Go Radio is a rock band from Tallahassee, Florida, formed by former Mayday Parade vocalist, guitarist and lyricist Jason Lancaster in April of 2007.[2]

The band has toured with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, A Day to Remember, Mayday Parade and will be part of the Vans Warped Tour in 2011.[3]

FormationEdit

Go Radio formed in April 2007 after Jason Lancaster left Mayday Parade. Together with Matt 'Burns' Poulos, as well as Steven Kopacz and Patrick Hosey of the Florida band Don't Die Cindy, Lancaster started Go Radio. The name "Go Radio" was originally going to be the name of a Mayday Parade side project of Lancaster's. Hosey left the band in late 2007, and was replaced by Tony Planas.

In 2008 Go Radio released their debut EP Welcome To Life. Planas would leave the band in late 2008, and was replaced by Alex Reed, formerly of the Michigan band "Carawae". Reed contacted the band through Myspace[4] and originally joined only as a touring guitarist, but was later promoted to a full time member.

Fearless Records and Do Overs and Second Chances (2009 - 2010)Edit

On September 8, 2009 the band released their first studio update. They revealed that they were in the process of recording a new EP with producers Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount, both of whom produced Mayday Parade's A Lesson in Romantics.[5] On October 5, 2009, Go Radio released two of the songs from the EP on their Myspace. The band then signed to Fearless Records[6] on January 21, 2010 and went on to release Do Overs and Second Chances as their Fearless Records debut on April 20, 2010.

Lucky Street and Warped Tour (2010 - 2011)Edit

In the July 2010 Issue of Alternative Press Jason Lancaster revealed that he had begun writing for Go Radio's debut LP for Fearless Records. On August 31, 2010 in Brooklyn, NY the band headed into the studio with Tim O’Heir (The All-American Rejects, Hot Rod Circuit, The Starting Line, Say Anything).[7][8] They finished recording on September 29th, 2010.[9] The resulting album, Lucky Street was released on March 1, 2011. The album was very well received by critics, and debuted #77 on the US Billboard 200 and debuted within the top 20 of the US Billboard Rock, Independent, and Alternative Albums charts. On June 6, 2011, a music video for the single "Any Other Heart" premiered on Vevo.

Go Radio will be playing the entire Warped Tour from June to August 2011.
