The amazing U.K. band Red Box have returned to the music scene after many years and have just released their new cd 'Plenty' on Cherry Red Records. You may remember them from their previous albums "The Circle & The Square" - 1985 (with the singles 'Lean On Me (ah-li-ayo) and 'For America') and "Motive" - 1990. The Circle & The Square was reissued last year by Cherry Red Pop after being out of print on cd for many many years.

Listening to the samples of the 14 tracks they sound great, more acoustic than you might expect with 'Say What's In Your Head' sounding like a possible single in the future ('Hurricane / Brighter Blue' is the first double-single from the project).

Red Box lead vocalist and songwriter Simon Toulson-Clarke has been working on this release for a while and the band has been performing some low key gigs in the U.K. in recent months. The band hope to put on a CD release gig/party in London in late October/early November.

You can download 'Plenty' from iTunes U.K. and Amazon U.K.. There is a limited edition version of the physical cd that contains 6 bonus tracks of new studio material and it can be ordered from Amazon U.K. along with the regular edition CD. A very small number of signed limited edition cds can be ordered from the Cherry Red website.
