Janus Set Debut
Red Right Return Is a collection of ten seamlessly flowing tracks that showcase the band's ability to bring the Rock world an intelligent fresh sound. Janus' debut harkens back to the days when albums were written as a total piece of work, as opposed to a group of single songs. The Chicago natives recorded, produced, created all the themes, digital presence, and artwork on their own. Lyrically, the songs have very strong universal underpinnings to real life experiences. While they tell a particular story, the end result is left open to interpretation and the listener is free to draw their own conclusions.
JANUS uses a broad range of dynamics and instruments not often used in the Rock world (violins, cellos, timpani drums, a full choir, air raid sirens and a glockenspiel) to produce a sound of melodic, ethereal backdrops grounded in aggressive, heavy, rhythms.
JANUS will be on the road non-stop throughout the remainder of 2009, and well into 2010, to promote RED LIGHT RETURN. The first batch of dates includes shows with Sevendust and Chevelle, as well as various radio stations festival appearances. Check them out at any of the following shows:
