Produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI, Porno For Pyros) and mixed by Jay Ruston, Thread continues to expand on Red Sun Rising’s concept of mixing different genres and influences to create a unique sound. Physical pre-order’s for the highly anticipated release are available for purchase today on Merchnow. Digital pre-orders will be available everywhere starting Friday, January 19th.
When asked about the upcoming album, lead singer Mike Protich stated, “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.”
Red Sun Rising made headlines with their debut full-length album Polyester Zeal and earned their own piece of rock radio history with two back-to-back #1 hit singles off of a debut album on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart. This marked the first time in over a decade that a band has achieved back-to-back #1s on the Rock Chart with its first two singles, “The Otherside” and “Emotionless.” Adding to their radio success, the band was nominated in the “Best New Rock/Alternative Rock Artist” category (Foals, Kaleo, Nathaniel Rateliff, The Strumbellas, Red Sun Rising) for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards. RSR was also named New Artist of the Year at the 2016 Radio Contraband Awards.
The band has announced their U.S. spring headline tour in support of the forthcoming release today. Additionally, Red Sun Rising will be performing at all of the major rock festivals this year. For all upcoming show dates, see below!
