Drown in Colour

Drown In Colour, released July 10, 2009, is the second album from Red Riders. It was released under the Ivy League Records label. The album was produced by Woody Annison (Pound System, Rocket Science). It was recorded at Megaphon Studios, Petersham, Sydney and mixed at Studio One in Collingwood, Melbourne. The entire recording, mixing and mastering process was completed over the course of four weeks in early 2009. It is the first Red Riders release featuring new guitarist Brad Heald, replacing Adrian Deutsch who embarked on a solo career after touring to support Replica Replica.

The album was released on iTunes Australia with an album-only bonus track entitled 'Higher'.


First single

The first single released from the album was 'You've Got A Lot Of Nerve'. This was released as a download-only single on 1 May 2009, and features the b-side 'I Will Never'. The accompanying stop-motion video clip was directed by Chris Hopkins.

Second single

The second single released from the album was 'Ordinary'. The accompanying video was produced by Melbourne based agency Moop Jaw. It was directed by Ryan Fraser and produced by Rhett Wade-Ferrell. Warran Wright was responsible for art direction.

Demo Tape

Initial copies of the album sold at selected music stores (Red Eye in Sydney, Fish Records in Newtown or Leichhardt, Missing Link in Melbourne, Rockinghorse in Brisbane, Planet in Perth, Krypton in Adelaide, Big Star in Adelaide and JB Hi-Fi online) came with a bonus demo tape entitled 'Drown In Colour - Demos (2007–2009)'. The tape contained demo versions of 8 album tracks and 3 non-album tracks ('This Song Is A Gun', 'The Fool!' and 'The Ballad Of Nick Carraway'). The tape contains a copy of a handwritten note by lead singer Alex Grigg on 22 May 2009, which reads

Hey there, thanks heaps for pre-ordering our new record. Here's some demo recordings of a bunch of the tracks that made the cut (and a few also rans that didn't. The sound quality's kind of crummy, but then again so is most of the playing. Anyway, hope you like 'em! Viva la cassette!

Commercial Use

The album's opening track, 'Tomorrow/Today', was recently used on the end credits of popular Australian drama Home and Away on 22 July 2009. 'Ordinary' was used in an ABC advertising campaign between late July and early September 2009.
