RED TAPE PARADE
"leap year of faith"
As some of you might know, RED TAPE PARADE were working on their third full length album when their singer Wauz got diagnosed with cancer in December 2012. After he passed away on April 15th 2013, they decided to publish one of the few complete demo songs they have made, which is also the last song RED TAPE PARADE played live last saturday, May 11, during their 'To Wauz! To Life!' farewell show.
"We will hopefully find the time to go into the studio this summer, complete another song and then release it as a 7". But for now we wanted to share this version with all of you. To Wauz. To Life. We were Red Tape Parade."
"I know some magic works"
Red Tape Parade
Singer Wauz (R.I.P.)
Wauz, singer of Red Tape Parade, lost his fight against the cancer that was diagnosed in December 2012. He was a truly inspring musician and one of the nicest persons I've ever met. My thoughts and deepest condolence are with his family, bandmates and friends. R.I.P., Wauz.
RED TAPE PARADE
are going on hiatus
This sad news reached us today:
"I (Wauz // vocalist RTP) was diagnosed with cancer last week and now I need all my strength to focus on the fight against it. This means the band won´t be active for the next few months. Music has always been the fuel that kept my motor running so this most certainly doesn´t mean that we are done! We will continue to write music for our third full-length. It might just be a while until you hear from us again. But you will. That´s a promise!
Until then: may the force be with you and be excellent to each other!
Wauz, Mullah, Jeff, Flirto, Oise"
We wish him a lot of perseverance, strength and a full recovery!

Red Tape Parade
join hands with LET IT BURN
The new year starts with a great announcement: We have just teamed up with RED TAPE PARADE from southern Germany and thus enlargened our roster with one of the most amazing new hardcore/punk bands these days.
Label owner Chris Zehetleitner about the signing: “We here at LET IT BURN just fell in love with the passionate music this band plays and most of all with their upright ‘we don’t give a fuck’ attitude. In times of ‘clone wars’ within the underground scene, a band like RED TAPE PARADE is exactly what we were looking for!”
Oise Ronsberger-Palmer (bassist) about the origin of the band: “So in 2006 i was pretty done with hardcore in a musical sense. More assholes then you can shake a stick at, more clichees that any self respecting punk could take. Punkrock - once a radical form of music that insprired us to escape our own boring lives and to pick up our instruments - now seemed to split up in several ridicolous sub-genres. Macho-jock-metal, self indulgent emo, ironic post-punk hippness and shitty overproduced corporate pop-punk-wolves-in-punk-sheep- clothes.
But then i recieved a package from Revelation Records that contained cds by Sinking Ships, Shook Ones and - most important - End Of A Year. I realized that i still wasn' t done playing loud, distored music filled with anger and post-teenage angst. A few phone calls later the musical backbone of what was to become RED TAPE PARADE practised for the first time in december 2006. All of us were active in several punk/indie bands like Static84, Driving The Salt, Anything but yours, John Deere or Là Par Force. Spring 2007 we found our singer Wauz (probably the last Lagwagon fan on planet earth) and after only practising once as a complete band we recorded our eight song demo in a few hours in a messy practise space in Regensburg.”
Within a few months the band released their debut demo for free on the internet and got great reactions from both, listeners and press. In order to work on their first full length album, RED TAPE PARADE started talking to labels: “We started to feel them out and we now found some that we think know where we are coming from and what this band is about.” The CD version of the album will be released by LET IT BURN RECORDS, the vinyl version by FIELDS OF HOPE. There’s also going to be a south-east-asian CD pressing done by BASEMENT RECORDS.
Oise Ronsberger about the cooperation: “I know Chris for a long time and the fact that he knows the ‘music business’ from both sides - musician and label owner - makes him so much more reliable as a partner.”
The debut album will be recorded and mixed in late March 2008 with Californian based producer Mike Drohman at out-o-space studios in Goettingen with the help of engineer Tom Spoetter. The release date is scheduled for July 15, 2008.
