Back to their roots! With In Our Blood, Redlight King are once again doing exactly what they do best, an album full of anthemic rock hits.
Besides having already entered the US Billboard charts in 2011, collected more than 44 million streams across their top 10 songs, and have been featured in movies like The Italian Job, Iron Man 3, and The Avengers, Redlight King's music has been featured throughout ESPN, NASCAR, NFL, CFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. Moreover they have supported shows for Linkin Park, and toured with bands like Shinedown, Awolnation, Halestorm, Sick Puppies and many more. Now they are back with an album full of power and motivational hits.
What separates In Our Blood from so much of mainstream rock today is its unguarded sense of optimism. These are challenging, complex themes, but running through all eleven tracks is a defiant undercurrent of hope. “I feel like my music has always been about telling people’s stories and saying what’s really going on from the grass roots perspective, with a bit of hope in the message,” said the band's Mark Kasprzyk.
It comes across loudly in the title track, an absolute haymaker with mighty hooks and a towering chorus. Elsewhere, on lyrically-poignant cuts like “Paid Off” and “Evil Lies,” Kaz takes aim at political hypocrisy and the erosion of truth in today’s divisive landscape. For a double dose of driving riffs and searing blues rock vibes, “King Again” and “Eye Of A Hurricane,” pair turbocharged tempos with some of the vocalist’s most personal lyrics yet. “Heavy Heart,” written after losing his marriage, is a captivating slice of balladry, rendered in lush melodic textures, and closer “My Execution” considers the perspective of a man making his final steps towards his last moment on earth.
In Our Blood is more than a sign of life – it’s the continuation of the musical spirit from 2013!
