Interview by Scottie Brown

Red Sun Rising will be releasing their debut album, Polyester Zeal, August 7th via Razor & Tie. The album was produced by Bob Marlene (Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Seether). Listen to their infectious first single “The Otherside” here:http://www.vevo.com/watch/USRZR1514801.  The song offers a glimpse of the band’s melodic and anthemic sound that features lead singer Mike Protich’s ferocious and unique vocals.

Red Sun Rising is Mike Protich (vocals/guitar), Ryan Williams (guitar), Tyler Valendza (guitar), and Ricky Miller (Bass/Vocals).  The band, from Akron, Ohio, came together in 2012 and is quickly becoming an Active Rock/Alternative music force. Protich and Williams grew up together and have been songwriting partners for half their lives.  Valendza, the uber young, and once child prodigy guitarist has been with the band for the past 20 months and has become a key part of the songwriting team.  Additionally, Williams and Valendza have perfected their “twin guitar” vibe reminiscent of the Gossard/McCready and Delson/Shinoda partnerships.  RSR is perhaps best known for the live performance and have spent the last 18 months supporting bands including Pop Evil, Seether, Sevendust, Shinedown, Chevelle and others.
