The Red Paintings Announce February UK Tour Dates

Dec 18, 2013

Fresh from their European tour with Mindless Self Indulgence, the dynamic group are set to return in February for their first headline tour.

Throughout November and December, led by frontman Trash McSweeney, the band captivated audiences with their spectacular shows of live art and music. Each one featured unique visual projections along with human body and canvas painters who joined them on stage to create artworks that reflected their music and energy.  Rockadia witnessed one of these dynamic shows and were simply blown away by their creativity and passion.  Didn’t catch our live review?  Read it here.

This latest set of dates is in support of their epic debut album’ The Revolution Is Never Coming,’  which was recorded and mixed with the late Bryan Carlstrom (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie) and released on 30th September through Graphite Records (LostAlone, Mojo Fury, InMe). The band have played festivals such as Big Day Out, Great Escape, Y-Not and toured internationally with acts including art-rockers Dresden Dolls, neo-punks Mindless Self Indulgence, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and post-rockers Mogwai but February 2014 will mark the band’s first ever headline UK shows.

As with every tour the band are on the lookout for local artists and volunteers to become a living work of art as one their human canvases. Email - .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
