The Radio Dept. is a Swedish band fronted by friends Johan Duncanson and Martin Carlberg. The pair recently announced the release of their fourth studio album, Running Out Of Love, on October 21st via Stockholm-based premium pop label Labrador Records. This will be their first full length recording since 2010’s critically acclaimed album Clinging To A Scheme. First single “Swedish Guns” is a haunting takedown of the Swedish arms industry.
Running Out Of Love is about life in Sweden in 2016 moving in the wrong direction: politically, intellectually, morally. It’s about the impatience that turns into anger, hate and ultimately withdrawal and apathy when love for the world and our existence begins to falter.
