Based in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, the band began rehearsing regularly in January 2003 and already possessing a wealth of live experience between them, played their first gig to a packed out West One Four in April, airing songs that would form the basis of their first mini-album ‘Where Is It’.
RSR have since been gigging relentlessly and writing new material with designs on attracting some industry attention and expanding their fan-base. Their last gig was a support slot at the Highbury Garage where they celebrated a successful first year together in January 2004 with a well-received show promoted by the Mean Fiddler Group. Their second recordings are now complete and form the upcoming release ‘Time Of The Month’ which explores all the ranges of the band’s styles and leaves the listener begging for more.
Red Storm Rising have been described as a blend of Punk, Mod, Grunge and 80’s Cock Rock, resulting in something akin to stripped down, uplifting and exhilarating skate-punk. Their live shows are some of the most powerful and energetic around, with catchy tunes that never fail to get the crowd bouncing along.
Just don’t call them Indie…
