Bad Habits

Bad Habits is a rock/punk/metal band from London, England, with various changes in the lineup since original formation in 1984 by former Leicester band members (with albums Gypsy (United Artists Records 1971; World Wide Records/SPM International, CD reissue 1994) and Brenda and the Rattlesnake (United Artists Records 1972; CD reissue, World Wide Records/SPM International 1994)) who when reformed decided to go in a heavier musical direction from their original formation and therefore used both names interchangeably with the first heavier sounding single for Bad Habits...

Red

There are several artists using this name: Red (USA) (often typeset as R3D) is an American alternative band formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2004. Musically influenced by artists such as Linkin Park, Chevelle, and Muse, Red's style is the rare symphonic rock which blends guitars and strings with passionate vocals. The songs on End of Silence deconstruct struggles that listeners face, while painting a picture of redemption in the midst of brokenness. According to lead vocalist Mike Barnes, Red stands for the blood of Christ and what it represents: passion, pain, but ultimately, redemption.
