Red Sun Rising have revealed the power of social media persuaded the band to reignite their love affair with European audiences.

The Ohio rockers have lined up a slew of high profile festival dates in June and will open up for Alter Bridge at select arena shows.

The global release of Red Sun Rising’s debut Polyester Zeal led to the band smashing US Active Rock radio records and sealing gigs across the globe.

“Ever since we left Europe we wanted to go back,” said the band. “The fans were incredible and they have been showing their support via social media.

“We are excited to continue to grow our relationship with more of them with each visit. It’s very exciting to play these huge festivals for the first time!”

In advance of their June dates, Red Sun Rising have released a cover version of Alanis Morrissette’s Uninvited.  Watch the video here
