Tired Radio is Anthony Truzzolino and Anthony Truzzolino is Tired Radio. The band and the man are inseparable as each, in some part, defines the other. But Tired Radio is far more than a simple one man band and it isn’t just a solo project put together by a self-confessed professional cry baby. Tired Radio is the place where Anthony’s songs, dreams, hopes and ambitions soar. Tired Radio is where everything that Anthony is musically, with a little help from his friends, lives.
A bruising, melodic journey down the paths less travelled, Patterns, Tired Radio’s debut album, infuses volume, power and infectious choruses with the energy, independence and autonomy of punk rock to deliver blue collar, Americana flavoured anthem after anthem after anthem.
Patterns is where the moments that shaped Anthony’s life, and the Tired Radio songs those moments inspired, have found a home. So turn on, tune in and turn it up. Welcome to Tired Radio…
Tired Radio are : Anthony Truzzolino, vocals and guitar, Ryan Barnes, guitar, Jason St Angelo, Bass and Kevin Daly, drums.

Sometimes you just to switch the world off, step outside of yourself and take a moment to readjust, revaluate and reassess everything you thought you knew before hitting the reset button and jumping back into the mundane reality of everyday life. Patterns is the sound of that interlude, that moment of untainted bliss in which, if only for the briefest of instants, you’re truly free.
A deeply personal, reflective and moving album, Patterns wears Tired Radio’s heart on its sleeve and carves its desperate longing and loneliness into your soul with its Americana inspired Exacto knife. If the Pixies had been a blue-collar, rock and roll band from Michigan circa 1988, they’d have sounded exactly like Tired Radio. This is the record that you never knew you needed, but have always wanted.

I don't remember how I stumbled across Tired Radio, but I'm glad I did! They're about to drop their debut LP titled "Patterns" on August 14 via Engineer Records, and I'm highly anticipating this one, and that's after only hearing the new single. These guys write the kind of emotionally driven and melodic anthemic punk rock with pop hooks that gets stuck in your head for days. If the new single "Making Plans" is any indication of how the rest of their debut LP will sound, I think we are in for a real summer treat! My understanding is that these songs were originally written by the primary songwriter Anthony Truzzolino and the full band was added later. Some of the songs had apparently been written for some time now. The full band sound of Making Plans really brings the song to life, and adds a level of energy I'm not sure could be captured as a solo artist song. If this is one of the older songs that was written for the LP (I heard this in an interview with Engineer Records, their new label), then I imagine the new songs will be just as good if not better! Think Jawbreaker, Leatherface, the early Beach Slang material (from their original EPs), Hot Water Music, Menzingers, Small Brown Bike, and the like. I look forward to hearing the LP in full and posting more thoughts on it soon.

Tired Radio is the place where Anthony Truzzolino paints emotional moments, songs and dreams that outline hopes about his ambitions and travels. The debut album is not a singer / songwriter album, however, because it has a concentrated energy, the autonomy of punk rock and the rough, rugged vocal melancholy that blows in every line. In Patterns, the moments that shaped Anthony in life come alive and are always dreamy. Passages emphasized by guitars that accompany the sensitive and vulnerable side, choruses that lead the view beyond the horizon and accompany with a deep sigh. Patterns is grating heartfelt rock with the soundtrack for life, with all its ups and downs, served melancholy and heart-breaking.
