Biography

When three musicians come together to create a work of art, a driving force is created that no one can stop. Facing an unknown challenge, these three musicians known as Red Tuesday rose up and forged their own path to success. Their music reveals components from a varied range of musical groups and styles, characterized by a grooving beat, flowing bass lines, powerful vocals, dynamic guitar riffs, and occasional woodwind arrangements. Never satisfied with repeating the same formula over and over, Red Tuesday is driven by a plethora of musical genres to create music that expresses something distinctive and vivid in every song.

Two musicians - Paul Sipio and Mike Hrycenko met in the summer of 2001. Both were seeking to form a band where they could unleash all genres and styles of music and put them together into a unique sonic experience. They tried to form a band with other local musicians, but were unsuccessful in their many attempts.

With starting a new band, they needed a skilled guitarist who could also sing well. In this, they found Dan Wythoff, a local musician who could play guitar, write excellent songs and sing melodies with precision. After a few weeks everything seemed to be going perfect. The songs were original, catchy, complex, and at times, humorous as well. But they still didn’t have a name. After about a week of going through ridiculous names, they came up with the name of Red Tuesday – which is taken from the events of 9/11/01. It was a Tuesday, and Red symbolizes the blood shed from all the people that had lost their lives for America.

In October 2001, rehearsals started, and before long the new Red Tuesday was getting some exposure playing various shows. In April 2002, they self produced and released their first eight song demo, “Catalyst”, which was basically sold to a local, dedicated fanbase. For the next year, they took it the next level. They released their second demo, “Ver.2.7.” (the 2 standing for second album/demo, and the 7 standing for seven songs). Released in June of 2003, it showed how much they grew in maturity, musically and lyrically. They continued to play more and more shows (benefits, basement shows, larger venues, etc.) and wrote even more songs. Almost a year later, “Audible Thoughts” was released and helped push Red Tuesday into bigger shows and more promotion.

After even more shows and searching through a plethora of names, Red Tuesday’s most recent ten-track production, “Day In, Day Out” explores the concepts of living through obstacles in relationships and life itself. As their fourth full-length album released on May 17, 2005, it is has become available online and at local record stores. Each track comes from a totally different style. They've incorporated almost every genre into a style no one else can be compared to. Red Tuesday attracts audiences of all types to their music. Their musical influences are very diverse, ranging from Tool to Jethro Tull, to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to Chick Corea, to Jeff Buckley.

While Red Tuesday has mostly been under the title of "Progressive alternative metal", they've also been called Jazz, Hardcore, Indie, Emo, Punk, Rock, and Funk. A refreshingly original and talented musicianship is definitely present with this band. Maybe it’s their songwriting, inspiring vocal melodies, and hardcore brutality that puts this band apart from most. Or maybe it’s just a combination of all those traits and qualities. Whatever the case may be, as the music of the 21st century paints a new landscape, Red Tuesday is sure to be right there with the change of times and the evolution of music.
