The Skinny: Candlelight Red is ready to reclaim their place in the Active Rock community with the release of their highly anticipated second album, Reclamation, which is due out June 4 on Imagen Records. The new album’s first single, “Feel The Same,” will be released to radio May 14 but premiered online today – check it out via the YouTube player just below.

Reclamation is the follow-up to their 2011 debut album, The Wreckage, which spawned the Active Rock hit, “Closer.” Their Demons EP, released in 2012, featured the Top 30 Active Rock single, “Demons.” The new album is a summation of the band’s mixture of hard hitting riffs mixed with melodic songs and heartfelt lyrical content. Sevendust drummer and newly-appointed Imagen Records Vice President of A&R Morgan Rose was brought in to produce Demons and the chemistry was evident immediately. Four months later, they teamed up again at The Architekt Studios in Butler, NJ to write and record the new album with the help of mixer/engineer Mike Ferretti.

As KISS’ Gene Simmons said of Candlelight Red, “Once upon a time, someone gave KISS a chance. We have always believed in giving back. From giving our fans the Hottest Show on Earth to giving new talent a shot. Congratulations to Candlelight Red on being selected by KISS and winning the Guitar Center’s 2010 ‘Onstage Contest.’ Well deserved.”
