The Red Paintings
Trash McSweeney sees colour in music. Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure, Trash set out to share with the world a lifetime's worth of ideas about what he has seen and felt. By taking to his guitar, piano, and notebook, The Red Paintings were born.
The Red Paintings combine performance art and music in a spectacular live show. Each show features unique visual projections along with human body and canvas painters who join them on stage to create artworks that reflect their music and energy.
Painters are sourced for the band’s shows all over the world, with the aim of finding talented but struggling artists and giving them a platform to showcase their art. Submissions and displays are kept up to date on the band’s artist page here
Their sound evokes child-like lullabies of the future, to biting, alternative rock numbers. They are sometimes compared to multi-faceted acts like Radiohead, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Arcade Fire and their appeal reaches across baroque-pop steam-punks, metal-heads, indie-rock, prog and folk.
The band have played festivals such as Big Day Out, Great Escape and toured internationally with acts including art-rockers Dresden Dolls, neo-punks Mindless Self Indulgence, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and post-rockers Mogwai. Their album ‘The Revolution Is Never Coming’ is due for international release in October 2013.
5 years in the making, this epic album was recorded and mixed with the late Bryan Carlstrom (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie) in world class studios around the globe. The album includes a 35 piece orchestra, a 22 piece choir, harp players, French horns, theremin and more. The band raised donations from fans all over the world to realise their vision and have already received critical acclaim for the record’s unique and ambitious scope.
‘There is nothing to fault in this extraordinary debut and it will no doubt bring further international acclaim to the Australian band. 10/10.’ – Tone Deaf
‘Like a thrilling manic descent on a violent helter-skelter ride its grandiose absinthe-soaked delirium never wavers. 4/5.’ – Rolling Stone
‘The Red Paintings and their debut album The Revolution Is Never Coming is phenomenal. There is no other word to describe the sheer majestic, dynamic, out of this world orchestral sound and nature of this Brisbane quintet.’ –
Trash Mcsweeney has been dropping hints over the past year or more about being the first act to launch their album into space across 13 different countries across the world.
''I'm going to send 'The Revolution Is Never Coming' to space. I mean why not? I don't want to be tied down to one planet''.

Bryan Carlstrom - Producer, Engineer (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie):
“In my entire 30 year career I’ve not mixed such a diverse, colourful and emotionally dynamic album such as this, it’s like a 21st century War of the Worlds.”
Trash McSweeney - The Red Paintings:
‘’People create an album around a life, I created a life around an album.’’
