Red Wanting Blue

Columbus, OH–Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue has been touring the heart of America for more than a decade. The band, led by the distinctive baritone voice of frontman Scott Terry, has built a loyal following during that time while self-releasing several roots rock albums. Throughout, Red Wanting Blue fielded label offers from indies and majors alike, but never found a suitable partner until now.

Fanatic Records has fallen in love with the band’s These Magnificent Miles album and will give it a national release on July 27, 2010. Fanatic will also issue a deluxe double-LP edition of These Magnificent Miles with full-color LP sleeves in a gatefold jacket. Red Wanting Blue will begin to expand its touring to new markets this summer to support the album (see full schedule below).

Produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson, REM) in Columbus and mixed in Los Angeles, These Magnificent Miles captures the essence of a Red Wanting Blue concert, an addictive live experience that has earned the band a legion of devoted fans who stomp, cheer and sing along with every song. It’s an album for all of the musicians who live life on the road, lifting the veil on what it means to be an underdog in the world of touring rock bands.

Red Wanting Blue’s relatable story is now the subject of a feature-length documentary being produced by Davenport Theatrical (“Avenue Q,” Will Ferrell’s “You’re Welcome America,” “Altar Boyz”) that draws its focus on the band’s tireless stamina and dedication. “There is a romance to this circus life,” Terry says. “With a little luck, and a lot of support from the greatest fans a band could have, we hope to ride this open road like a hammer into history.”

“You can almost feel the movement of the earth while listening to These Magnificent Miles.” – The Rock and Roll Report
