We are excited to premiere the full album stream of Rad Owl’s sophomore LP, ‘Rage Gracefull,’ ahead of tomorrow’s release via Sell The Heart Records (US) and Engineer Records (EU/UK). Featuring former members of Samiam, Gratitude, The Stereo and more, these pedigreed scene vets from Minneapolis, Minnesota continue to level up as high-octane musicians and songwriters while maintaining their plucky punk ethos, even in the unforgiving and often cynical face of middle age.

Self-deprecation and Midwestern humility aside, ‘Rage Gracefully’ swings for the fences with all the confidence of a well-oiled machine and promises to connect hard with fans of legends like Descendents, Propagandhi, Samiam, Hot Water Music, and even Iron Maiden. Backed by punchy and pristine production, Rad Owl’s airtight and energetic melodic punk rock finds a new gear over the course of 12 fresh tracks that boast layers of nuanced harmonies, and heightened emotional urgency.

Already a regular fixture at Gainesville, Florida’s celebrated FEST Halloween weekend extravaganza, Rad Owl made their debut appearance at Montreal, Quebec’s annual Pouzza Fest on May 19, which they will follow with LP release dates in the Midwest and beyond.
