We live in a world where everything, including music, is itemized and made into a genre (indeed the sub-genres grow daily!). Yet rock is all about rebellion plus rejecting norms and Hamilton, ON’s marvelous award nominated RADIO FREE UNIVERSE are very much their own creation. In vocalist George Panagopoulos’ words, they are “genuine, honest, heavy, sonic…liberating”.
Panagopoulos explains liberty is a big part of the inspiration behind RADIO FREE UNIVERSE’s unique name.
“It is inspired by Radio Free Europe, which began as part of the resistance against tyranny in World War 2. Now its journalists report the news in 23 countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. We apply this to our music. Trying to break free of the chains of genres and just focusing on the song and serving it.”
RADIO FREE UNIVERSE’s debut album ‘Casa Del Diablo’ is set for release on March 17th, 2017 via Jet Pack Records and features twelve infectious rocking tunes. The band’s first single ‘Disclosure’ is currently hitting radio across Canada plus free for download exclusively on PureGrainAudio.com here. With just a few days left to the album’s release, RFU are ready to share with fans an online stream of their next single ‘American Gun’.
Vocalist George Panagopoulos comments on the track:
“‘American Gun’, it’s a song about them. How it feels to hold one, how it feels to hate them. You can sing these words and mean them. It will work for both sides of the issue.”
‘American Gun’ can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/radiofreeuniverse/radio-free-universe-america-gun
‘Casa Del Diablo’ was mixed and mastered by Glen Robinson (Voivod, Gwar) along with him producing tracks American Gun, Disclosure, 18 Wheels and Six with the rest of the release produced by RFU vocalist George Panagopoulos and Mark McMaster.
Prior to preparing for their debut release, RADIO FREE UNIVERSE has made quite a name for themselves on the live scene in Southern Ontario and greater Toronto area since their formation in 2010. In their hometown of Hamilton, ON, they’ve performed at the Hamilton Music Awards plus have been nominated twice for Recording of The Year. Other appearances by RFU include Canadian Music Week, Lock Street Festival, NXNE, KOI Fest and Big Music Fest ft. Aerosmith, Bryan Adams and Slash.

From time to time you come across a band whose sonic frequencies manage to resonate with you in such a way as to make you feel like they’ve always been a part of your life. When I first heard “Reaching Down” from Order of Voices self titled release (2009) I instantly gravitated to the rest of the album. The blend of hooky, yet off time guitar melodies, layers upon layers of vocals well worth the goosebumps and this underlying 90’s rock feel made me an immediate fan. It was not long after that I found myself singing along… but eventually the longing grew to wanting more music from this quintet from Sheffield, UK. Continue reading
