Under the current political and economic climate, the post-industrial regions of the Midwest are the battleground of progress and regress. Life in St Louis, a metropolitan area existing in two greatly differing states, is a rollercoaster ride of concurrent tragedy and victory. It is constant hustle, endless struggle, and uphill standoffs between classes, while simultaneously being a celebration of diversity, intersectional coalition-building, and a parade of underdog triumphs. RedBait naturally reflects this atmosphere in sound and action.
Major influences include Tragedy, Hope Conspiracy, Dystopia, Thrice, and Nausea. RedBait features ex-members of Seven Generations, Hellfire Trigger, Resolve, Shallow Breath, and Slaughterchops.
Their debut on New Age, "Cages" arrived summer 2019.
