High concept stuff!
What do you get when you cross the drumming power of Ash, the silky bass skills of Feeder and, erm, comic books? The Red The White and The Blue, apparently. The brainchild of former Ivyrise man Paul Cronin, The Red The White and The Blue is a full-on multimedia thrill ride.
With Ash's Rick McMurray on drums, Feeder's Taka Hirose on bass, Cronin on guitars and Ed Loades taking up vocal duties, TRTWATB will release ‘Crisis!’ and ‘Flying With You’, the first two tracks and corresponding issues from their comic series The Balloonist on November 1.
The Balloonist follows a love triangle between two feuding brothers and a girl that turns deadly; but death is only the beginning of the story. The music/comic combination will be released on the first day of each month with the full concept album and graphic novel available in April.
