Smashing together elements of metalcore, pop-punk, nu-metal, alt-rock, and classic metal with trap, EDM and pop, RedHook are primed for audiences in 2023.
Sydney’s RedHook have just dropped their wicked debut album, Postcard From A Living Hell.
After releasing a string of impressive singles, including Soju ft. Sly Withers, Imposter ft. Yours Truly, Say, Off With Your Head, and Jabberwocky, the album is just as eclectic as the singles suggested.
Smashing together elements of metalcore, pop-punk, nu-metal, alt-rock, and classic metal with trap, EDM and pop, RedHook are primed for audiences in 2023 - there are surprises, left turns, and no boring moments.
"Postcard Xo is a pretty dark song, both musically and thematically," vocalist Emmy Mack said about the dark, heavy album opener. Finding herself at rock bottom, struggling with depression, she fought through with a wacky RedHook composition to form one of the band’s strongest songs.
She continued, "It's about finding yourself back in the familiar landscape of rock bottom after a string of preventable fuck-ups, wrestling with feelings of guilt, shame and worthlessness, and wishing the worst for yourself - because that's exactly what you feel like you deserve."
RedHook are currently supporting The Smashing Pumpkins on their World Is A Vampire festival across the country, alongside 90s rock legends Jane’s Addiction, Aussie punk heroes Amyl And The Sniffers, and up-and-comers Battlesnake.
This May, the Sydneysiders are taking Postcard From A Living Hell on a huge headline tour. The band will be visiting fans across eleven regional and metro cities, with support from Bad/Love, Belle Haven and Grenade Jumper. Tickets and tour dates are available HERE. Following the national run, RedHook will head to the UK and Europe to support Stand Atlantic across seven dates in June.
Last year, RedHook completed a 28-date regional Australian tour as main support for metalcore titans In Hearts Wake. They also made their celebrated return to Australia's Good Things Festival, becoming the first band ever to grace the lineup twice, going from Sydney openers in 2018 to national Stage 5 headliners in 2022.
The band also made their critically acclaimed debuts at Australia's Groovin the Moo and UNIFY Gathering festivals and two of the biggest heavy music festivals on the planet, Germany's Rock am Ring and Rock im Park; a feat few Australian bands can claim.
Postcard From A Living Hell is out now. You can listen to it here.
