Ring Ring Rouge.....They'll make you're telephone ring




Having recently heard about a recently acclaimed performance at Friars Court in Warrington I decided it was time to investigate 
Ring Ring Rouge 
more closely.  





They're an alt/indie band from Burnley and are now signed to Jack to Phono Records.  Described as “a band with an obvious and unique talent” by Woho-Music.net, they've impressed audiences mainly across the North West .  Formed in late  2010, Ring Ring Rouge  crafted a distinct sound inspired by bands like The National, Radiohead, Interpol , Modest Mouse and recorded a well received debut EP.







The band’s early shows included runs to the finals of two North West ‘battle of the bands’ competitions and prestigious slots on the Hebden Bridge Trades Club Christmas Unsigned and the Prestwich Shangri-La arts festival, with Ring Ring Rouge’s effortlessly melodic guitars, punctuated rhythms and soaring vocals catching attention.  In the Spring/Summer 2011, Ring Ring Rouge took a break from playing live to expand on their progressively developing sound and returned to venues across East Lancashire in the Autumn of that year with a stirring new set that caught the attention of London based independent record label Jack to Phono.

 


After some time in the studio The Red Telephone EP was released on March 5th and featured the tracks 'Never Leave Home', 'Reason For The Cure', 'Padiham Justice' and 'Play On'. They launched this with a session on BBC Introducing Radio Lancashire and were currently featured as part of the Burnley Express 125th anniversary for the local newspaper.



The band are.....


Gary Starr – 

Lead vocals, guitar, bass
Michael Connell – 
Guitar, drums/percussion, keyboard, backing vocals
Clive Durkin – 
Bass, drums, backing vocals
Shaun Starr – 
Guitar, bass, drums


Now the big news is they've recorded a new single called 'Today' which will be released on the 15th October , recorded at 
The Combination Of Studio in London. Here's an little peek at the video which they recorded in Blackpool, filmed by the band and directed by Tom Hoole.  It's a poignant, musically and lyrically well crafted song, perfect for the radio airplay it's sure to get.
