Red Line Chemistry
Hailing from Kansas City, MO Red Line Chemistry was born in 2004. Over the following years they grinded out the Midwest scene building a solid fan base and branding the RLC name as one of the elite and most promising groups in the area. With the help of local radio support in their hometown the band was able to score a spot on stage at Rock Fest 2007. This in turn led to continued support and opportunities for higher profile shows regionally and opening for national acts. In September of 2009 the band landed their first record deal with an independent label that spawned the highly acclaimed national releases “Dying for a Living” (2011), and “Tug of War” (2013).
Both albums achieved strong independent success at radio, which enabled the band to tour with the likes of Evans Blue, Saving Abel, Filter, Buckcherry, Nonpoint, veteran rockers Whitesnake and more. RLC also climbed the ranks in the festival circuit landing multiple appearances at Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma, Rockfest in Kansas City and more.
A highlight in the band’s career according to vocalist Brett Ditgen was recording the “Tug Of War” album with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who is best known for his work with Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, and The Deftones.
After an unexpected turn of events led to a split from their record label in late 2013 the band was forced to regroup. After a long hiatus RLC has found a new life teaming up with Pavement Entertainment and they are going back to theirs roots to bring to the world stage, a long awaited official and special edition release of their 2006 album “Chemical High and a Hand Grenade” combined with bonus tracks from their self-released 2007 follow up “Escape Plan”. Originally recorded as the band’s self-released debut album, “Chemical High and a Hand Grenade” was shelved after a limited release and taken out of print. “Escape Plan” followed suit and was retired from print in 2009.
All until now! Re-mixed, re-mastered, and re-invented, this album represents an unforgettable and long overdue part of the band’s career. Be sure to grab this unique piece of the Red Line Chemistry legacy!
