The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (RJA) signed to their first record label, Virgin Records in 2005 and released their debut album ‘Don’t You Fake it’ shortly after. They then spent the next two years touring and released their hugely popular hits ‘Face Down’ and Guardian Angel’ that have continued to become timeless classics that a multitude of different age groups continue to enjoy today.
In 2010 RJA left Virgin Records as their label due to a magnitude of issues and decided to go independent. They released a self recorded EP to mark this change, which was produced by front man Ronnie Winter and it was well received by fans old and new from all around the world.
After touring and joining the festival circuit this year, the RJA guys will be releasing their fourth EP, ‘4’ on 4th July. This will be available with all the music they’ve ever recorded to download for free from their website.
We caught up with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus lead singer Ronnie Winter at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival to talk to him about their fans, basketball and the band’s plans for the next 12 months.
