Some boy bands are here today, gone tomorrow. Midnight Red is here to stay with their latest 2101 Records/Capitol Records self-titled EP release MIDNIGHT RED due out on December 10th.
Always ones to put their fans, dubbed the ‘Redheads’, first the band rolled out their EP announcement by asking fans to go to their site to get the big news, when they arrived they were met with a “share to unlock” prompt. The fans shared the news socially and were rewarded with exclusive access to snippets track listing, and artwork from the forthcoming EP.
Joey, Thomas, Eric, Colton, and Anthony form the new group of exciting performers from across the country. They bring outstanding harmonies and electrifying dance moves to the pop landscape. No matter where they perform, it’s always their goal to make people want to get up and feel the beat.
