Important Show announcement!

14 / 09 / 2014
Was a great sadness to hear the news this week that a suspected 15 year old boy burnt down the Manchester & Cheshire Dogs’ Home. Over 60 precious animals burnt to death. Read all about it HERE. More on the dogs home, and the incredible work they do, right HERE

We are always open to lend a hand when we can to protect the animal kingdom and so to play some part in showing our appreciation to the centre at this crazy time of need we will be joining the line up for what is looking like a huge fundraiser at the Sound Control venue in Manchester, UK on Sunday 21st September. Doors: 16:00 - 22:00. TRP hit the stage at 8pm sharp

All artists, DJ’s, staff, security and more have given their time for free to make it one incredible all day event with every penny going straight to the home.

We would love for all our UK fans to join us and support the cause as all proceeds raised will go towards rebuilding the centre and taking care of those animals still in need of care.

If you can’t make the show, but would still like to donate, please head to link below for info.

We are also on the lookout for the right artists to paint on stage and human canvas for the show. The art work will be auctioned on the night and again all monies raised going directly to the rescue centre.

We love animals so much and it brings us such sadness to even imagine the howling screams of all these animals together in cages burning. An awful nightmare that has become a sick reality.

Please donate if you can or at the very least consider a non meat eating diet to help reduce the slaughter of animals on the planet we share with ALL these incredible creatures.

Tickets available HERE / Facebook event page HERE

Sincerely Trash McSweeney

TRP NEW single 'Wasps' gets another US radio add...

15 / 01 / 2014
Exciting news for us in America with yet ANOTHER major radio add. Big thanks to Wisconsin’s #1 rock station 95 WIIL ROCK who announced today they have added our new single 'Wasps' on high rotation. After testing the track on their afternoon 4:20pm drive show called “Puff or Pass,” phones unexpectedly ran hot. Over 160 listeners phoned and texted in to “puff” the track expressing that they were blown away after hearing the single on air for the first time on WIILROCK. It’s not often a new band can get a response like this on such a big rock station so we are overwhelmed by the support. The station broadcast reaches Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee & Chicago. Thanks for the support everyone. Want to request ‘Wasps’ or call in with some TRP love? Hit them up directly on twitter @95wiilrock.com

TRP take out Album of the year in UK press

02 / 12 / 2013
'The Revolution Is Never Coming' voted as Album of the Year for 2013 by SupaJam.

"Lady Gaga got the headlines for trying to mix art and pop, dressing the part and producing stylised songs, and on Artpop she largely failed to convince. Luckily the rock world has The Red Paintings, who are theatric and fully capable of achieving the grand gestures they wanted. It’s a dense album and can take a few listens, but then it obsesses you."
