There are several artists using this name: Red (USA) (often typeset as R3D) is an American alternative band formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2004. Musically influenced by artists such as Linkin Park, Chevelle, and Muse, Red's style is the rare symphonic rock which blends guitars and strings with passionate vocals. The songs on End of Silence deconstruct struggles that listeners face, while painting a picture of redemption in the midst of brokenness. According to lead vocalist Mike Barnes, Red stands for the blood of Christ and what it represents: passion, pain, but ultimately, redemption.
Its first single,"Breathe into me" topped the charts at #15 on the US mainstream rock charts. The four-member band (Mike Barnes, lead vocals; Anthony Armstrong, guitar, BGV's; Randy Armstrong, bass, piano, BGV's; and Jasen Rauch, guitar - drummer Joe Rickard is currently touring with the band and is credited on their new album, Innocence & Instinct) has been tirelessly developing the eleven-track album with Dove-nominated producer/songwriter Rob Graves over the past two years. End of Silence was mixed by Ben Grosse (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fuel, Sixpence None the Richer). Bass guitarist Randy Armstrong, identical twin brother of guitarist Anthony Armstrong, hopes their music communicates to listeners that they are not alone in their struggles.
Already touring heavily in the mid-west and west coast, Red has quickly made many fans along the way. With more than 50,000 friends on MySpace (www.myspace.com/dropofred), this band has made it a priority to write each and every fan back personally. Red is serious about the relationships they enjoy with their fans.
