Bio

Flood of Red don’t expect much. All that these 6 19/20 year olds from Airdrie, near Glasgow, have ever wanted to do is be in a band together and make ends meet somehow. All they’re interested in is building a foundation for a career.
Maybe that’s why in the past 2 years they’ve played over 350 shows between Scotland, England, and Wales, as well as, in Europe. Maybe that’s why, when breaking down on the M6 on their way to London, whilst near Manchester, to record their debut EP ‘Lost in the Light’ for Smalltown Records, they decided that they wanted to be towed to London and sleep in the van for 3 weeks when sense said to go home and come back again another day, and thought nothing of it. And maybe that’s why they’ve rendered the die-hard following that they already have in place through such relentless touring and an open-armed approach to the people who like their music.
For Flood of Red it isn’t about fame or fortune. It isn’t about seeing their faces on TV or in magazines – It’s about being able to do something they love for the rest of their lives. It’s about going onstage and playing their hearts out and giving it every single bit of energy they have, and then some – Live, Flood of Red are a sight to behold; Guitars flying everywhere, bodies flailing across stage, a skinny front man with a huge voice and bigger presence, a drummer smacking his kit like it were the faces of his biggest foes and a synth player just that commands your attention; Bust noses and split heads are not uncommon – It’s truly electric. Flood of Red are simply a band people can relate too, and they’ll do anything they can to prove that.
