No sophomore slump for RED SUN RISING giovedì, 5 aprile 2018 22:08 by madseason
Red Sun Rising - Fascination

Alt-rockers Red Sun Rising sophomore album, Thread, was released last week, on March 30, via Concord Music/Razor & Tie. Produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI, Porno For Pyros) and mixed by Jay Ruston (Adrenaline Mob, Pop Evil, Steel Panther), the disc continues to expand on Red Sun Rising's concept of mixing different genres and influences to create a unique sound.

Red Sun Rising lead singer Mike Protich stated about Thread: "This album feels like a rebirth. Although Red Sun Rising played 140 shows on our last tour, it was not until we made this album that I felt we became a band. The growth and evolution of Red Sun Rising that you will hear in our sound and our songwriting builds on our Thread mentality (songs that people can love and sing with us but don't fit a mold). We aren't chasing trends and never will."

Red Sun Rising debut full-length, Polyester Zeal, was one of my favourite albums of 2016; with its two leading singles, The Otherside and Emotionless, it scored two back-to-back No. 1 hit singles on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart: this marked the first time in over a decade that a band has achieved back-to-back No. 1s on that chart.

Thread confirms Red Sun Rising as one of the best rock band around: check the video for the new single Fascination clicking on the image and stream the whole record on Spotify now!

Red Sun Rising - Deathwish

One of the most anticipated come-back album of the year is Red Sun Rising's new release Thread.

The follow-up to Polyester Zeal, who featured two Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart No.1 hit singles, is set to be released next March 30, again on Razor & Tie Recordings. Producer of the new album is Matt Hyde (Deftones, Porno For Pyros, No Doubt), while Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Steel Panther, Bowling For Soup) took mixing duties.

The first single off Thread is titled Deathwish: it's an anthemic, highly entertaining track that gets the anticipation for the new full-length rising even more.

IAMDYNAMITE to release debut album domenica, 4 settembre 2011 22:14 by madseason
iamdynamite - supermegafantastic

IAMDYNAMITE came to my attention being the opening band for the current Blue October's american tour. They are an indie-rock duo (Chris Martin aka C-Mart and Chris Phillips aka C²) that is gonna release their debut album "SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC" on September 13th, via Brando Records.

They're managed by Blue October's bass player Matt Noveskey, who also produced the album, with Jay Ruston (Bowling For Soup, Metallica, Jars Of Clay, Meat Loaf) mixing it.

IAMDYNAMITE style is quite unique: just guitars and drums with an indie raw approach, groovy hooks and somewhat of a western movie soundtrack feel.

Confused? You can judge by yourself, as the whole album is available for streaming here.
