Battle Red / Bio

Craigslist. We all met on Craigslist. Justin Hager and Brian Smith started writing music in March 2012 after meeting from a musicians looking ad Justin posted on craigslist. Owing to an over 20 year age difference and literally growing up in different generations of rock music they found that the mutual creation was unique for the Quad Cities area. Bill McManamon joined the band on Bass in October 2012 and added what was to be the final piece in the soundscape of Battle Red. They played their first show in March 2013 and finished the year playing shows at least twice a month. Currently recording their first full length album, they are expecting a release in late spring.
