We just wanted to get in a room and play. Please enjoy our performance video for Cauterize, from our album “Declaration” which dropped in April of last year.

RED recently had to postpone their European “Declaration” tour for the 3rd time. The tour was originally scheduled for spring 2020, but covid-19 threw a spanner in the works. If all goes well, it will now take place this fall (‘Third time’s a Charm’). So we wait and will see …. dates and locations are listed below.

The video can be seen below.

cauterizeMetal has evolved over the past decade quiet drastically and many albums are hybrids of that metal evolution. In other words you seldom just get a thrash metal album in its purist sense, and many of today’s modern rock bands are a amalgamation of two or more particular genre’s. Remember when punk was punk undefiled? And what about hardcore? Hardcore today is not the hardcore I grew up with, for me it’s a hybrid evolution of the hardcore I grew up with. Don’t get me wrong I am not crashing down on the music scene of today, as there are a great many bands out there today who run circles around the bands of the past. What I am saying the waters are much deeper when you wade into the scene than what they use to be. There is an ark of great bands out there at the moment, of talented musicians bringing their own interpretation to the art of the musical world, and honestly I think you got to really bring something fresh, and earthquakingly good to rise above the pack, that makes people stand up and take notice. I think Tremonti succeed here in doing that.

To give you a brief rundown on the band, and the person, Tremonti is an American rock band founded and fronted by lead vocalist and guitarist Mark Tremonti, best known as the guitarist of the American rock band Creed, and the lead guitarist of American rock band Alter Bridge. Since his early years with Creed, Tremonti has received positive recognition as a guitarist and songwriter and has received a number of accolades, including one Grammy Award for Creed’s single “With Arms Wide Open.” He was also named “Guitarist of the Year” for three consecutive years by Guitar World, and in 2011 he was listed in Total Guitar magazine as the fourth greatest heavy metal guitarist of all time [Wikipedia] . The band plays in a melodic classical rock approach that is infused with a sort of  post-grunge influenced heavy metal music style with progressive rock leanings. Continue reading »

Speaking about the response to “Cauterize”, Mark told Pop Culture Madness: ‘It’s been the best feedback I’ve ever gotten on the solo stuff. I went over to Europe to do a press tour, and everybody who’s heard the record were just so complimentary and… I think, as a band, we try to… The only goal we have in the studio is to make it sound better than the last record, and everybody is… The unanimous decision is that it’s better than the last record so far.’

“Cauterize” was released on June 9 via Fret12. The follow-up to 2012’s “All I Was” was helmed by producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, who previously worked with Alter Bridge and Slash. Continue reading »

It was announced last week that bassist Wolfgang Van Halen will not hit the road with Tremonti due to commitments with his main act, Van Halen. Wolfgang said in a statement, ‘I am still part of Tremonti and very excited for the release of [new album] “Cauterize”, but unfortunately am unable to participate in the upcoming tour dates, both in the States and overseas due to my prior commitment with Van Halen for the upcoming summer tour in support of the ‘Tokyo Dome Live In Concert’ album.
