three minutes.

Today, the band is previewing the new full-length album, also titled Light Me Upover at the estimable Paste Magazine.

We love it when our friends become successful. Bronze Radio Return have been building their career for years and are finally poised to break big. Last week, they headed down to Tennessee to play the Bonnaroo festival. That was impressive enough, and then there they were today, smiling at us from the Rolling Stone live and backstage photo gallery. Hello gents, and well done.

Bonnaroo Club Stage To Feature Bronze Radio Return And More

The lineup for the 2014 Bonnaroo Club Stage has been announced and it looks like a pretty stellar bill. Our very own friends Bronze Radio Return will be there, which alone should be enough to steer you away from the main stage for a bit. But add to that a number of emerging favorites, including Skinny Lister, who dropped by our studios last year for an exclusive session, and our hometown heroes Speedy Ortiz and, well, you might do well to consider how you’re going to divide your time, festival-goer.
