The Chicago guitar-drum duo who released their debut album of hard rock dirges on Lovitt Records is emerging from the studio with a expansive digital release campaign taking fans through the end of 2014. Redgrave will be recording new music this year, releasing two digital singles every two months. Once 10 songs have successfully penetrated the digital universe, the band will collect them all for a special vinyl-only release.
The new music will be recorded all over Chicago, avoiding traditional recording studios and opting instead for experimental spaces. The mission is community and comradery: Joining REDGRAVE is a host of close Chicago friends and supporters who who will be helping the band’s music come alive.
Beginning March 4, 2014, download the band’s first pair of singles — “Child” and “Man Child” (iTunes, Bandcamp). Mastered by Todd Rittmann of Dead Rider, mixed by Mike Lust and produced by Eric Abert and Allen Epley of The Life and Times with vocals recorded by Mead in the band practice space at Superior St, the two new songs capture the essence of REDGRAVE: dark lyrical wit and infectious stoner-rock blowouts that started with “National Act,” the band’s Lovitt Records debut.
You can stream both songs now at : http://redgravemusic.com/music/
“Man Child” featuring the piercing vocals of guitarist Angie Mead and the jackknife turns in rhythm by drummer Stephen Howard. “Child” creeps forward with darker overtones. “I hear them calling/But I don’t answer/In the 11th hour/It won’t look so sweet,” Mead sings on her siren call to tearing down the delusion of organized religion.
To kick off the yearlong release campaign, the band is playing two shows in March: March 1 at the Double Door with Dead Meadow, and March 28 at the Hideout, headlining with support from Electric Hawk and Circles.
We are proud to announce that we have signed Chicago's Wedding Dress to the label. We will release a single in the first part of 2014 and look to have a full length out shortly there after. The band features Erin Elders (Maps & Atlases), Mike Russell & Matt Lemke (Suns), Bobby Burg (Love of Everything/Joan of Arc) and Christian Dawson (Gypsyblood) . You can read more about them on Brooklyn Vegan, check out tunes on Daytrotter or watch a live session on Audio Tree.
