The critically acclaimed multinational art rock group The Red Paintings will next month bring their extensive world tour to the UK as they embark on a ten date trek across the country. Their live shows are being hailed as among the best in the world, and truly one of a kind unique experiences.

Part of a live experience with The Red Paintings is a focus on the visual aspect of the performance, with every tour featuring a different set design and unique costumes among the distinctive elements. Local artists are invited to submit their works to The Red Paintings who will invite certain artists to the shows to paint their works on human canvasses, who are volunteer models who offer to be painted as part of the show. The Red Paintings frontman and creative director Trash McSweeney has a sublime vision that a show should be as visually stimulating as well as just a musical experience.

Now it is over to YOU!. The Red Paintings are seeking both artists and human canvasses to get involved with their tour next month, so if you are an artist (hobbyist or professional), The Red Paintings want to hear from you. If you wish to volunteer yourself as a human canvas and be part of a once in a lifetime experience, The Red Paintings want to hear from you.

‘The Revolution Is Never Coming’ was 5 years in the making and features a 35-piece orchestra, 22-piece choir and more across 13 tracks of biting, futuristic alternative rock. The album was recorded and mixed with the late Bryan Carlstrom (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie) in world-class studios around the globe. Typically ahead of the game, The Red Paintings raised donations from their fans to fulfil their creative vision long before the likes of PledgeMusic and IndieGoGo became household names.

Hi I'm Gareth, A foolish Welshman that has found himself living in Scotland. I adore live music and this all started back in University when a friend dragged me along to my first gig and I saw Travis. From then on I spent a lot of time going to see bands from rubbish uni bands that had formed one drunken night to the mighty Blur. When I finished uni there was a 10 year gap between gigs (long story). Now though, on any given day of the week I can be found in the venues of Glasgow. With regards to my music taste I love anything with great lyrics and heavy drums. When I was younger (and still am) I was obsessed with a band called Alisha's Attic.
When not at a gig I will be found at my computer playing games like Prison Architect, Hearthstone and Wolfenstein.
