Los Angeles, CA – July 1, 2013 – Orchestral art rock group The Red Paintings have announced the first leg of an extensive tour throughout the U.S., UK, Europe, and Australia, ahead of the release of their new full-length studio album The Revolution Is Never Coming (The End Records) on October 1st.The band will kick off their North American tour July 10th supporting …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Known for their vibrant stage shows incorporating live art, human canvases, and theatrics, The Red Paintings are a multi-faceted genre-spanning act with a lively and visionary approach. The band is currently seeking submissions from artists, to curate the live onstage art show to incorporate into their stateside musical performances. For consideration, visit the band’s Facebook page and/or email to submit three jpegs of your art. A full tour itinerary is listed below.
Following the success of a sold out UK club tour with The Pineapple Thief, the band will be bringing their intimate acoustic show to the US, before heading back to the UK to headline the Bizarre Stage at Rebellion Festival, the world’s biggest independent punk and alternative event, on August 9th. The extensive touring news follows a busy end to 2012 that saw The Red Paintings kick off their worldwide campaign with a 16-date US tour and 40-date tour of the UK & Europe.
The band has also been invited to join punk-lords Mindless Self Indulgence on their massive UK & Europe tour in November and December. The invitation follows a sold-out U.S. theatre tour earlier in the year, where the bands established a rapport.
Now available worldwide, the first single taken from the bands’ latest release “You’re Not One Of Them” has already picked up steam overseas, having been added to over 140 stations across the UK & Europe, including spins on XFM, Kerrang, Q and the BBC. Peaking at #40 on the US FMQB commercial radio chart, the track also currently sits at #98 on the German college radio charts. The uniquely creative video clip for the track follows a series of award-winning clips from the band that have been screened at film festivals worldwide and featured in Australia on the television music network Channel V and popular music program Rage. View the video for “You’re Not One of Them”:
