Radkey are a trio of teenaged brothers whose interests include comic books, anime, video games, and crafting hypervisual music videos. The Missouri-reared garage-punks have shared a colorfully loud clip to support "Romance Dawn," the fiery first single off of the upcoming Devil Fruit EP, out October 15 via Little Man Records. Co-directed by designer/composer Shaun Hamontree and video artist Cyan Meeks, the psychedelic short packs in vivid Zoetrope effects, explosive bursts of text, and a fierce performance from the boys of Radkey: singer-guitarist Dee, bassist Isaiah, and drummer Solomon Radke. The whole video is like a splash page set in motion. Watch it above and find tour dates below.
