Red Sun Rising:

Mike Protich the lead singer and guitarist from the band joins me on this week’s Revelator to discuss the band’s new album release Polyester Zeal and upcoming tour with label mates All That Remains.

Mike and I also talk about their past shows with Pop Evil, both of us growing up in NE Ohio and his thoughts on expanding the bands reach.

The band’s latest single “The Otherside” opens up the interview and Mike shares some inside workings regarding the mud uses on him while recording the video.

Mike and I also talk about the early stages of the band from band names to day jobs.  Red Sun Rising new album is a signal of enlightened, reflection and positive reinforcement. Polyester Zeal is a powerful, smart composition of music.

Bridge To Grace:

Justin Little the drummer from the band Bridge to Grace joins me to discuss the band’s new album “Origins” and their upcoming tour with former guest Full Devil Jacket

Justin and I also talk about the bands early beginnings and the formation of the band as it is today. We also talk about the writing process and preparation for playing new song s lie in front of an audience.

A fixture on the rock music scene, Bridge To Grace has been impressing audiences with their energetic live show performance and songwriting skills since early 2012. In January, they released their second single “Bitch” to radio and have begun touring in preparation for the spring 2015 launch of their first full length eponymous album BRIDGE TO GRACE. Loaded with powerful songs that range from hard-hitting rockers to emotionally driven ballads, David Garcia (vocals), Alex Cabrera (guitar, vocals, piano), Christian Lowenstein (bass) and Justin Little (drum, vocals) have a musical chemistry like no other. Their unique and compelling sounds leave fans wanting more and their motto of “write a song a day” shows just how determined and dedicated they are to ‘making it.’ Not to mention Cabrera and Lowenstein are a mere nineteen years old. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Bridge To Grace was formed by Cabrera in 2010 when he recruited Lowenstein, whom he met while attending Atlanta’s Music Matters. Two years later, Little joined and finally Garcia, thanks to producer Rick Beato’s suggestion that vocal tracks of Garcia be sent to Cabrera. After one listen, Cabrera knew he was the voice for Bridge To Grace and the band was born! In late 2013, Bridge To Grace released their first EP “Staring in the Dark,” produced by Beato (Shinedown, Need to Breathe) for indie label Long Run Records. Their first single “The Fold” was released to radio in January 2014 and landed in the Top 50 on the active rock charts. That same year, the guys completed their first nationwide tour sharing the stage with bands such as Theory of a Deadman, Pop Evil, Fuel, Puddle of Mudd, Smile Empty Soul, Tantric, and Drowning Pool.

This Week in Revelator History:

This week I look back to Revelator #78 featuring NonPoint & Johnny Hawkins from Nothing More. Both bands are currently touring in support of their latest releases. On this episode you’ll hear Nonpoint single Breaking Skin and Nothing Mores’ Jenny.
