Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure eight years ago, Trash McSweeney, the musical architect of The Red Paintings, sees color in sound, a condition known as synesthesia. His musical project has set out to share with the world a lifetime’s worth of ideas about what he has seen and felt.


Known for their visionary stage shows incorporating live art, human canvases, and theatrics, The Red Paintings are a multi-faceted genre-spanning act incorporating everything rock from alternative to punk to industrial. Often receiving comparisons to acts such as Radiohead, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Arcade Fire, The Red Paintings have shared stages touring with the Dresden Dolls, Mindless Self Indulgence, Saul Williams, The Posies, Mogwai, and …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.

Recently, the band unveiled the first single and music video from the album titled “Wasps”, with mtvU calling it “dark, cinematic and with a dynamic sound similar in spirit to NIN and 30 Seconds To Mars.” View the video for “Wasps” now online at:
