In Search Of Tone: Mike Burns Of Radian

It’s time to shed some light on one of the hardest-working bands I know. Radian from Akron, Ohio create some epic heavy music and their 2022 release Discordian still cycles through my playlists. But it’s their work ethic and determination that makes them a step above.

For example, I have been slacking on these In Search of Tone interviews and I spoke with Mike Burns a while back about doing one with me.

I told him I was busy and will let him know when I can meet. He decided to go above and beyond and film a rig rundown and answer my questions on film. He did it all and sent me a link, so I didn’t have to worry about transcribing or anything. And just like that the first video In Search of Tone was created.

Check out guitarist Mike Burns talk about his gear and his approach to creating heavy riffs and memorable music that you will find yourself craving to hear.
