The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus in Auckland

Valhalla Touring presents…
US post hardcore heroes THE RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS play New Zealand for the first time this November, armed with their recent album The Awakening and all their hits.

THE RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS was formed in 2003 by brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter. Virgin Records released the bands RIAA platinum debut record Don't You Fake It. The second album Lonely Road followed in 2009. The band became independent in 2010 and albums Am I the Enemy, 4th of July followed before 2018’s The Awakening.

Known for their spirituality, the bands lyrics cover an array of emotions - darkness and the light and struggles and wins. The RJA message is ultimately one of hope and a reminder that, as Ronnie Winter says, "Even on the worst day that you're alive you are still surrounded by so many awesome things that you should be grateful for, if you choose to look at them."
