The Red Paintings announce UK and Europe tour dates for November/December

Orchestral art rock group THE RED PAINTINGS have announced a massive 35-date tour of the UK and Europe, marking their first UK/European shows since supporting the Dresden Dolls on their sold-out theatre tour of 2007.

The innovative Australian band are well known for their unique and theatrical live show, combining live body painting on stage with visual projections and their emotional, biting alternative rock. Having recently completed an intimate Australian club tour, these shows will feature a brand new stage show focusing on the band’s passion for the natural environment and animal conservation.

The upcoming tour is the band’s first headline run in the UK and Europe, but will also include a support for The Memorials, the project of ex-Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, in Hungary.

The Red Paintings rose to prominence when they were hand-picked by Amanda Palmer to support the Dresden Dolls on their sold out 2007 world tour. They have toured the US regularly over the past few years and have supported Mogwai, Mindless Self Indulgence, Atari Teenage Riot, Saul Williams and Alien Ant Farm, as well as performing at Great Escape, Big Day Out and Livid Festivals.

The Red Paintings will be showcasing songs from their forthcoming album ‘The Revolution Is Never Coming’, due for release in 2013.

TRP have also invited local artists and human canvases to join their creative circus on stage – to be involved, email with 3 photos of your artwork or body.
