Red Tide Rising released a new single this week.
The hard rock quartet released its cover of the Tears for Fears classic ‘Mad World’ this week. The inspiration for recording came from fans’ reaction to the band’s performance of the song on its summer tour with Sevendust.
When the band finished its run with Sevendust, it entered The Keep Studios with Mike Luce (Drowning Pool) to record the song. Front man Mathew Whiteman said the song has always been a favorite of Red Tide Rising’s members, and added the band’s approach to the song makes this arrangement stand out.
“We covered ‘Mad World’ because it fits into the theme of our music,” Whiteman said. “The choice allowed us to create a dark and melodic spin to the song that showcases our diversity in tonality that is demonstrated from the first note to the last. Besides, the song is a band favorite and we always wanted to pay tribute to it.”
Later this month, the band will head back out on the road for the “Not-So-Silent Night Tour” with Drowning Pool, Gemini Syndrome and 9Electric. The tour launches Nov. 29 in Colorado Springs, CO and runs through Dec. 23 in Dallas, TX. The tour’s schedule is noted below.
