THE RED PAINTINGS ANNOUNCE USA ' FUTURELESS' TOUR, 26TH MARCH TILL 7TH APRIL, 2012

17 / 03 / 2012

We are excited to announce TRP will be hitting America from March 26th – April 7th, 2012 for a promotional run of dates labelled “The Futureless USA Tour”.



The FUTURELESS tour brings a creative new stage show to the USA, showcasing songs from the bands forthcoming album. The live experience incorporates cello, violin, piano, drums, bass, guitar and vocals. The show is an artistic reflection on the potential outcome of conscious human neglect of our natural resources. At each show, artists and audience members are encouraged to join the band on stage to express (through painting) their individual visions through connecting with the music. In addition to painting on traditional canvases, the artists also paint on “human canvases”. Each TRP stage show is a unique collaboration between the audience, art and the band, while in real time, recognizing and confronting important issues. Through this interaction, the band creates a uniquely more engaging experience.
This tour is in support of the official USA release of the newly mixed track ‘The Streets Fell Into My Window’ and award winning music video. The video has been screened and winning awards across film festivals and internet blogs all over the globe.

Check out the new video HERE
