On April 29, Ohio’s Red Sun Rising will grace the stage at the 2018 Monster Energy Fort Rock Festival in Sunrise, Fla. The show will be just one stop of the group’s current cross-country tour. The quintet recently released its sophomore record, Thread, which has already spawned the massive radio hits, “Deathwish” and “Left for Dead.” The new album is receiving rave reviews for the band’s deft ability to evolve its sound while maintaining its balance of big melodies and clever lyrics.

Red Sun Rising exploded onto the active rock music scene with 2015’s breakout album, Polyester Zeal. With Thread, all five members got in on the creation of the record. As vocalist Mike Protich recently shared with AXS about the new album, “This is the first time it’s felt like a real band.”

Joining Red Sun Rising on their current tour is California-based retro-rockers, Them Evils. The trio has recently finished recording its new EP with famed producer Kato Khandwala (Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, Blondie). The EP will release on May 4, and features the hits “She’s Got Nothin’” and “Got Me Rockin’.” The EP hits stores on May 4.
