|RED’S NON-STOP TOURING CONTINUES!
15 April 2008
Modern rock band Red is clearly not afraid to continue to show why its debut album, End of Silence (6/6/06) is an album to be taken very seriously. At a time when most people assume the band is on its second, or third, project, Red shows further evidence that the silence truly ended on June 6, 2006, the release date of End of Silence. Still touring in support of End of Silence, Red currently boasts the following stats, ALL from its debut: “Let Go” being selected by Activision, for the videogame “Baja 1000”; “Already Over” premiering on FUSE.TV (4/4/08); a top 10 hit at R&R Active Rock Radio (“Breathe Into Me”); a GRAMMY Award nomination; a Dove Award win (and additional nominations); four number one radio singles at Christ ian Rock radio; “Let Go” being used by CBS in promotion spots for its hit, drama “Without A Trace;” and now a stellar single review of “Already Over,” by Billboard Magazine. “Already Over” is currently No. 24 on the R&R Active Rock radio chart.
Red will be on tour with 3 Doors Down through the end of April, then will join Seether and Flyleaf, in May. For all current Red tour dates, visit www.myspace.com/dropofred.
Billboard Magazine offers the following review of “Already Over” in its April 12 edition. “Evanescence defined catchy orchestra- and goth-flavored rock that excelled for its emotional depth. Nashville’s Red, newly upstreamed from Provident Label Group to Epic, turns that sound into its own on ‘Already Over.’ Singer Michael Barnes throws back his head and howls in anguish at love’s demise, while the band lets it rip with one walloping crescendo after another. This is the masculine side of the story when it comes to misery, as piano trickling in the background reminds that guys can also be fragile inside. It’s no accident that “Already Over” is swiftly ascending at radio – it’s but one killer song from the act’s 2006 End of Silence debut that has plumped up sales of the rereleased album past the 200,000 mark.”
Red is nominated for a Dove Award at the 39th Annual GMA Dove Awards, in the Rock Recorded Song category, for its No. 1 hit song “Break Me Down” from its album End of Silence. The 39th Annual GMA Dove Awards show will be presented on April 23, 2008 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville and broadcast live on Gospel Music Channel (www.gospelmusicchannel.com). A complete list of nominations is available online at www.doveawards.com.
Since the June 6, 2006 release of its debut album, End of Silence (Essential Records), Red has toured non-stop (over 250 dates per year), collected four No. 1 radio singles at Christian Rock radio (“Breathe Into Me,” “Already Over,” “Break Me Down” and “Let Go”), won a Dove Award (Rock Recorded Song for “Breathe Into Me”), and received a GRAMMY nomination in the category Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album for End of Silence. The five-member band is: Michael Barnes, lead vocals; Anthony Armstrong, guitar; Randy Armstrong, bass; Jasen Rauch, guitar; and Hayden Lamb, drums. End of Silence was produced by Dove-nominated producer/songwriter Rob Graves and mixed by Ben Grosse (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fuel, Sixpence None the Richer).
