GRAMMY-Nominated Rock Band RED's New Album Gone Available Now Posted: Friday October 27th, 2017
GRAMMY-nominated rock band RED's sixth studio album, Gone is available now
everywhere. True to the band's discography, the new project continues RED's
honest exploration of darker themes and deep human struggles, with epic
musical soundscapes that are raw, melodic, intense and emotional, all at
the same time. The debut single off of Gone, "Still Alive," continues to be
featured on prominent playlists as well as in the Top 40 on the Active Rock
chart. See the lyric video below.
Gone's 10 tracks, a richly textured and powerfully felt musical narrative,
is them responding to those same questions we all ask. With songs that
explore Ecclesiastes-like questions such as, "What is the meaning of life?"
and "What is my legacy when I'm GONE?" RED draws additional creative
inspiration using "Artificial Intelligence" (A.I.) as a metaphor for the
human experience, similar to the sorts of themes featured on HBO's hit
series "Westworld. Having been together for more than a decade, these
themes have special meaning for the band as lead singer Michael Barnes, and
identical twins Anthony Armstrong and Randy Armstrong, contemplate their
own careers in music and their existence as a band.
"We have had countless conversations with fans over the last 11 years
touring, and people share their hearts with us," Red's bass player Randy
says. "They share their insecurities, their fears. Us having a faith and
the background that we do, we carry those things with us no matter what
kind of questions we ask ourselves because our music has that redemptive
side. We find our way out of the darkness."
