History

Radio Radio released their first EP entitled Télé-Télé in 2007. During their promotional tour in Montréal, they were interviewed on Christiane Charette's radio show broadcast on la Première Chaîne.

In April 2008, the band released their first full-length album Cliché Hot on Bonsound Records. They received a nomination in the "Revelation of the year" (Révélation de l'année) category, at the Félix Award gala, where they also performed.

Radio Radio composed a song and produced a video for the special end-of-year presentation of Infoman, a television program hosted by Jean-René Dufort, which was broadcast on Radio-Canada.

In 2010, Radio Radio released a second album, Belmundo Regal on label Bonsound Records, which was on the short list for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.[1] They also won the Miroir Award (Prix Miroir) for Urban and Contemporary Music at the Quebec City Summer Festival (Festival d'été de Québec).[2] In January 2011, Radio Radio won The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards in the Electro/Hip-Hop category for Belmundo Regal.[3]

In 2012, Radio Radio won best hip hop album at the ADISQ and East-Coast music awards for their third album Havre de Grace. HdG was made possible by collaborating with outside collaborators: Horace Trahan in Louisiana and Renji Condoré a.k.a. Mamoru Kobayakawa who co-wrote most of the songs on the album with Arthur Comeau a.k.a. Zander McQuigan a.k.a. Nom de Plume.

Radio Radio have played and will be seen playing in festivals such as Les FrancoFolies de Montréal, Osheaga 2008, South by Southwest 2010, the 2010 Winter Olympics, Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette and many more. The band has also played at Woodstock. In 2013, they were one of the closing acts for the Canada Day Festivities in Ottawa.

In February 2014, Radio Radio were invited musical guests on SNL Québec's premiere show. The show aired on February 8, 2014, with guest host Louis-José Houde.

The group is slated to release Light the Sky, its first fully-English album, in 2016.[4]
