2. To bid post the amount you are prepared to pay into the Facebook post comments. We are offering a silent auction option for those who do not want to make their bidding amount Public. You can submit a bid to us directly via The Red Paintings Facebook through the message box and we’ll repost the amount to the public bidding post under a pseudonym we choose for you.

*If the band does decide to take the Egyptian tour to another country there will be a separate but similar head piece created for that tour. However the winner will own the original exclusive head piece designed and worn specifically for the UK/EU tour. The money raised for this unique auction idea will go to keeping TRP alive on the road. Thanks for your support, good luck and let the bidding war for a piece of "Egyptian Trash" begin.

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."

Here is what the folks at MTV had to say about our new video: "To say that experimental art rock band The Red Paintings have a flair for the dramatic is an understatement. The group, the brainchild of Trash McSweeney, is well known for their raucous, bizarre and engaging live performances so we were definitely looking forward to seeing their latest video for “Wasps.” The result is a dark, cinematic and slightly disturbing clip that is not dissimilar in spirit to work from Nine Inch Nails or 30 second to mars. Watch our new video on the mtvU home page now!
