Formed in 2009 with an average age of only 18 years old, The Red Threat worked tirelessly to prove that they were musically mature beyond their years. That goal was succeeded with their 3 song debut “A Collaboration of Sharps and Flats” which earned them the opportunities to play both local and touring dates with bands such as Ten Second Epic, Barenaked Ladies, These Kids Wear Crowns, and Living with Lions. With the success of their demo, The Red Threat decided to hit the studio with friend and accomplished engineer Greg Wright to record their debut album “Trees”. The album was released on October 9th, 2010, and was supported by multiple Canadian tours. The tours proved to solidify The Red Threat as one of Canada's up and coming young bands, landing them multiple press opportunities and a showcases in Toronto's International Indie Week Festival, Mazzfest in Saskatoon, and a main stage slot at Boonstock 2011. Their hard work did not go unnoticed, and in May 2011 they signed a licensing deal with IndiePool/EARRS, as well as went on to win the “People’s Choice” award at the 2011 Edmonton Music Awards.
The Red Threat builds their foundation on addictive rock choruses, post-hardcore influenced guitar melodies and above all, passion filled lyrics. With their new album “Trees”, The Red Threat explores the relationship that human beings have with themselves, and the consequences we all share as a result of humanity’s choices. Poised to conquer every venue that comes their way, The Red Threat’s explosive live show and relentlessly determined attitude will continue to fuel their drive to stand among giants.
