The two-time GRAMMY-nominated rock group RED who craft heavy, hypnotic, and heartfelt hard rock have unleashed their fourth album RELEASE THE PANIC in both Deluxe and Standard editions (Tuesday, February 5) via Essential (Provident Label Group/Sony). You have now received a digital copy of RELEASE THE PANIC in your inbox from Provident/SONY, thanks for listening.
|“Release the Panic expands upon their patent sound with a more immense and immersive scope. …on the first single ‘Perfect Life,’ they carry a massive stadium-size refrain into crossover territory while‘The Moment We Come Alive’ sails to divine heights on a tender piano and vocal crescendo. All said and done, it’s oneof the most epic, entrancing, and engaging hard rock albums of 2013 and RED’s best work yet.”|
–Rick Florino, ARTISTDirect, (February 4, 2013)
To record RELEASE THE PANIC, the group teamed with producer Howard Benson(P.O.D., My Chemical Romance, Daughtry) at his brand-new West Valley Studios inLos Angeles. RED have delivered a potent set of standout songs that were mixed by Benson and Mike Plotnikoff including “Perfect Life,” “Die For You,” “Release the Panic” and “Same Disease.” Also, RED has released a new video for the album title track, “Release The Panic,” The concept for the post-apocalyptic, revolution fantasy clip was created by RED who brought Chris Corrado (Eagle Eye, Charlie Wilson’s War, Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) on board to direct the video.
