The tracks are filled with a ton of Eastern European flair combined with the band’s theatrical punk sound with themes of working class life. Mercury Radio Theater will have you foot-stomping from the first note and jumping around like a maniac by the last note. I dare you to sit still while watching the videos below.
Catch Mercury Radio Theater when they play Ortelib’s on August 8. According to the group, it’ll be a “dystopian display of epic proportions” where “Eastern European propaganda and down-home, God fearin’ religiosity will combine to showcase a group of musicians slipping slowly into the melting pot of madness.” For more information and tickets, check out the XPN Concert Calendar.
