Radiation City Signs With Polyvinyl / New Album - Synesthetica - Out Feb 12, 2016
Posted 11/11/2015

We’re thrilled to announce that Portland, OR’s Radiation City have officially joined the Polyvinyl family! The band’s incredible new album, Synesthetica, will be released Feb 12, 2016 and is currently available for pre-order. Synesthetica will be available on 180-gram white vinyl (limited to 500), clear vinyl, CD, cassette, and digital formats.

Based on the condition known as synesthesia, whereby a person links one sensual experience with another (for keyboardist/vocalist Elisabeth Ellison, who experiences it, that means seeing specific colors when she hears different musical sounds), Synesthetica is a place where multi-sensory experience is commonplace; where feelings and definitions blend and melt, and surreality becomes reality.

Check out the first single, “Juicy,” over on NYLON (or stream it above) and read more about the album right here.

The band has also announced a full US tour in support of Synesthetica which kicks off in February. Check out all the dates below.
