THE DIFFERENT INFLUENCES OF RED ROLL
Artist Corner: Red Roll
Italian band, Red Roll, is making 2022 their best year yet. They just released their new song, Shrift, which will be followed by the release of their full length album later this month through Universal Music Italia. The album was recorded in Monza, Frequenze Studios, January 2022, and according to the band, creating this album was very therapeutic. Each song depicts a state of mind, a marginality, an extreme; a departure from what is socially acceptable in daily life. A departure from what we say out loud in everyday life.
The band, Red Roll, was born in the summer of 2018. It was formed by four lifelong musicians. The band is composed of Passo on vocals and guitar, Leo on guitars and vocals, Cesi on bass, and Jonny on drums. Since that day, they have played nonstop. They have been making their dreams come true one step after another. Red Roll has found a way to get their music out there, despite the unprecedented times of the pandemic, which was full of restrictions, particularly in Italy.
This year the world will see the escalation of Red Roll as a band in the music world. The band just signed a distribution deal with Universal Music Italia for their upcoming album, and have recently signed with manager Andrea Dulio.
Give us the set up of how your latest music came to be?
Hello, thank you for having us here, It's a big pleasure!
We started writing our last album 2 years ago, in Italy during COVID restrictions. We were looking in our house, we couldn't go out and we couldn't rehearse together. So we started writing new ideas and sharing them between us on the internet. When restrictions ended we worked on those ideas together ....and with our producer Pietro Foresti. What is setting your music apart from what is being heard in the music industry today?
I don't know, there are so many bands and great artists today. Besides the music mainstream world, there is a parallel world, made by artists who are trying to express themselves and bring their music out. Probably in our music you can hear our personal different influences: grunge, metal, punk rock ....
How are you multiplying the ways your music is being heard?
Live shows are for sure our first dimension. So we are looking to play live as much as we can, bring our new album live on every stage! Apart from this we work on our social media platform, trying to tell you our day by day, our story, the behind the scenes of that stage! Why is it so important for you to continue to make new music that matters?
First of all, making music for us is something that we do for ourselves. It is something that makes us feel alive, that gives us a reason and a way to escape in "another" world! What does your latest music say about you?
Everything! Our last album is a very personal, introspective album! We usually say that writing this music has been like psychological therapy, a way to talk about our "inside world", our fears and our dreams! What is the message you are trying to convey for your fans?
Never stop believing in your dreams! Keeping up with you is always fun, where can our audience listen to you NEXT?
Guys, we are coming to the US soon! In January we are going to play in California... Some gigs are already scheduled and others are on the way! Please take a look at our website for the dates and we hope to see you there! Leave us with a meaningful story that connects to your latest music that is the ultimate takeaway for your fans?
We were in Bologna for the release party of the album. It was a live concert where we were going to play the full album! We made it in one of the greatest clubs in Bologna, our city. It was a super important night for us. We set the stage and we were ready for sound check.... Leo, our guitarist, forgot at home his guitar. This is Red Roll
