When I Found out one of the hardest working bands out touring in my opinion was coming to Oklahoma city I was so excited to see what they have been up to since we last talked to them in K.C. on the Uproar tour. So thanks to Rizzo CLR tour manager for setting up another chance to check in with Candlelight Red.
We were Lucky enough to catch up and talk with Jeremy (guitarist) And Ryan (vocals) at the Oklahoma City Show to help us fill in the gaps of what’s been happening in the Candlelight Red camp.
After the Rockstar Energy Festival CLR jumped straight into a tour of the NE with Chris Jericho, and Rich Ward’s Band FOZZY. Directly followed by heading into the studio to record 9 new songs with Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose. The album is scheduled for release in about 6 weeks and will include all of the songs off of the Demons EP. The amazing part of this album is not only the music itself, but the time it took to record, 2 weeks start to finish which to me is unbelievable considering they have been perpetually on tour. Some of the songs were actually written the same day that they were recorded (over morning coffee heading to the studio)! Just goes to show what talented musicians these guys truly are. There music is riveting and intense, but combined with the high energy, in your face, crowd centered live performance it’s like a shotgun blast with both barrels to the face.
After Recording the album Candlelight Red headed out with NonPoint, then joined Sevendust/Lacuna Coil/Coal Chamber.
Candlelight Red never fails to amaze and just keep getting better every time around. If they are within a 200 mile trip do yourself a favor and catch these guys!
