The band has been promoting their first CD titled “Katharsis” which was recorded at Eddie Grant’s Blue Wave Studio in Barbados, and mixed and mastered at Metal Works Studios in Canada by Eric Ratz and Scott Lake who have worked with international artistes such as Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Three Days Grace, and Billy Talent.
The CD contains 14 tracks ranging from rock/alternative and intimate acoustic, to rock ballads and reggae fusions.
“Katharsis” has been attracting attention both locally and internationally, and the band is steadily building their brand and fan base.
Threads of Scarlet's first release "Issues" has become the most requested song ever on Mix 96.9 FM, the leading rock/alternative station in Barbados. The group subsequently released three singles, "The Way Out", "Slow Down", and "Ruby Red Roses", all with accompanying videos.
TOS was very well received at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas and enjoyed a successful series of performances in New York and Connecticut during September and October, 2011.
The band was selected to showcase at The Canadian Music Festival in Toronto, Canada in March 2012. and opened for Puddle of Mudd, Fuel and Saliva at the Mudfest Concert in Eagle River, Wisconsin, May 19th 2012.
The group also opened for Sum 41 at select venues on the East Coast leg of their tour in November 2012, and hosted and headlined the inaugural "Rock The Rock" concert in Barbados the same month.
Now, fresh off the trails from a well-received Montauk Music Festival, they are preparing to record a new single with the help and guidance of producer Kiyanu Kim and manager Yuji Watanabe of 3P Music Productions, Inc.
Our music is full of energy and honesty with a unique Barbadian flare and a New York edge. Our songs are written from personal experiences, and carry an element of tempered aggression that gives us a unique sound. Having two lead singers adds an incredible dimension, and allows us to widen our fan demographic.
