Speaking on Red Handed Denial‘s new album announcement and their latest single, vocalist and YouTube sensation, Lauren Babic shares:
“We are so excited to share “Cloud 9” with you, the second single off our new album, I’d Rather Be Asleep. “Cloud 9″ is reminiscent of the classic shreddy RHD sound that our fans are more used to, but it’s a testament to how versatile our upcoming album is. We’ve been waiting so long to spill the beans about the album details and it feels so good to finally tell everyone. It’s a very special album and we can’t wait for you to hear the rest on June 3rd!”
|“Cloud 9” follows previous single, “Father Said” which was released in January. To date, the track has clocked up nearly 500k cross-platform streams and was included on major editorial streaming playlists including All New Metal on Spotify and Breaking Hard Rock, Breaking Metal and New In Rock on Apple Music.|
