RED TIDE RISING RELEASE COVER VERSION OF TEARS FOR FEARS CLASSIC “MAD WORLD”

While on tour this summer with Sevendust, Denver modern metal merchants Red Tide Rising broke out a reinterpreted version of the Tears for Fears classic “Mad World” (also made popular by Gary Jules), which they soon discovered was becoming one of the many highlights of their set.  Upon returning home, the band worked up a permanent version of the song with producer Mike Luce (Drowning Pool) and entered The Keep Studios to track it.  Matthew Whiteman says, “We covered Mad World because it fits into the theme of our music. The choice allowed us to create a dark and melodic spin to the song that showcases our diversity in tonality that is demonstrated from the first note to the last. Besides, the song is a band favourite and we always wanted to pay tribute to it.”

As of today, “Mad World” can be downloaded from iTunes.

29 November sees the band heading out on another nearly month long jaunt with brothers in arms Drowning Pool (also featuring Gemini Syndrome and 9Electric).  The tour kicks off at The Black Sheep in Colorado Springs and concludes on 23 December in Dallas, TX at Trees.  Whiteman adds, “The last time we were out with Drowning Pool they gave us a tour experience that changed this band. Their constant hospitality towards their support bands was something we had never seen. Their dedication to making sure this genre carries on was shown in their passion to help develop smaller bands like they did with us . inspired by the entire Unlucky 13 tour, we were more focused than ever on reaching the creative vision of the Voices Ep. We now have the opportunity to play with them once again and show them how big of an impact they made 2 years ago. We will be playing the entire Voices Ep in front of their crowds in hopes of growing our family. One things for sure, It’s always a great time with our brothers in Drowning Pool and were honored to be with them again! See you on the Not So Silent Night Tour!”
