about

The much-anticipated debut album from orchestral art rock group The Red Paintings

The band's biting alternative/progressive rock features alongside a 35-piece orchestra, 22-piece choir, harp, theremin and more.

As the late Bryan Colstrum described it "it's like a 21st Century War of the Worlds."
