Redbait introduce their brand new track, “Forever Ends Now,” out on their new record, Cages, released soon via New Age Records.

Redbait did not come from a music scene, but instead from the ranks of St. Louis activists and organizers. The common musical influences from punk, metal, and hardcore may be front and center, but it is at the combined consciousness of community building, advocacy, and workers’ rights that one will find the heart of the group.

“Under the current political and economic climate, the post-industrial regions of the Midwest are the battleground of progress and regress,” the band says. 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.”

Sure, RedBait can play your show, but they can also negotiate a union contract, set up a 501c3, introduce you to elected officials, cook for 100 people under budget, and change your mind. RedBait stands with workers, animals, and the environment.
