Superstitious or not The Red Paintings will be stopping off at The Factory on Friday 13th November as part of their UK tour.
Based in London and Los Angeles – and having been fortunate enough to already tour much of the globe – The Red Paintings are a five-piece group (guitar, violin, cello, bass and drums) whose sound evokes everything from child-like lullabies of the future, to tearing, biting, alternative-rock numbers. Their appeal reaches baroque-pop steam-punks, metal-heads, indie-rock fanatics, and beyond. They incorporate multimedia performance art wherever possible and seek submissions from local artists who paint the band’s live energy onstage in real time. With costumes, conceptual stage shows, live painting and human canvases their performance combines sound and visuals to create an experience that st…imulates the senses and minds of the audience.
The Red Paintings also maintain a strong social consciousness, which is demonstrated in the messages throughout their music and stage shows. The band works closely alongside doctors and experts to help their fan base with the ongoing battle with youth suicide and they frequently collaborate with organisations within the animal rights community to help educate and raise awareness about animal cruelty.
Supporting The Red Paintings for this leg of the tour is Them&Us, the musical project of vocalist/songwriter/producer Ami Carmine, and multivocalist/beatboxer/Songwriter & Producer Lee aka Killa Kela.
The duo have been calving away in the shadows, forging new sounds alongside producers James Rushent (Prodigy/DIOYY?/Biffy Clyro) Greg wellS (Katy Perry/One Republic) & Eliot James (Block Party/Kate Nash) which they’re now ready to unleash into the world.
Opening for US singer Kelis for her London performance at Proud Camden, and Scroobius Pips ‘We Are Lizards” event, Them&Us are gaining traction in both UK and US radio. With debut airplays from Eddy Temple Morris (XFM-London) and Kat Corbett (KROQ Los Angeles) Kat championing their song ‘Happy never After’ as her record of the day.
Them&Us will take you on the highest journey of musical landscapes, monster drops & vocal hydraulics, blended gracefully with enchanting visuals & theatrics.
