After performing for over 500,000 people during the Winter Jam tour, two-time Grammy-nominated rock group RED is getting ready to hit the road this spring on a headlining tour in support of their latest album, RELEASE THE PANIC. The tour will be stopping in GRAND RAPIDS on TUESDAY, APRIL 16 at THE INTERSECTION with support from We As Human and Soutbound Fearing.
RELEASE THE PANIC (Essential/Provident/Sony), the group’s fourth album, has already sold over 90,000 copies in just over a month and marked the group’s second Top Ten album debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The hard-driving first single “Perfect Life”—which Revolver magazine declared “an anthemic heart-pounder…” (February 2013) and ArtistDirect said carries “a massive stadium-size refrain into crossover territory”—has reached #25 on Active Rock radio this week, continuing to gain in the key 18-35 year-old demographic. To record the critically-acclaimed new album, RED teamed up with producer Howard Benson (P.O.D., My Chemical Romance, Daughtry) at his brand-new West Valley Studios in LosAngeles and has delivered a potent set of standout songs that were mixed by Benson and Mike Plotnikoff including “Perfect Life,” “Die For You,” “Release the Panic” and “Same Disease.”
The Nashville-based group—Michael Barnes (vocals), Anthony Armstrong (guitar), Randy Armstrong (bass) and Joe Rickard(drums)—will also be appearing at two festivals this spring: “Welcome to Rockville” in Jacksonville, FL and “Rock on the Range” in Columbus, OH.
