Red Tide Rising will have a new face behind the drums as it heads out on tour with Sevendust and Crobot.

The band has announced that Glendon Crain (John 5’s Loser, Hollywood Undead, gODHEAD) will fill in temporarily for regular drummer Matt Guerin as the band heads out on the road.  That is because Guerin is currently enjoying his honeymoon with his wife.  Guitarist Andrew Whiteman had only good things to say of Crain when discussing his appointment.  “I’m super psyched to have Glen Crain filling in for us on this tour!,” Whiteman said.  “He’s a badass drummer who also happens to be friends with our buddy Mike Luce from Drowning Pool and he’s a great fir for this run. He brings it every night and we mesh as if we have always been in a band together.”

Crain echoed Whiteman’s sentiment about joining RTR.  “I’m very excited for the opportunity to fill in on drums for Red Tide Rising,” he said.  “The resolve to create quality music is very apparent in this group and that in turn pushed me to bring out the best I’ve got. We hope to see you guys out on the road with Crobot and the mighty Sevendust!”

Crain, a Kansas City native, started his recording career with Capitol Records band The Feds.  He recorded and performed with that band from 1995 – 2001.  In 2001 he joined The Losers, which featured Rob Zombi/Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5.  He stepped away from Loser in 2004 and joined gODHEAD in 2005.  A stint with Hollywood Undead followed his time in gODHEAD from 2008 – 2010.  He then went on to help found All Hail The Yeti but no longer plays with that band.

Red Tide Rising will be in Bloomington, Illinois today, August 2nd and Minneapolis, Minnesota tomorrow, August 3rd.  The band’s current tour schedule is noted in full below.  Its tour is in support of its new EP Voices.
