A tour de force, DECLARATION features lead singer Michael Barnes crisscrossing the anthemic breadth of RED’s unique balance of raw refinement and poised aggression, blending nu metal and alternative hard rock with both classical and orchestral elements.
"Having honed its orchestral crossover for the past 18 years, RED simply dials it in like no other band,” notes Max Heilman of RIFF Magazine. "The unorthodox arrangements sneak their way through bold rock and roll, until you’re flying through the stratosphere with a harmony-fueled jetpack.”
This kind of journey is by design, as guitarist/writer Anthony Armstrong discussed with Loudwire’s Chad Childers in a feature story this week. “Every time we do a record, we try to do that, putting the tracks in order to where you do go on a bit of a ride.”

The ten-song DECLARATION includes the Loudwire-premiered lead single “The Evening Hate” and follow-up singles “From The Ashes,” “Sever,” “All For You” and “The War We Made,” which has been heard live by a few hundred thousand music fans at arenas around the USA this year before COVID-19 interrupted tours worldwide.
RED recently rescheduled their US, Europe and Russia tours and teamed up with YouTube Live and Facebook Live to reach a global audience with its “DECLARATION” event that happened on April 3. During the event they performed acoustic renditions of their latest music, as well as answered questions from fans.
