Story behind the John Bradley Podcast:

Michigan-based indie and emo rock outfit Dads has been hard at work since the release of its 2012 album, American Radass (This Is Important). The group’s touring has been relentless, and last summer it signed to 6131 Records for the release of its Pretty Good EP. Earning praise everywhere from Pitchfork and the AV Club who said they “strike [a] balance of proficiency and punchiness”, it’s clear that Dads have captured the attention of wider audiences.

In the midst of all this, the band began writing and will release I’ll Be the Tornado, the sophomore full-length from Dads in October 2014. Recorded by Neil Strauch of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Iron & Wine and Owen fame at MinBal Studio in Chicago, IL and mastered by Carl SaffI’ll Be the Tornado is a dynamic, introspective, and thoughtful rock record that showcases a band that is continuing to grow.

We talked to vocalist-drummer John Bradley about his upbringing, the incredible team effort that makes Dads a success and about his love for the limelight.
