MIDNIGHT RΞD, America’s Boy Band, is thrilled to announce their upcoming tour schedule, which includes the rescheduled MTV “Artist to Watch” Tour with Austin Mahone as well as shows starting in April with The Wanted.

“We love performing and sharing our music with the fans. We are so excited to be going out on tour next month with Austin Mahone,” says Colton Rudloff. “We recently did some shows with The Wanted and are looking forward to getting back out on the road with them in April,” adds Thomas Augusto.

2101 Records/Capitol Records released the self-titled EP MIDNIGHT RED, produced by RedOne, in December. The boys debut single, “Take Me Home,” drew attention to Midnight Red as the featured nationwide commercial for Coca Cola/iHeart Radio. The feel-good video for “Take Me Home,” has calculated over 3 million views on YouTube and brings a good time with friends on a lake to life while showing off dance moves that are among the best in today’s highly competitive world of pop music.

While some boy bands are here today and gone tomorrow, Joey, Thomas, Eric, Colton, and Anthony form the new group of exciting performers that is here to stay!

United by their intensely pure talent and passion for music of all kinds, Midnight Red’s members hail from all over the U.S. As the second signing to the partnership between Grammy Award-winning producer/songwriter RedOne’s 2101 Records and Capitol Music Group, Midnight Red is now teaming up with RedOne (Lady Gaga, U2, J.Lo, Pitbull) to create a debut EP that showcases their powerhouse vocals and harnesses the combustible energy of their live show.

Near-lifelong singers and dancers hailing from wildly different backgrounds, Midnight Red saw its inception when Anthony and Eric met through their mutual vocal coach. A star dancer for Monsters of HipHop, Anthony had tried out as a backup dancer for Janet Jackson at age 12, then made it to the final round of auditions only to find he was too young to go on tour. After Anthony connected with Eric (through a vocal coach), the two reached out to Thomas, who soon relocated to L.A. from his rural Texas hometown to join the group. A self-described music obsessive “raised by MTV,” Thomas devoted his high school years to scouting out any opportunity to sing onstage, and had crossed paths with Eric through a singing competition when he was 15. Next, the group tracked down Colton after stumbling across a YouTube video of the aspiring singer/school-chorus star covering Jesse McCartney’s “Leavin.’” To round out the lineup, Midnight Red’s then-manager tapped Joey, another aspiring singer who was attending California State University, Northridge (and whose singer/songwriter father, Joey Diggs Sr., had recorded vocals with the likes of Smokey Robinson, Whitney Houston, and Rod Stewart).
