Two-time Grammy-nominated, rock group Red landed into the Top Ten (#7) for the second time last week with their fourth album “Release the Panic” (Essential/Provident/Sony).
Today, Wednesday, February 27, the Nashville-based foursome premiere the video for the hard-driving first single “Perfect Life” on VEVO.
Watch the clip for the song which ArtistDirect hailed by saying the group carries “a massive stadium-size refrain into crossover territory,” while Revolver magazine added that the track is “an anthemic heart-pounder…” (February 2013).
From the release:
“Release the Panic” is gaining a critical mass as Red’s best effort to date. The LP expands upon their patent sound with a more immense and immersive scope. …All said and done, it’s one of the most epic, entrancing, and engaging hard rock albums of 2013 and Red’s best work yet.
The group includes Michael Barnes (vocals), Anthony Armstrong (guitar) Randy Armstrong (bass) and Joe Rickard (drums)–teamed with producer Howard Benson (P.O.D., My Chemical Romance, Daughtry) at his brand-new West Valley Studios in Los Angeles.
Red have 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 band is currently on tour this winter/spring for the Winterjam Arena Tour. Expect the group to announce a nationwide U.S. spring tour soon.
