DEBUT ALBUM THE REVOLUTION IS NEVER COMING
NOW AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE IN STORES AND ONLINE
Los Angeles, CA – November 5, 2013 – Orchestral rock band The Red Paintings have announced they will join 90s alt-rock luminaries Spacehog and Sponge on tour in December. The Red Paintings recently released their highly anticipated, debut full-length The Revolution Is Never Coming (The End Records), to rave critic reviews. The first single “Wasps” is currently being added to U.S. radio playlists across the country and is now officially in rotation at KFMA in Tucson, Arizona and WARQ in Columbia, South Carolina.
“‘Wasps’ definitely stands out, and because of that it’s reacted quickly,” said KFMA program director Chris Firmage. “Top 10 phones already!”
“This format needs some ‘guts’ now more than ever,” adds Matt Lee, MD at WARQ in Columbia, SC. “‘Wasps’ is an incredible song that shows elements of Nine Inch Nails and Rob Zombie but with a new, exciting twist. Industrial beats with crunchy guitars but melodic vocals and thought provoking lyrics.”
The band will continue on the road through Christmas performing select dates in support of airplay. Additional dates will be announced, with the confirmed itinerary below.
The Red Paintings recently made their television debut on AXS TV performing two tracks from The Revolution Is Never Coming including the single “Wasps” and “You’re Not One of Them”.
