Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Bliss” by Red Sun Rising.

Red Sun Rising is a band I’ve recently come across, even though they’ve been around since 2006. They were formed by high school classmates Mike Protech (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Williams (lead guitar) in Akron, Ohio. They signed their first record deal in 2014 and released Polyester Zeal which hit number 11 on the Billboard Hard Rock album chart. Two singles from that album each reached number 1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. They put out one other album in 2018, Thread, then went on indefinite hiatus in February this year.

Interestingly enough, the band changed their name to The Violent and released a new song last month called “Fly On the Wall.” In addition to their two studio albums, they have two independent albums which were released in 2010 and 2011, as well as three EP’s.

“Bliss” was off Polyester Zeal which featured Mike on vocals and guitar, Ryan Williams on lead guitar, Tyler Valendza on rhythm guitar, Ricky Miller on bass, and Pat Gerasia on drums. If you like that one, I also recommend “Worlds Away”, “Amnesia”, “Emotionless”, and “The Otherside.”
