RedHook - Mar 22 - The Brightside

Since Sydney's RedHook officially spawned in 2018, the rise of the self-styled heavy pop rock mutants has been described as nothing short of meteoric.

Booked on the lineup for Download UK and Sydney's inaugural Good Things Festival off the strength of their first two singles alone, the independent band has enjoyed a whirlwind 9 months, signing on with the Hen House Management (worldwide), inking booking deals with New World Artists (AUS) and Paradigm (UK/EU), winning the triple J Unearthed competition to open Download Festival Australia's first ever Sydney event, completing their debut international tour (supporting rock titans Three Days Grace) and Download UK festival debut, racking up millions of streams across YouTube and Spotify, scoring triple J Unearthed feature artist status, Kerrang! Radio feature artist status and seeing their last two singles added to full rotation on triple J.

They also undertook four complete Australian tours, supporting a diverse array of headline acts including pop rock rising stars The Faim, Aussie scene heavyweights Hands Like Houses and US metal legends Sevendust before selling out the Melbourne and Sydney legs of their debut headline tour in September of 2019.

Featuring the core songwriting duo of Emmy Mack and Craig Wilkinson, two strangers from opposite ends of regional NSW whose paths collided after moving to Sydney in 2017 and bonding over the role that music has played in both of their lives, RedHook team with young gun drummer Alex Powys to create unique and emotional alternative music that fuses multiple genres including rock, rap, metalcore, pop and electronica, with lyrics that aim to inspire listeners to keep fighting against the forces of darkness - both in the real world and inside their own heads.
