Red Light Company

Black Rose

Recommended Posts

I've haven't done an introduction to a new band's thread for a while. I know there are some fans around the forum of this band which I've been following since I saw them opening up the Queen's Tent on the Saturday of Glastonbury (which is where this lovely picture comes from):




Red Light Company are five piece alternative rock band based in London, England. The band was formed in 2007 by members Richard Frenneaux (vocals/guitar), Shawn Day (bass), James Griffiths (drums), Paul Mellon (guitar) and Chris Edmonds (keyboards). They came together following an advert Richard posted on the internet, to which Shawn quickly responded, and moved from his home in Wyoming, United States to London in order to pursue making music with the rest of the group.


Currently signed to Lavolta Records, Red Light Company receive favourable comparisons to Arcade Fire, U2 and Editors (whom they have supported).


The Album Fine Fascination is out on the 16th February.

They might not be anything news, but they have something which sets them above similar bands

As far as I'm concerned, if it ain't on Amazon, it ain't happening.
