RED TIDE RISING LAUNCHES VIDEO FOR “THE OTHERSIDE”

Young Denver modern rock act Red Tide Rising have released the first video from their new album, The Rising.  “The Otherside”was filmed and directed by Mel Haynes, Jr  and shot in a warehouse in Denver.  The video also features the debut of new bass player, Michael LeBois. The video can be viewed here.

Formed in 2007 when the band members were still just in junior high school, Red Tide Rising has since gone from strength to strength, releasing three albums and touring alongside the likes of in This Moment, Hatebreed and others.  The Rising, produced by Mike McAree (In This Moment) and Jeff Kanan (Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, Randy Jackson, Staind, more), debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker charts at #3.

Some Press On The Rising:

Red Tide Rising offers one of the few bright spots in the modern hard rock genre. If you’re into bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Chevelle and Godsmack, you’d do well to give The Rising a try.-  Justin Gaines / Hard Rock Haven

Where Red Tide Rising will be successful is if people dig on Matthew Whiteman’s vocals. He’s a singer, when a lot of other bands might do a little bit more screaming in his shoes. He’s almost got too good of a voice for rock music – Bob Zerull / Zoiks!

The band is super tight. I love the guitar sound. I particularly enjoyed the song “The Otherside” – “Wizard” / Bloody Good Horror
