“The aforementioned lead guitar is actually amazing. If you are a person who likes shredding, I highly recommend this album. Seriously, the solos are fucking cool! […] the vocalist is fantastic. Just saying.” – Mind The Music T.O. (2015)
“Thematically, these guys have also aced their game. They know how to blend music and presentation to a tee, almost developing a narrative around what they do. When it all comes together, it makes for a brilliant experience. All of this is evinced in full on the Red Skies debut album “Iron Sun”. […] This album isn’t merely music – it’s a venture for the ears worth taking.” – The Circle Pit (2015)
“[…] I have been waiting for something like this to come out for a while now. […] All nine songs are original and deserve a listen. Personally, [I think] other metalcore bands should listen to this and take notes.” – Montreal Rampage (2015)

The end of a time and the beginnings of something greater; that is what Red Skies stands for and what its name means to the band members that make up its sound.
From humble beginnings in 2012, the group came together to create a musical style of their own with nothing but their creativity to limit them. Fast, catchy and heavy, their E.P. Identitas (2013) stands as a testament to their reputation as a staple of the Montreal music scene. In the short amount of time the band has been around, they already had the chance to share the stage with many established acts, including: Architects, Enter Shikari, The Acacia Strain, Stray From the Path, Volumes, Being as an Ocean, My Ticket Home, Amity Affliction, For the Fallen Dreams, Obey the Brave, Heartist, Smash Hit Combo, Your Memorial, The Plot in You, The Contortionist, Counterparts, Fit For An Autopsy, Intervals and many more.
In 2014, their hard work was recognized by a large panel of judges coming from all corners of the music industry (Evenko, Extensive Enterprises, The Gazette, Asher Media Relations, etc.) at the “En Route Vers Heavy MTL” contest, during which the band made it all the way to the finals at Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre, under overwhelming participation from the crowd and positive feedback from the judges.
Red Skies continues to push the limits of their identity and sound, striving to create a place for their art and a name for themselves. Their debut record “Iron Sun” (10/13/15) has already received many critical acclaims and keeps doing so as the band spreads their fresh new sound to the masses.
