About Me
Formed in 1999, Irradio recorded 2002's Semantic Noise at Sweet Sound Studios with Ruben Montoya and 2004's Make-Up for the Inaugurated, with Ben Moore (Hot Snakes, Rocket from the Crypt) at Signature Sound. The Sexy Wolf demos were released in 2006 on Lola Records. Their music has appeared on the Discovery Channel's Urban Explorers; Tony hawks '08 Loop Challenge, Afro-punk’s 2010 release of “Let’s get free,” and on compilation CDs (Insound, Magnet, and Amp). Irradio has shared the bill with some of today’s amazing artist: Vato Negro, Saul Williams, Living Colour, and Black Heart Procession, also adding promising inroads through Canada, U.S. and Mexico early in the bands life.

After a 2006 split, Irradio announced it was reforming in late 2008. Front man Dan Dasher chose to finish writing the songs that became Irradio's third album. New comers Steven Welker (Sax) and the driving Bass lines of Rick Blare catapulted the band to a new sound. In 2009, Irradio released I Am the Horn, on local Blind spot Records (Staring at the Sun, etc.), and produced by Mitch Wilson (No Knife). It won Best Rock Album at the 2009 San Diego Music Awards. That year also noted the first time the band was invited to perform at SXSW on a bill that showcased new emerging artist sponsored by

2012 the band played it's last show at the San Diego House of blues, only to begin writing music for the follow up record to I am the horn...

Your sound reminds me of a cross-country ride at speeds of 60mph... and sometimes 125. Wind on my head, teeth unbrushed and speeding ahead with my 8-track blasting and my ideals everlasting. I play your tracks on repeat. Thanks.
