Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue played an intense, sold-out show to their ever-growing league of faithful fans at NYC’s Mercury Lounge last Thursday. Anticipation is running high for the band’s These Magnificent Miles album hitting stores on July 27th, 2010. An album trailer (more like a mini-documentary) was recently completed and can be viewed below:

Red Wanting Blue has been touring the heart of America for over a decade. The band, led by Scott Terry and voiced by his gifted baritone, has self-released several records in that time and built a loyal following for its version of roots rock. Throughout, Red Wanting Blue fielded label offers from indies and majors alike, but never found a suitable partner until now.

Fanatic Records has fallen in love with the band’s These Magnificent Miles album and will give it a national release on July 27th, 2010. Fanatic will also issue a deluxe double-LP edition of These Magnificent Miles with full-color LP sleeves in a gatefold jacket. Red Wanting Blue will begin to expand its touring to new markets this summer to support the album.

Produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson, REM) in Columbus and mixed in Los Angeles, These Magnificent Miles captures the feel and sound of Red Wanting Blue live — an addictive show that has earned the band a loyal following which stomps, cheers and sings along. It’s an album for all of the musicians who live life on the road and lifts the veil on what it means to be an underdog in a touring rock band.

Red Wanting Blue’s relatable story is now the subject of a feature-length documentary being produced by Davenport Theatrical (Avenue Q, Will Ferrell’s You’re Welcome America, Altar Boyz) that draws its focus on the band’s tireless stamina and dedication. “There is a romance to this circus life,” Terry says. “With a little luck, and a lot of support from the greatest fans a band could have, we hope to ride this open road like a hammer into history.”
