The Red Paintings have announced new US tour dates supporting 90s alt-rockers Spacehog this December.
The Australian orchestral art rock band recently released their debut album The Revolution Is Never Coming to rave reviews. Their single ‘Wasps’ has picked up steam in the US including the #1 most requested track at KFMA in Arizona for the past week.
The band is sitting at #91 on the Modern Rock radio charts and #158 on the CMJ Top 200 College Radio charts, with ‘Wasps’ on rotation at several stations across the country.
The Red Paintings recently made their television debut on AXS TV performing two tracks from The Revolution Is Never Coming including the single “Wasps” and “You’re Not One of Them”.  mtvU call them “dark, cinematic” with a dynamic sound similar in spirit to NIN and 30 Seconds To Mars.

Known for their visionary stage shows incorporating live art, human canvases, and theatrics, The Red Paintings are a multi-faceted genre-spanning act incorporating everything rock from alternative to punk to industrial. Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure eight years ago, Trash McSweeney, the musical architect of The Red Paintings, sees color in sound, a condition known as synesthesia.
The Red Paintings kick off their UK & Europe theatre tour supporting Mindless Self Indulgence next week, before heading over to the US. The band will continue on the road through Christmas performing select dates in support of airplay. Additional dates will be announced, with the confirmed itinerary below.
