It has been 12 days since RED SUN RISING released Thread, the highly-anticipated follow-up to their 2015 hit debut CD Polyester Zeal. Three singles have hit the airwaves, two amazingly cool videos have been created (Fascination and Deathwish), and the music world is buzzing over the remarkable musicality of this Ohio band.
Cathy Moore with Rock All Photography Music Magazine had a chance to talk to RED SUN RISING’s vocalist, Mike Protich, recently and found out more about the new record, the upcoming tours, and the overall success of the band.
RED SUN RISING is currently on their U.S. spring headline tour in support of Thread. The band will be performing at all of the major rock festivals this year and will support The Used on their summer tour. Later in the year RED SUN RISING will be joining Godsmack and Shinedown on their national tour.
RED SUN RISING is Mike Protich (vocals/guitar), Ryan Williams (guitar), Ricky Miller (bass/vocals), Dave McGarry (guitar/vocals) and Pat Gerasia (drums).
