A future of being headliners extraordinaire
According to their bio Red Line Chemistry's Dying For a Living is "everything the quintet hoped it would become" Guitarist Andy Breit shares, "We spent eight months working on this repertoire, wanting to deliver a big rock record that crushes the listener".
Listening to the first single Dumb Luck, Breit's words become rather prophetic. Dying For a Living has a big sound tethered in vocals stylized ala Alice in Chains and a wall of reverberation that brings back the days of when Brides of Destruction were new and hungry.
Hailing from the Midwest, Red Line Chemistry's (RLC) sound is as far away from apple pie and corn fields as you can get, sharing the stage with the likes of Sevendust, Chevelle, Shinedown, Drowning Pool and Seether, RLC has been keeping good company and with one listen of Dying For a Living one can see they are not only defining their own sound but forging ahead to a future of being headliners extraordinaire.
Singer Brett Ditgen observes "For us it defines our intent in pushing it to the limit, while staying true to one another. It defines the way we work together, pushing each other as hard as we can, while still trying to get along."
If push comes to shove, it's clear that Red Line Chemistry has the chops to say with conviction "This isn't Kansas anymore" and get to the stage to prove it.
