(Nashville, Tenn.) August 27, 2009 –Rock band RED continues to pick up career firsts with tracks from its sophomore album Innocence & Instinct, with the second single from the record finishing the week of August 18, 2009 as the No. 1 most added song at Active Rock radio.
Eight stations from around the country added “Forever” this past week – WRIF - Detroit; WWBN - Flint, Mich.; WCPR - Biloxi, Miss.; WRZK - Johnson City, Tenn.; KFRQ - McAllen, Texas; KRZR – Fresno, Calif.; KXFX - Santa Rosa, Calif.; and WXRX – Rockford, Ill. – marking the first time the band has notched the top spot on a “Most Added” list.
In other Red multimedia news, the band’s song “Pieces,” from its debut End of Silence (6/6/06), will be the featured song in the trailer for the new movie The Blind Side, starring Sandra Bullock, Kathy Bates and country crooner, Tim McGraw. The Blind Side is drawn from the true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American teenager from a broken home, who is taken in by an adoptive family and through hard work and determination, rose to be a first round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens in the 2009 NFL Draft.
Also, Red’s guitar player and primary songwriter, Jasen Rauch has contributed to the writing of Breaking Benjamin’s new song “I Will Not Bow,” the lead single off that band’s new Dear Agony record (9/29). The song is featured within the trailer for the new Bruce Willis action thriller Surrogates.
Red has been impacting the country with headlining slots and festival appearances during the summer months, and will begin a fall tour alongside fellow aggro-rock practitioners Saving Abel in late October, starting in San Antonio, Texas.

The Nashville-based group, made up of JASEN RAUCH (guitars), MICHAEL BARNES (vocals), ANTHONY ARMSTRONG (guitar) and RANDY ARMSTRONG (bass), has logged an impressive 500+ live shows since releasing the debut album End Of Silence in 2006, and has given fans a taste of new music on Innocence & Instinct while on the road in late 2008.
Since the 2006 emergence of the band’s debut, it has maintained a near-constant presence on the road, touring alongside notable rock names such as Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, 3 Doors Down, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Sevendust, Staind, Kutless, Third Day, Switchfoot and others, and rave reviews for the band’s live shows have poured in via both print and online outlets alike.
Much of the thematic material on Innocence & Instinct deals with the duality of mankind’s nature. The band also drew inspiration from the imagery of Dante’s Divine Comedy during the songwriting phase of the project. Included within the framework of Innocence & Instinct is a faithful, yet thoroughly reinvented, cover of the Duran Duran classic “Ordinary World.” The band simultaneously released a Deluxe Edition of Innocence & Instinct featuring four bonus tracks and a DVD featuring the “Death of Me” music video, a “making of” documentary and more.
