(PCM) The two-time GRAMMY-nominated rock group RED have recently unleashed their fourth album “Release The Panic” via Essential (Provident Label Group/Sony). I can say without a doubt that RED have truly re-invented themselves with this record, it is like nothing you have heard from this band in the past. It is incredible with “Release The Panic” being the band’s fourth album that they have truly taken a risk by adding in many electronic elements,more melodic vocals, and even a bit of pop sensibility and made it work flawlessly.
To record RELEASE THE PANIC, the group teamed with producer Howard Benson (P.O.D., My Chemical Romance, Daughtry) at his brand-new West Valley Studios in Los Angeles and together they have created an incredibly original and unique album that banishes any stereotype genres you may have grouped a band like RED in the past.
While tracks such as “Damage”, “If We Only” and the album’s first single “Perfect Life” still remain true to the sound of RED past, stylistically experimental tracks such as “Breathe Into Me”, ‘Die For You”, and “So Far Away” find the band in new territory and they pull it off effortlessly.
RED are currently on tour this winter/spring for the Winterjam Arena Tour. Expect the group to announce a nationwide U.S. spring tour soon.
