The Red Suns release ‘Thrown Off The Back Of Nowhere’, their debut album, on 11th  November following a series of singles that have seen their profile grow from their native Merseyside across the UK.

Led by lyricist Dave Dowler, The Red Suns show flashes of their home town from the ‘big music’ of The Icicle Works to the melodic brilliance of The Coral and the majestic grandeur of The Bunnymen whilst avoiding copyist clich├ęs. An idea of the   North,   its   sense   of   scale   and   space,   a   history   of   producing   grand   and expansive music shot through with romance in isolation pervades the album as Dowler weaves tales across a musical landscape that allows both the grandiose and the delicate equal billing.

Recorded at the legendary Monnow Valley in Wales and produced by Simon Duffy and Mike Page for Tri-Tone, the album features debut single, ‘Make Time’, a Clash Track of The Day, and follow up single ‘Moonlit Skies’. Dave remembers it as a dark but productive time:
Our old band had split up, guitar music was going through a massive change, it pissed it down with rain every summer, the recession had just hit and CD sales were rocketing down at the fastest rate since rock and roll began. We had an old, large, cold practice room near the tunnel entrance in Liverpool, in a run down, dirty area with lots of smackheads around. A very dark period but it fuelled my love for Arcade Fire
(especially the darkness of ‘Neon Bible’), Radiohead, The Smiths and those, amongst others, informed the songs on the album’.

The Red Suns have already drawn appreciative producer nods from the likes of John Leckie (Stone Roses), Mike Crossey (1975) and Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Atoms For Peace) and supported Miles Kane, British Sea Power and The Coral alongside their own, increasingly frequent headline shows. To coincide with the album release the band embark on a series of dates across the UK, all dates will be announced shortly.

‘Thrown   Off   The   Back   Of   Nowhere’   is   released   on   11th   November   by   Robot! Records via Tri-Tone / PIASUK
