Join The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus who are celebrating the 15th Anniversary release date of their breakthrough debut album “Don’t You Fake It” by hosting a live album track-by-track breakdown and listening party with a Q&A to follow this Friday, July 16th at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST on lead singer Ron Winter’s Twitch channel. The band will be releasing an orchestral edition of the single “Face Down” in late August with two more singles and brand new music videos to accompany the rest of the album’s release (and an orchestral edition also), slated for late this year or early 2022. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus formed in Middleburg, Florida in 2003 and rose to national prominence in 2006 with the release of their hit single, “Face Down.”

Tour Info

The band’s Ron Winter says: “I’m excited to celebrate the 15 Year Anniversary of our debut album “Don’t You Fake It” with our fans. The first few weeks of touring this year have gone incredibly well – so far, so good. I remember feeling that same excitement 15 years ago when we began to record the album with legendary producer David Bendeth. The band were in way over our 20-something collective heads…But in the fantastic hands of Dave and his team – we were able to come through. The band showed up to play like our lives depended on it, literally. When the album came out it was received well by the fans – but not as well by some critics. We toured, and toured, and we toured some more. And then we toured again!

He continues “In doing so we built a community that is vast and passionate in its dedication to this album in particular. People have shared their stories with me continually over the years, and most recently on my Twitch Channel–sometimes even live in the moment.”

“Those stories have helped keep me going emotionally this past year. They tell me they’ve played these songs at their weddings, and at their graduations – special moments in their lives. They’ve played these songs after heartaches and bad break ups, too…Because music is always there for you. In their most vulnerable moments, they turn to these songs as well – while saying good bye at funerals and ceremonies honoring the passing of someone they loved deeply. Do I need to say more? No, just THANK YOU.” 

Over the years, the band has amassed more than 2 billion audio streams of their music, 350 million views of their videos on Youtube and they have over 2 million followers across their social media sites. In 2020 the band released “The Emergency EP.” Rock at Night covered the band’s plans last spring–click HERE to read that story. In August, the band is heading out on an international tour and the dates have been updated HERE.
