US post hardcore heroes THE RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS returns to Australia this November/December and this time they are armed with their recent album The Awakening, their first studio album in 4 years. Expect to hear a bunch of new tracks and the as well as a bunch of older songs fans know and love.
THE RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS was formed back to 2003 by brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter and it was Virgin Records who snapped them up & released the bands RIAA platinum debut record Don't You Fake It in 2006.
Second album Lonely Road followed in 2009. They became fully independent in early 2010. Since then it’s being done "the Red Jumpsuit way". Am I The Enemy was released in 2011, ‘4’ on July 4th, 2014 and The Awakening in 2018.
The Awakening features the smash hit 'On Become Willing' which has spent the last 7 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Christian Rock Charts.
‘’The band gave the audience a great performance, and vocalist Ronnie Winter delivered spot on, spine-chilling vocals.’’ - Soundbites
‘’The set was filled with emotion which was pouring through the venue with a constant buzz radiating from everyone’’ – Rogue
Known for their spirituality, the bands lyrics cover an array of emotions. The darkness and the light, the struggles and the wins. The RJA message is ultimately one of hope and a reminder that "Even on the worst day that you're alive you're still surrounded by so many awesome things that you should be grateful for, if you choose to look at them." Ronnie Winter.
Joining them are Brisbane’s THE COMFORT. In their short tenure, they've already made their mark on the Australian alternative scene, having done multiple runs around the country alongside bands such as The Hunna, Storm The Sky, Young Lions, Don Broco and Saviour. Their EP Love has reached far corners of the globe with the band constantly finding new fans from New York, to London and beyond. With debut album, What It Is To Be due out November 9th, THE COMFORT have only just begun.
