Red Bee are back with intent on their brand new release: a 2 track EP!

Quick to dispense with formulaic rhythms and time signatures, Red Bee creates every one of their songs differently. An incredibly tight live band, Red Bee is explosive, atmospheric and energetic; they blow the minds of their audiences and leave them with sore neck muscles the next morning.

Chokehold will be available as a free download from the band's Soundcloud page https://soundcloud.com/red-bee on March 4th. The complete 2 track EP will be available in lossless, high definition format from the revolutionary new website www.openlive.com.au from March 14th.

Produced, mixed and engineered by Dylan Mitrovich (Breaking Orbit) at Lockup Studios Sydney, and mastered by Matthew Gray (Daysend, Powderfinger), the new material marks a creative turning point for the band.

Bearing their trademark slabs of riffage, insane polyrhythms and an all-powerful spine of rhythm, Red Bee have opted for a more organic and expansive sound for both tracks.  Diverse and unforgiving, Chokehold snarls and roars at every turn with surprising light and shade in its structure. Rip-roaring, triumphant and deceiving, I, Alone sees the band unleash huge, fresh grooves and their most addictive melodies yet.

In March, April and May 2015 the band will be on tour in support of their brand new 2-track EP Chokehold / I, Alone, co-headlining a major eastern states tour with Tempest Rising, followed by a Sydney support for Jerrico.

Since the release of their E.P. in 2008 and almighty debut album Ictus in 2012, Red Bee have gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the most technical, melodic and exciting bands the Australian hard rock/prog/punk/metal scene has to offer.

The delivery of their almighty debut album Ictus, a hectic live schedule and focused ambition has culminated in them playing at numerous leading domestic festivals including Soundwave Festival (Local Showcase Band – Sydney), Dead of Winter and Dimeday and supporting high profile Australian and overseas bands including Sydonia, King Parrot, Caligula's Horse, Flyleaf, Mother's Cake and Protest The Hero.

Lying somewhere between the fuzzy borders of punk, hard rock, prog and metal, Red Bee is Daniel Silk (vocalist/guitarist), Jim Silk (bassist) and Ian Dunn (drummer.)
