Chances are, you don't know The Radio Buzzkills...yet. That is about to change.
The St. Louis based punk band plays the kind of 90s pop punk you know and love. Over the past two years, they've shared stages with Dan Vapid & The Cheats, UK Subs, Parasites, Squirtgun and The Queers. Their current line up could be the greatest pop punk band you've yet to hear, with a sound that blends the best elements of the Ramones and Screeching Weasel, with bassist Jen's backing vocals lending an all important sound that's influenced by the much missed Teen Idols...only harder.
Formed in 2016 by frontman Zac Buzzkill, the band drew on a shared love of Screeching Weasel for their earliest compositions. That same year, a DIY EP release 'The Quick and The Cheap' was well received by the punk underground and even gained attention elsewhere. It became the best selling release in the history of the Braindead Records label.
The 'Can't Be Killed' EP followed at the beginning of 2017, which saw the band trading in fun songs about zombies for angry messages directed at Donald Trump. The success of the EP led to the band signing with Glendale, CA. label Outloud Records – home to Latte+, horror punks The Moans and The Prozacs – as well as playing a one-off show as The Twenty-Sevens with Screeching Weasel co-founder John 'Jughead' Pierson.
The Buzzkills also signed with independent label Milksop Records specifically for vinyl releases, which quickly yielded the release of the 'Hi-Sci Fidelity' 7”.
2018 has seen the band scaling even higher heights, with their 'Get Fired!' full length earning a place among the year's most essential releases. At the time of release, realgonerocks.com called the record “a throwback to when pop punk was great” as well as claiming the Buzzkills were now “ready to mark their place within the pantheon of great pop punk acts.”
