RED To Headline ‘Of Beauty and Rage’ Tour with Islander and 3 Years Hollow
RED's new album, 'Of Beauty and Rage,' will be unleashed Feb. 24. In conjunction with the release, the band has lined up a headlining tour with supporting bands Islander and 3 Years Hollow. The trek kicks off Feb. 19 in Piitsburgh, Pa. (dates below).
Frontman Michael Barnes talks about the new album, saying, 'Of Beauty and Rage' is about suffering and finding the beauty in that. I know that no one in this world, especially in this country, likes to suffer, but we only become the strong individuals we are today from the trials and hardships we have faced in the past.”
Bassist Randy Armstrong adds, “The album takes a look at the darkest, most inner struggles we face, whether they are self-inflicted or brought on by the outside world. Red has always tried to challenge listeners to be real with themselves and to confront their struggles head on."
In conjunction with the album, RED also launched a PledgeMusic campaign where fans could pre-order the album along with an exclusive graphic novel inspired by the band's music and videos.
3 Years Hollow are touring in support of their latest album 'The Cracks,' and frontman Jose Urquiza is excited to go on the road with RED, saying. "I first started listening to them when I heard the song 'Breathe Into Me.' Then I got really deep into their album 'Until We Have Faces.' It's a massive record. So this is a pretty great feeling to be able to share the stage with these guys."
