Columbus, OH — Red Wanting Blue is a band that logs many miles in their bus touring the nation. The fact that they have survived for over a decade without the support of a record label is proof that an explosive live show, hard work and well-crafted songs are a formula for longevity at any level. Red Wanting Blue will release their eighth album, These Magnificent Miles, on August 19. Produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, REM, Willie Nelson), this new collection of songs is an autobiographical journey telling the tale of the many adversities they are up against. All the while, continuing to reach their incredibly loyal fan base, in addition to embracing their independence. This album marks a major accomplishment for Red Wanting Blue.
Red Wanting Blue’s previous release, The Warehouse Sessions (2006), is an intimate live album/DVD recorded in their warehouse with 100 adoring fans, and debuted at #1 on Awarestore.com in its first week of pre-sale. 2004’s Pride: The Cold Lover was another notable indie success, also debuting at #1 on Awarestore and landing several songs on the CBS/VH1 program, “Love Monkey” as well as the CW hit show “Life is Wild.” In addition, the songs “The Air I Breathe” and “The New Cool” from their upcoming release These Magnificent Miles were used on this season of “Life is Wild.”
