Ok, so here’s the thing; for almost 2 months now RED has been releasing teasers of their latest project on their official Facebook page (yeah, yeah… I know most artists do that), but what we didn’t know was the little surprise they had in store for us.
On November 28th, the band has made an official announcement of their latest album Of Beauty & Rage AND their 1st graphic novel based on it and some music videos!!!
Now, we’ve all heard of how some artists can tell a story through a series of songs (Eg: Apocalyptica’s trilogy: ‘Not strong enough’, ‘End of Me’ and ‘Broken Pieces’ from their album 7th Symphony), but it’s not every day you hear one of your favourite bands releasing a graphic novel. Well, to be honest for me, not since Within Temptation’s “Unforgiving” series (Which I am DYING to get my hands on!) So get ready and set the date, as both album and novel are set to be released on February 24th, 2015.
To quench that thirst of excitement a little bit, here’s a sneak peek of their album/novel cover… enjoy!
