Red Line Chemistry Look To Land Sucker Punch

| 25 July 2013 | Reply

Kansas City, MO — Red Line Chemistry have just returned to the road support of their current album – Tug Of War.  The band will serve as support to Nonpoint and Whitesnake on selected tour dates all summer long.

The band’s brand new single “Sucker Punch” impacts at Active Rock radio next week.  Red Line Chemistry have now had five consecutive Top 40 hits at the format including the first single from Tug Of War: “Paralyzed.”

“’Sucker Punch’ is a high energy rock song based lyrically on paths of narcissism, addictions, and the struggle to regain control amongst chaos and distraction, lead singer Brett Ditgen remarked.

Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Stone Sour) Tug Of War’s 12-track offering exhibits tremendous growth in the band’s songwriting, production, and collaborative process.

The selection of Tug Of War as the album title reflects the dichotomy of the repertoire and the process of creating it.  Guitarist Andy Breit offers, “About half the songs are heavy and aggressive, while the others are more subdued and musical.  Those dynamics colliding has a lot to do with why we chose Tug Of War as the album title.”  Singer Brett Ditgen adds, “We wrote this record as a democracy.  We have a foundation to work through our differences when we are writing and recording.  It’s about finding a balance and trying to make it come together in a way that makes all five of us happy with the result.  If we can do that, we feel other people will be happy with the result as well.”

Following the independent releases of Chemical High & A Hand Grenade (2006) and Escape Plan (2008), Red Line Chemistry joined forces with Bulldog Productions in 2009 and released Dying For A Living in 2010.  The singles “Dumb Luck,” “You Don’t Get It,” and “Ultragigantor” all charted at active rock radio.  The acoustic EP Easy Does It followed in late 2011.  In 2012, as a bridge track, the single “Unspoken” was released to rock radio achieving great success in the active format.  It also represents the band’s first in-studio collaboration with producer Nick Raskulinecz, and marks the beginning of the Tug Of War recording sessions.

Red Line Chemistry are: Andy Breit (guitar), Tom Brown (bass), Brett Ditgen (vocals), Dave Fyten (guitar), and Mike Mazzarese (drums).
