Entering into the spirit of Remembrance Day and the upcoming festive period the good boys of indie band Redtrack are giving hundreds of copies of their debut album Whole Town’s Heart to troops serving in Afghanistan.
The band have established themselves as firm favourites of the British forces after playing a gig for the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment earlier this year prior to their deployment to Afghanistan.
Last month the band dropped into the BFBS studio’s bfbs-radio.com to perform an acoustic set for the Jessie Aru show and next year the band will perform at the Big H Help for Heroes Festival at The Royal Highland Centre, which is expected to attract up to 30,000 people.
The album has been a huge hit with the music media and the band are passionate in their support of the troops with lead singer Billy Wright saying “Redtrack have always tried to support our boys as much as possible. We are quite close to one of the Para’s bases in Essex so are aware of the sacrifices made by the troops. It’s a great way for us to say thanks to the troops and give them some quality music to listen to when off duty!”
It’s been quite a year for Redtrack who released the album via Club Fandango and have just signed a publishing deal with Peer Music Publishing and have also been snapped up by Mainstage Artists Booking agency following their jaw dropping performance at Leeds / Reading festival on the BBC Introducing stage.
As well as featuring on the cover of this months Artrocker magazine, Redtrack have also been seen on retail screens in Topman and Burtons of all places.
This summer saw them play an exclusive set for Talksport Radio where they were introduced to the legend that is Eric Hall, who promptly presented lead singer Billy with Marc Bolan’s jacket the next day due to the blow away performance in front of Mr Hall.
Following the hectic festival schedule this summer, Redtrack will be touring in Holland later this month and will return with a new single in the New Year.
