RH: Thanks! We’re happy to be here! We love London! We live pretty close to what we assume is known by the locals as “pissing alley.” Lots of people stopping to take a leak…lots of people.
V: Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Los Angeles”?
RH: Yeah we have a single called Los Angeles, we recently released its official video online. Interesting it was actually the last song written for our EP. We finished writing the lyrics the night before recording its vocals.
We’d love to hear your thoughts about the single!
V: Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
RH: It was more or less about being dumped by a girl from California over an extended period of time.
V: How was the film experience?
RH: It was extremely fun to shoot the video!
It’s always great to work with our producer Rob Gardner and director Lance Nelson. Quite a bit of the footage was shot during our EP release concert.
V: How was the recording and writing process?
RH: The writing process was great and actually spanned over about 7 years. The recording process however was intense! We used crowdfunding from our fans to find the album and we felt a lot of pressure to not let them down!
V: What did you learn from your time on AGT?
RH: Don’t go on TV talent shows. TV contracts can make things difficult! Still, it got our name out there! We have been lucky to meet some really cool people because of it!
V: How’s your new album coming along?
RH: Great! We are about halfway done recording it! We have worked with so many talented musicians. It has been a blast!
V: Any tentative release date or title in mind?
RH: We don’t want to pull a Frank Ocean and release the album a year late. But we are hoping to release our new music this spring. As for a title, we were thinking “Captain Geech And The Shrimp Shack Shooters” or “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb.” It’s a long title, but we feel that it really captures the essence of what we’re trying to say with the music.
In other words, we have no idea what we should name this album.
V: What’s been like to work with London Symphony Orchestra and how did that relationship develop?
RH: We haven’t recorded with the LSO yet. We go record with them at Air Studios on the 17th of this month. Our producer Rob has worked with them on two previous occasions so he was able to set up this opportunity to work with them.
V: Would you call this your most cinematic album to date?
RH: I would say it’s on par with some of our previous recordings. However, we have decided to really embrace the fact that this is going to be different than what a lot of other alternative rock bands are doing on this outing.
V: Any plans to hit the road?
RH: Yeah we have seven upcoming dates here in the U.K. before we head back to the states. We are looking forward to seeing how this part of the world responds to our music!
V: What else is happening next in REDHILL’s world?
RH: We are planning a BIG return concert in the early spring to kick off the release of our second release!
