Radiation 4 have scheduled their final show on January 13th, 2007 at the Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. The bill tentatively includes Playing Enemy, Graf Orlock and Loftus as well.
The band announced that they will be going on indefinite hiatus earlier this year stating that it was due to "a mutual understanding of our individual ambitions, which cannot be achieved at this point in our musical career as a collective", but would play a final show. Radiation 4 previously released an album with Abacus Recordings in 2003.
After the final show, Aaron and Jon will be focusing on family, while Jose and Chris have plans to hook up with Demian and Shane of Playing Enemy in a project tentatively called Playing Doctor.
California's Radiation 4 is going on an indefinite hiatus. The band released an album with Abacus Recordings in 2003. Here's a statement from R4 singer Chris Negrete:
"This decision is was made amicably and stemmed from an mutual understanding of our individual ambitions, which cannot be achieved at this point in our musical career as a collective. We're going to be doing a "final show" in late Oct/Nov at Chain Reaction. This will probably be the last time you'll ever see us play live. R4 will do a final recording in September with Josh Newell, which will consist of a few new ones, and a very special track. Expect this to all come out on a 12" that we will be releasing.
As far as the future is concerned for us beyond that point, Aaron and Jon will be doing family, while Jose and myself (Chris) have plans to hook up with Demian and Shane of Playing Enemy. This new aural assault will be forthcoming under the name Playing Doctor (aren't we clever?).
Our deepest thanks go out to all of you for giving us your support and sharing in the best of times."
