The pride of Akron, Ohio – Red Sun Rising – are gearing up for what should a banner year for the NEO Ohio rockers. Their new album Thread – the much anticipated follow up to Polyester Zeal, which garnered two chart topping hits – ‘The Otherside’ and ‘Emotionless’ – will hit on March 30th. The good news is – we get to hear the new single ‘Deathwish’ right now. This one has hit written all over it!
Lead singer Mike Protich discusses the upcoming release:
“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 RSR 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.”
Along with the new album comes the inevitable support tour. Here’s the dates that have been announced so far.
