This mysterious RED teaser video just went up. What do you think it means? Discuss.

Looks like a new album in feb 2 me.
That’s almost exactly 2 years after Until We Have Faces. (In fact, it’s 2 years and 4 days to the date after the last one.) Pretty cool. Looking forward to that day so I can pick up their new album. Was kinda disappointed there weren’t any snippets of new material at all though.
They have clips on facebook of them tracking in the studio, so it’s most definitely a new album (also, Mike’s twitter said they just finished mixing last week).
Obviously a new album, seeing as both I&I and UWHF were released in February, each two years apart, and they’ve been Facebooking studio updates and such for a while.
The music sounds like part of an intro track. R3D’s gotta have one of those you know…
Gettin’ pumped waaaay too early! Thanks, R3D… Thanks….
Not sure about the background music; both previous album teaser trailers had intro music that didn’t make it onto their respective albums. I’m still stoked for new RED music :D
Looking forward to this. For sure. Long wait though :/ Anyhow, even if I don’t love the whole CD, they always manage to put out a handful of great songs I’ll listen to repeatedly for a long time afterwards. Feed the Machine!
My most favourite R3D song! \m/
Watch You Crawl.
They like putting albums out in feb thats for sure
Maybe they’re breaking up.
NOPE NOPE NOPE.
I’d buy that album ;)
^i see what you did there.
Red has been a “guilty pleasure” band for me. I just normally don’t care for the style that they play, but they do it really well. Lately, however, I feel like they just don’t have enough variety and their albums all just kinda bleed together. I do hope they can mix it up and branch out a bit.
Until We Have Faces seems to me to be the most diverse of the three of theirs. Feed the Machine is arguable their heaviest song, the piano driven “Hymn for the Missing” is likely their softest, you have songs like “Who We Are” with an almost disco-like beat, and a grungier feel throughout than I feel the first two albums has. It’s still a “typical” Red release, but I think they’ve been moving (albeit slowly) in a direction of more diversity.
This isn’t my favorite genre by any means, but I enjoy Red a lot more than most artists in the genre. (Linkin Park, Skillet, etc.) I think Red could make a fantastic album if they switch it up a little bit, but I have a feeling it’ll be same old same old. Still excited though! :)
Linkin Park is a little different. I would say Creed sounds more like Red than LP, lol.
Well they’re all kind of considered in the alt/nu metal genre is why I mentioned them. Although I do agree Linkin Park’s newer stuff is different. :)
I was just thinking about the rapping part of LP. I could never see RED rapping.
It totally could have worked on End of Silence! :)
Maybe they should get some rapper guests. Red featuring Lecrae? Could be pretty good.
The LP comparison is a way better one than Creed. Some of the song structures (especially on the first album) sound like they are ripped off directly from specific Linkin Park songs; not too mention that Michael Barness voice bears come similarity to Chester Bennington’s but not at all to Scott Stapp’s.
