RED INK ON THE ROAD and NEW SINGLE ON THE WAY

After exploding onto the scene last year, RED INK have been climbing airwaves and tearing the roof off festivals and venues with their loud hook-laden rock. While preparing to unleash their next single, ‘What My Friends Say’, the band head out on the road to play a string of special shows along the East Coast.


The tracks
‘Audrey’, ‘Battlescars’ and ‘Catching a Killer’ have all received national airplay and media attention. RED INK played over 100 shows last year – alongside Biffy Clyro, Miami Horror and British India to name a few. The year of touring cemented them as the ‘one to watch in 2011’. “Watch” being the operative word. Having packed venues across the country as well as hyped guerrilla performances and festivals such as Peats Ridge, Playground Weekender, Hot BBQ and many others –RED INK are a band you can’t look away from.

The latest single isn’t too far away. ‘What My Friends Say’ is a clear step in the right direction. It captures the infectious energy of the band onstage, whilst offering a depth in song writing. The band’s lyrics weave a tale of heartache and confusion which is directly juxtaposed with angular and driving musicianship. Already a hit amongst their audience, the song is now destined to explode out of radio speakers. Listen out for it soon.

RED INK play the QV Summer Series in Melbourne’s CBD on February 26, Monash University Caulfield on March 2, AlumbraBar in Brisbane on March 3, Stones Corner Hotel in Brisbane on March 4, Beach Rd Hotel in Byron Bay on March 5, Deakin University Waterfront in Geelong on March 10, Moomba Festival in Melbourne on March 15 and The Hills Are Alive Festival in Gippsland on March 26.
