GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award-winning, Red’s debut release, End of Silence, has entered the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart. End of Silence released June 6, 2006.
Red bassist, Randy Armstrong, is excited to see the album’s continuing success, saying, “This is one more thing to add to an incredible year. We would wish this kind of year on any new band who’s trying to break into the industry, and I would like to thank everyone who’s worked so hard to help us achieve the honors we’ve received so far.”
Red’s latest radio single, “Break Me Down,” is at No. 5 on the R&R Rock Chart, and is climbing the CRW Rock Chart and currently holds the No. 8 position. On mainstream radio, the single is No. 12 with a bullet on the Active Rock Indicator Chart.
Red is currently on tour with Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin and Puddle of Mudd. The next stop on the tour is tonight in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the KDJE Edgefest at North Shore. Red will be playing over fifteen festivals throughout the summer, including concerts at Atlanta Fest, the Ichthus Festival, and the Alive Festival in June. Red will finish off the month with a highly anticipated performance at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, Calif. (June 29). Visit www.myspace.com/dropofred for all upcoming tour dates.
