We play acoustic or plugged in, whichever you prefer.



The name the Scarlet Scourge derives from War World 2. During that time, women would send letters from home to their loved ones overseas, on the frontlines. Each letter played a vital role in motivating/encouraging our troops to get through the war and come back home. These passionate, heart felt letters were reminders of love and hope. Due to popular demand of letters each week V-Mail was invented (V standing for victory).The post office came up with a standardized size paper and envelope. Letters were written and then microfilmed. The microfilm was then sent in place of the letter, saving valuable space on overseas cargos. V-Mail also maximized the abundance of letters being shipped at once. As effective and as useful V-Mail was however, this wasn't always the case. On various occassions lipstick marks on the letters would gum up the scanning machines, causing havoc and delaying shipments. Sometimes V-Mail would take up to 6 weeks to get to their destination and by then it was already too late. This was the result of a "Loving Kiss." This is known as "The Scarlet Scourge."
