The great year after releasing our second L.P. “Soft Target” on December 1, 2017 continues, as Red Cities received acclaim for “Best Albums of 2017” by The Big Takeover Magazine and an excellent review in The Lincoln Journal Star. We were featured on Genya Ravan’s Sirius XM show “Goldie’s Garage,” on WKDU Philadelphia, on WFMU Jersey City, and local stations KZUM and KRNU among others.
Big Takeover said of Soft Target: “The five-year-old foursome’s even better, belated follow-up is a feast (and fest!) for such hard n’ raw right-hand riffing – I’ll add Fred Sonic Smith and Wayne Kramer – only Red Cities are like the Aussies that seized that Detroit/Cleveland template and set it on fire – it’s hot, hot, hot!”
We’re honored to be finalists for “Best Punk” band of the year by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards, and by our fans for voting for us! It’s been a great year and thanks for all the support from our friends and fans.
