SINGLE ARTWORK DESIGNED BY: JOHN BATTERSBY (STREETLIGHT MEDIA)
The explosive new track, Dirty City Problem is the first single to drop off Red Tape Riot’s second album. Their new album is due for release on the 14th of November this year. The song is a socio-political commentary with a powerful heartfelt melody and strong party groove.
“Dirty City Problem is a song that means a lot to the band as it reflects our beliefs about the current state of the world around us in a very real and honest way. We hope it can in some small way inspire more belief in possible change. It is also the first song we wrote as the new layout of RTR”, says John Battersby.
Dirty City Problem was mixed and produced in Berlin by Shai Caleb, with Mastering from Elvis Ellington. Tracking and pre-production by Teejay Terblanche at CoffeeStainedVinyl.
So far, 2015 has seen Red Tape Riot touring Joburg and Pretoria and The East Coast and plans are in the pipeline for them to embark on an epic UK and Germany tour next year.
