Columbus, Ohio-based band rock band Red Wanting Blue launches its nationwide “Dime-Store Circus” tour in Des Moines, IA tonight at Vaudeville Mews.  By the end of the run in Denver at the Bluebird Theater on December 19th, the band will have been supporting its current album From The Vanishing Point for the better part of two years.  The record, which debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart, is the band’s best-selling album to date, and has helped see the group go from relative obscurity to sold-out shows at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Lincoln Hall in Chicago, and the Bowery Ballroom in NYC.

In that time, Red Wanting Blue also sailed on The Rock Boat cruise for the second time (in the company of Brandi Carlile, NEEDTOBREATHE and Good Old War), made its network television debut on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” appeared on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live,” taped a session for Daytrotter, and received press attention from Rolling Stone, MTV, Paste, and more.  Late last year, Red Wanting Blue recorded a set for NPR’s heralded “Mountain Stage” program, which recently aired nationally and is now streaming via the NPR website.

Band leader Scott Terry recently spent time chatting with touring industry bible Pollstar about the band’s long journey (he founded Red Wanting Blue in the 1990’s while still in college), and dropping some details about the next Red Wanting Blue album. The upcoming, as-yet-untitled record is once again produced by Jamie Candiloro (REM, Ryan Adams) and is tentatively set to arrive in the first half of 2014. Read the in-depth interview here.

In the meantime, Red Wanting Blue will be doing what the band does best.  See below for a complete tour itinerary including dates with fellow Rock Boat-ers Will Hoge and Swear and Shake.  Scott Terry of Red Wanting Blue is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
