VANCOUVER WEEKLY PREMIERES NEW "JULIA" VISUAL FROM RED HERRING -  WATCH HERE! 

RED HERRING'S NEW "NEON" EP OUT NOVEMBER 6TH, 2020 -  PREORDER HERE!

With just under three weeks until the release of their new EP, Red Herring partner up with Vancouver Weekly to premiere the visual for "Julia". The visual can be viewed at  THIS   location. "Neon". the group's upcoming release is due out November 6th, 2020. Pre-orders are available  HERE!

"This is the most romantic song on our album ’Neon’. I was reading a lot of Alan Watts at the time and I think you’ll find a lot of him in the lyrics, "says vocalist and songwriter Enrico Renz. Adding to the romanticism of the song, Renz explains the visual's cinematography, "the video is looped stock footage of a gondola in Venice, shot by a Bulgarian filmographer known as 'valio84sl." 

The Neon EP features the complete original 1980s lineup: Enrico Renz on vocals/guitar, Stephen Nikleva on guitar, Martin Walton on bass, Steve Lazin on drums; plus hired gun collaborator (upgraded to full band member) Id Guinness on keys, and the game-changing Tania Gosgnach on backup vocals. While not every cut is as turbulent and zany as Brain Song, every track on the Neon EP is rich in story. Driving, imaginative soundscapes mesh with taut, refreshing lyrics to make every song feel like a scene in a David Lynch movie.

"Neon" is comprised both of material written many years ago as well as newer songs. The EP represents the sense of promise of the band's early material which never left their minds. What began as a collaboration between songwriter Enrico Renz who was studying philosophy at UBC and guitarist Stephen Nikleva who had just finished recording with Ferron became a 4 piece band and now has now grown to a 6 piece powerhouse.

Last month Red Herring shared the first single, “The Brain Song” from their upcoming EP along with an official music video. The video can be viewed and listened to  HERE! 

PRESS QUOTES:
"Red Herring were well ahead of their time when they first emerged in the early '80s, and somehow, still sound well ahead of their time throughout Neon. Truly one-of-a-kind." - Andrew King / Canadian Musician

Invariably described as “quirky,” Red Herring’s songs are rooted in a uniquely angular, jangly, guitar-driven pop (cf. “Taste Tests” or “The Brain Song”), with unusually philosophical lyrics and an overall sound not entirely dissimilar from vintage Talking Heads. Since their reunion, recent compositions show them ambitiously expanding their palette to include unbridled romanticism (most fully realized in “Julia,” on their upcoming EP Neon) and elements of Latin-and-Romani-inflected folk music (as in the yet-to-be-recorded “Consuela”). One of Vancouver’s best, and best-kept, musical secrets of the 1980’s, making a welcome and unexpected musical return. - Allan MacInnis / Free Lance Writer

ABOUT RED HERRING:
Formed in 1984, by the end of their first year they had won CITR Radio's first Shindig! Within the following year their debut EP, Taste Tests was released with critical acclaim from the Vancouver Sun and Discorder Magazine, earning the band the title “the thinking man's dance band" with their art-rock sound, and thought-provoking lyrics. The band also released two music videos for "Taste Tests" and "The Crab Song" which aired on Much Music (a Canadian Cultural Institution) in the 1980s.

In the past 36 years band members have gone on to make their mark in Canadian music with members recording or touring with bands as diverse as Sarah McLachlan, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Veda Hille, and Ray Condo.
