REDLIGHT KING TO CO-HEADLINE LIVE NATION ‘ONES TO WATCH’ TOUR

Alt/rockers Redlight King have been tagged to co-headline Live Nation's "Ones to Watch" tour as the band readies their sophomore album release, Irons In The Fire, the follow up to their successful debut Something For The Pain. The Ones to Watch Tour showcases some of today's best up and coming bands. The tour will kick off August 1, 2013 and will also feature Icon For Hire and Big B.

Redlight King made their debut with the release of Something For The Pain back in 2011. The album landed at #3 on Billboard's Heatseeker chart, #10 on iTunes Rock album chart while their song "Old Man" was the 13th most played song at Alternative Radio for 2011. Performances on Conan and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno followed and In 2012, Redlight King released the scorching rock anthem, "Bullet In My Hand," which immediately shot up to the top of the rock radio charts, while their song "Comeback" was featured on Avengers Assemble the musical companion to the mega-hit film THE AVENGERS.

Performing at last year's high-profile rock festivals including Carolina Rebellion, Rock On The Range, Rocklahoma!, Summerfest and Uproar, Redlight King wowed fans and critics alike with their incendiary live performance and anthemic songs. The band wrapped up 2012 by joining the Shinedown tour in Europe. "I'm excited to get out and play again for our fans," said Kaz, "especially the new songs. It will be great to connect with the people who have supported us along the way and continue to do so!"

At the core of Redlight King, frontman/songwriter Mark Kazprzyk (aka 'Kaz') has a knack for writing songs that hit a nerve and resonate with the band's hardcore fan base. On Irons In The Fire the sound is grittier, the guitars crunchier and the songs razor-sharp, full of angst and rebellion but always with a hint of redemption. The first single, "Born To Rise" will be available on iTunes on July 9 and Kaz had this to say about the song, "Born To Rise is about coming together, it's an anthem for those who overcome adversity, despite the circumstances we face, especially when the odds are against us." Irons In The Fire is set to release September 10.
