The Red Paintings announce new US tour dates, debut on Modern Rock & CMJ Charts

The Red Paintings have announced new US tour dates supporting 90s alt-rockers Spacehog this December.
 
The Australian orchestral art rock band recently released their debut album The Revolution Is Never Coming to rave reviews. Their single ‘Wasps’ has picked up steam in the US including the #1 most requested track at KFMA in Arizona for the past week.
 
The band is sitting at #91 on the Modern Rock radio charts and #158 on the CMJ Top 200 College Radio charts, with ‘Wasps’ on rotation at several stations across the country.
 
The Red Paintings recently made their television debut on AXS TV performing two tracks from The Revolution Is Never Coming including the single “Wasps” and “You’re Not One of Them”.  mtvU call them “dark, cinematic” with a dynamic sound similar in spirit to NIN and 30 Seconds To Mars. View the official music video for “Wasps” at: http://youtu.be/e-iUVFcwZE4.
 
Known for their visionary stage shows incorporating live art, human canvases, and theatrics, The Red Paintings are a multi-faceted genre-spanning act incorporating everything rock from alternative to punk to industrial. Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure eight years ago, Trash McSweeney, the musical architect of The Red Paintings, sees color in sound, a condition known as synesthesia.
 
The Red Paintings kick off their UK & Europe theatre tour supporting Mindless Self Indulgence next week, before heading over to the US. The band will continue on the road through Christmas performing select dates in support of airplay. Additional dates will be announced, with the confirmed itinerary below.

Teal announce east coast tour supporting The Butterfly Effect

Sydney rock band Teal has a huge end of 2013 planned after announcing today they will open for The Butterfly Effect on their east coast tour dates in October.

The band have just completed a successful headline tour (including a sold-out show at Sydney’s Spectrum) and the news follows the release of the band’s debut EP ‘Hearth’ which has so far seen airplay for lead single ‘Solitaires’ on triple j, FBi, 4zzz and community radio nationally. ‘Hearth’ was produced by Lucius Borich, best known for being the drummer of Cog, Floating Me and currently The Nerve.

After signing with manager Hamish Smith at Blue Shift Entertainment, they have been occupied touring the east coast and playing shows with sleepmakeswaves, Dead Letter Circus, Closure in Moscow, The Red Paintings & Twelve Foot Ninja.

Mid-2013 saw the band signing with Sydney-based Bird’s Robe Records, joining an impressive roster of Australian and international art rock and progressive acts, including 65daysofstatic, sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings and The Crooked Fiddle Band.

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 artsubmissions@theredpaintings.com with 3 photos of your artwork or body.

The Red Paintings announce ‘Chinese Whispers’ Australian tour for September

Orchestral art rockers The Red Paintings have announced an intimate run of Australian shows for September, before heading to the UK and Europe for the first time in October.

The band will showcase songs from their forthcoming album, playing a series of small club shows in Sydney, Geelong, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth as well as co-headlining the Melbourne Progfest event.

Originally formed in Geelong, the band relocated to Brisbane, but have based themselves in Los Angeles for much of the past 3 years, working on their long-awaited album The Revolution Is Never Coming.
TRP were one of the first Australian indie acts to utilise the now popular crowd-funding concept, raising in excess of $150,000 in fan donations to fund their ambitious record.
The album will finally see a release date in 2013, with the band to embark on an ambitious world tour, spanning 5 continents and over 15 countries.
After several sold out national tours and performances at the Big Day Out and Great Escape, The Red Paintings rose to international prominence when they were hand-picked by Amanda Palmer to support the Dresden Dolls on their world tour of 2007, playing sold out theatres across Australia, the US, UK and Europe. Since then, TRP have toured across Australia and the US with Mogwai, The Posies, Alien Ant Farm, Atari Teenage Riot and more.

These Australian dates are the first since the band’s ‘Black Paintings’ tour in January and will feature a brand new stage show, including human canvases, live projections and painters.
