Bradford musician Dave McGarry is currently rocking his way across the country as the new guitarist for Red Sun Rising — sharing the stage with famed artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rob Zombie as he goes.
McGarry, 29, calls the opportunity, “a dream,” and pays tribute to his friends, family and supporters in the local area for helping him make it a reality.
With their hit song, “The Otherside,” Red Sun Rising is the only artist in 2015 to have a debut single reach number one on the Active/Mainstream Rock Radio chart. Performing songs from their new album, Polyester Zeal, the band recently finished a tour with Godsmack, picking up McGarry just in time for a winter tour and upcoming festivals in the spring.
Released in January, their second single, “Emotionless,” became the #1 rock single on the Billboard charts on April 25.
This comes after their hit song, “The Otherside.” Red Sun Rising was the only artist in 2015 to have a debut single reach number one on the Active/Mainstream Rock Radio chart. The band was also awarded “New Artist of the Year” at the 2016 Radio Contraband Awards soon after the release of “The Otherside.”
McGarry said having the second single also go #1 feels like “a justification of hard work.”
“It motivates us now that we've set up this pride for ourselves. We'll continue to write and record good music and strive for the next goal.”
RED SUN RISING made headlines with its debut full-length album, "Polyester Zeal", and earned its own piece of rock radio history with two back-to-back No. 1 hit singles off a debut album on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart.
