Red Sun Rising’s Confidence Shined In Camden Red Sun Rising Delivered A Short But Powerful Performance
CAMDEN, NJ- On Sunday August 26, 2018 Godsmack & Shinedown brought their high-octane roadshow to the BB&T Center in Camden NJ. Known for delivering pyrotechnically punctuated performances both bands are clearly headliners in their own right. Also on the nights roster, the Akron Ohio based rockers Red Sun Rising.
Red Sun Rising was originally formed in 2007 and has undergone a few lineup changes over the years with current members being Mike Protich on guitar and lead vocals, Ryan Williams on guitar, Dave McGarry on guitar and vocals, Rick miller on bass and vocals and Pat Gerasia delivering the beats. RSR’s is currently touring in support of their latest album Thread, which dropped this past March via Razor & Tie.
Red Sun Rising played a rather abbreviated set of six songs but managed to spread things out a bit, covering a variety of songs from their catalog. Mike Protich and bandmates took the stage to “Clarity” off of their latest album Thread, quickly establishing themselves as confident, competent musicians. Being the opening artist for a show of this magnitude must be rather daunting, but RSR quickly won over the crowd with their sold sonics and veteran stage presence. RSR continued with “The Otherside”, off the bands Polyester Zeal album. I couldn’t help but notice how many people rushed to their seats to catch a bit of RSR’s set. RSR wrapped up their set with “Emotionless” and then “Deathwish” off their latest album.
Red Sun Rising’s six song set really showcased its stage presence and music delivering a powerful performance that I couldn’t get enough of. I wish RSR all the best and look forward to catching another of their (full length) shows.
