Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue gave its fans a treat in October when it revealed one track per day from its upcoming album From The Vanishing Point. Once the entire album was streaming on the 13th, Red Wanting Blue capped off the preview by performing all of From The Vanishing Point live in its entirety in front of a home town crowd of nearly 1000 fans who were already singing along with the unreleased material.

The sneak preview was meant to satisfy the band’s loyal (some would say obsessive) Midwest-based fans who have to wait until January 10th, 2012 for the release of the album via Fanatic Records. From The Vanishing Point is Red Wanting Blue’s first album recorded for a label after many independent, self-released albums and years of touring that have solidified the band’s reputation as one of the best live acts in the country.

Red Wanting Blue will return to NYC for the first since June for a headlining show at Rockwood Music Hall on Tuesday November 8th.  As word about the band’s powerful and passionate live show has spread, Red Wanting Blue’s tour schedule has become busier.  Dates opening for Carbon Leaf at World Cafe Live in Philly (12/3), a headlining show at Cleveland’s House of Blues (2/4) and a five–day stint aboard The Rock Boat sailing to Cozumel, Mexico (3/1-3/5) have just been announced in addition to continued visits to the band’s rust belt strongholds.

From The Vanishing Point is the second album that Red Wanting Blue has recorded with Grammy®-nominated producer Jamie Candiloro, whose previous work includes engineering several REM records and producing the bulk of the Ryan Adams catalog.
