Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Release 'On Becoming Willing'

Mar 22 2018

RIAA Platinum & Gold selling band Red Jumpsuit Apparatus have just released their new single 'On Becoming Willing', taken from the forthcoming new album 'The Awakening', due out this summer. The new track is the follow up to their Top 5 single 'Awakening', see video below.


The RJA story goes back to 2003, actually much further back to when brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter first started playing on acoustic guitars their grandfather gave them, but we’ll skip the ‘they learned to play and formed a bunch of bands that ultimately lead them down the path to glory’ bit and jump in where they were making so much noise that it attracted Virgin Records who snapped them up released the bands debut LP, Dont You Fake It in 2006.

By the end of that year the album was certified Gold in the US, charted the singles Guardian Angel and their best known song, the anti domestic violence focused, Face Down (which is also featured in several video games) and spawned four music videos. A deluxe edition was released in early 2007 featured the track Disconnected which up until then was only available to Australian fans.

Second album Lonely Road followed in 2008 but the collapse and restructure of Virgin Records soon after left the band out on a limb and they became fully independent in early 2010. Being independent they regained full creative control and RJA’s sound and vision able to grow as intended. Since then it’s being done the Red Jumpsuit way, Am I The Enemy was released in 2011 and album number four, 4 in 2014. All charting, all pushing RJA’s message further around the world.

Known for their devout Christian beliefs, the bands spirituality flows through their lyrics which cover a lifetime worth of emotions. The darkness and the light, the struggles and the wins. The RJA message is ultimately one of hope and a reminder that 'Even on the worst day that you're alive you're still surrounded by so many awesome things that you should be grateful for, if you choose to look at them.’ Ronnie Winter

July 4th 2014 the band released their fourth full length record titled "4". This album was produced by Lee Miles (their pre record label producer) & Ronnie Winter, mixed by David Bendeth / Paul Lapinski, and mastered by Paul Lapinski. It features billboard charted singles "Right Direction", "California" and "It was You".
