(Nashville, Tenn.) April 22, 2010 – Last night, modern rock band Red scored the trophy for Rock Album of the Year, for its acclaimed release Innocence & Instinct (2/10/2009). In addition, the band delivered a powerhouse performance, which included special guest Brian “Head” Welch, former lead guitarist of the multi platinum metal band Korn.

“It’s been an incredible night for us,” Red’s Randy Armstrong said backstage. “It’s an honor to be here among so many incredible artists and bands; plus we got to perform with our friend Brian Welch, which was amazing.”

The band’s sophomore album and relentless touring schedule has opened doors to significant mainstream market success. Innocence & Instinct debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and cracked the top 10 on mainstream rock charts with the single, “Death of Me.”

The Deluxe Edition of Innocence & Instinct – which includes four bonus tracks and a DVD featuring the “Death of Me” music video, a “making of” documentary and more – soared up iTunes charts, hitting No. 5 for top selling albums overall, No. 2 for top selling rock albums.

The Best Rock Album Dove award comes a year after Red landed a Best Rock Recorded Song Dove award for “Lost” and three years after winning the same award for its hit single, “Breathe Into Me.”

To date the band has earned nine consecutive No. 1 radio singles, the last four of which are off of Innocence & Instinct.
