Deep Red was formed in 1996 by Martha A. Hoffmann also of Distorted Reality and DC Astro of Element 104. Shortly after, their song “Holy You” would be included in Cleopatra Records’ “The Goth Box”, and this paved the way to appearances in a slew of other compilations in the US and abroad (including in our very own “Venussa XX” compilation which we released in 2001 via Triton Records).

The band in the end got signed to Project Pitchfork’s label and embarked on a European tour with them. The band released 3 albums in total plus 1 EP.

And behold, we now got the news that the legendary dark electronic band Deep Red has announced its comeback. It’s been a whopping 20 years since the band’s last release, “Chimera”, was released. The duo has now returned with the single “Battle Lines”, a collaboration with the band Element 104.

The band is currently working on a slew of new material to be released later this year. “Battle Lines” is available on Spotify and all major digital platforms including Bandcamp.

Here’s the video for “Battle Lines”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
