BAND ANNOUNCES SOPHOMORE ALBUM THREAD OUT MARCH 30TH
U.S. HEADLINE TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Red Sun Rising return with the music video premiere for their first single, “Deathwish”, off of the band’s forthcoming sophomore release “Thread” out on March 30th (Concord Music/Razor & Tie). Watch the apocalyptic video, directed by Brad Golowin, premiering today with Vevo, here: vevo.ly/OJRNPi. The anthemic single is also available for purchase today on iTunes, Apple Music, and Amazon.
Produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI, Porno For Pyros) and mixed by Jay Ruston, Thread continues to expand on Red Sun Rising’s concept of mixing different genres and influences to create a unique sound. Physical pre-order’s for the highly anticipated release are available for purchase today on Merchnow. Digital pre-orders will be available everywhere starting Friday, January 19th.
When asked about the upcoming album, lead singer Mike Protich stated, “This album feels like a rebirth. Although Red Sun Rising played 140 shows on our last tour, it was not until we made this album that I felt we became a band. The growth and evolution of RSR that you will hear in our sound and our songwriting builds on our ‘Thread’ mentality (songs that people can love and sing with us but don’t fit a mold). We aren’t chasing trends and never will.”
Sun Rising made headlines with their debut full-length album Polyester Zeal and earned their own piece of rock radio history with two back-to-back #1 hit singles off of a debut album on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart. This marked the first time in over a decade that a band has achieved back-to-back #1s on the Rock Chart with its first two singles, “The Otherside” and “Emotionless.” Adding to their radio success, the band was nominated in the “Best New Rock/Alternative Rock Artist” category (Foals, Kaleo, Nathaniel Rateliff, The Strumbellas, Red Sun Rising) for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards. RSR was also named New Artist of the Year at the 2016 Radio Contraband Awards.
The band has announced their U.S. spring headline tour in support of the forthcoming release today. Additionally, Red Sun Rising will be performing at all of the major rock festivals this year. For all upcoming show dates, see below!
Red Sun Rising is Mike Protich (vocals/guitar), Ryan Williams (guitar), Ricky Miller (bass/vocals), Dave McGarry (guitar/vocals)and Pat Gerasia (drums).

POP EVIL ANNOUNCE 2017 HEADLINING
“ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NOW TOUR: RIGHT NOW”

RED SUN RISING AND BADFLOWER SUPPORTING

POP EVIL announce a new, highly anticipated 2017 headlining tour, “ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NOW TOUR: RIGHT NOW,” with support from Red Sun Rising and Badflower.  The tour kicks off in Louisville, KY on January 10, 2017 and wraps on February 24, 2017 in Detroit, MI.

rsrpopevil

About the tour, frontman Leigh Kakaty says, “What an exciting time to announce a full headline tour across the states as we launch our final single off UP  ‘If Only For Now.’  It’s no secret, as a ‘Rock’ musician this is a very difficult era to survive in. That’s why we take it very seriously to appreciate what is happening RIGHT NOW by living in the moment. We are not taking success for granted and will continue to waive the Rock ’N’ Roll Flag!  It’s time for the ROCK community to come together to spread the awareness that Rock N Roll is a force to be reckoned with.  Come join us this January as we embark on our Rock ’N’ Roll quest across the states on the ROCK ’N’ ROLL NOW TOUR: RIGHT NOW!”

Friends Red Sun Rising have been touring relentlessly off their debut album POLYESTER ZEAL which has achieved 2 straight #1 rock singles with “The Otherside” & “Emotionless.” Check out the video of their newest single “Amnesia” here.  Los Angeles based rock group Badflower just finished a tour with Billy Talent and will be putting out their debut EP this winter on John Varvatos/Republic Records.

 

Sick Puppies Live Acoustic California Radio Tour

Sick Puppies are fresh off the Hard Drive Live tour with Red Sun Raising, Stitched Up Heart and Hudson, they have been flying around the country to various festivals and I was able to catch an acoustic show at the Standard in Fresno, California hosted by 105.1fm The Blaze as part of their California radio tour.

The intimate setting of the venue really brought out new singer Bryan Scott’s personality, he is great with the bands fans and is very funny with a quick wit. He gets the audience involved in the show by asking for requests from older SP albums which he pulls off amazingly, if you didn’t know he was new to the band you wouldn’t figure it out. New single “Stick To Your Guns” is just as appealing acoustic style as the radio edit and with bass player Emma Anzai bringing more vocals to their set than ever before this band really is a much watch. Drummer Mark Goodwin and Emma Seem to really enjoy their new band mate and they clearly have a great time together which creates brilliant stage presence and performance.

Sick Puppies new album “Fury” is available on iTunes and at Best Buy or even better head to a show and buy a copy from the wonderful Mr. Gerry.

STITCHED UP HEART Join Sick Puppies on HardDrive Live Tour

Stitched Up Heart have been announced as part of the upcoming 2016 HardDrive Live Tour, which is set to hit the road next month and also features Sick Puppies, Red Sun Rising, HUDSON and Smashing Satellites on the month long trek. The tour is scheduled to kick off in Houston, TX on April 22nd and will run through May 21st where it will wrap up in St. Louis, Missouri. The 2016 HardDrive Live Tour is produced in conjunction with Ledge Entertainment. Please see below for a complete list of dates that Stitched Up Heart will be performing at.

image

STITCHED UP HEART forged their path in sheer passion and earned their keep in physicality and volume. Both on the road and in the studio, frontwoman Mixi and the Los Angeles-based quintet face 2016 and their forthcoming Another Century debut with brazen confidence. “Finally Free” is the clarion call for the band’s day of reckoning. Recorded by producer Mitch Marlow and captured on video by director Ron Underwood (also known as the high-flying frontman for labelmates 9ELECTRIC), “Finally Free” delivers on the promise hinted at on their self-released EP, Skeleton Key. Stitched Up Heart’s days of self-booked national van tours and Mixi being a Revolver “Hottest Chicks” mainstay was merely the beginning. Driven by a new level of sonic confidence and topped with the frontwoman’s soaring vocal verve, it’s the sound of a band unapologetically coming into its own.

Tickets, as well as VIP packages for Sick Puppies, will be available on Friday, March 4th at 10 A.M. via www.ticketmaster.com and at www.harddrivelivetour.com
