Band of the Day

The Red Paintings are our Band of the Day

January 4, 2015

Today we feature an amazingly passionate and vibrant band, The Red Paintings as our Band of the Day. People always ask me to describe a band by telling them who they sound like or what genre, etc. Well, if I had to describe the alluring music of The Red Paintings, I would be left speechless since their uniqueness can only be described by listening to them for yourself. Their music has been dubbed “Orchestral Art Rock” and when you see them perform live, you will completely agree that it is the perfect description. Their sound is everything from orchestra, punk, rock, alternative and much more. They are currently set for another North American tour which was to start last night in Berkeley but due to Trash McSweeney suffering from a back injury/spasms which we know can be actually debilitating to perform even the simplest task, let alone rock out on stage.

Band of the Day brings the spotlight on Roses Unread

January 3, 2015

Today’s Band of the Day brings the spotlight onto Roses Unread from Tennessee. They really caught our attention last year with their fresh new sound and with a new album on the horizon, they will once again slay 2015! Roses Unread are planning on releasing their new album in Spring and it is titled The Silver Lining. This is a very passionate band as they really want to deliver their signature sound to the fans. With this album, they took complete control over the recording process as they recorded in their home studio with no professional help. It was then mixed by Dave Cowell and mastered by  Stonebridge. Their first single from the new album, Fallen  is amazing. It brings out heavy metal and hard rock intertwined through melody and soaring vocals. The guitars give a robust punch of heaviness and you are treated to a combination of deep metal screams and powerful melodic vocals, all perfectly balanced to deliver their signature style. The single is set to be available on iTunes this week. Visit their iTunes [Read More]
