Oh shit it’s been three long fucking years, but it’s that time again to REDSKY! FUCK YEAH! So, let’s go through the check list:

1. Be completely off the grid for three years while writing new music…check.

2. Finish recording music at Signaturetone Recording…check.

3. Trust music to Adam Tucker for mixing/mastering…check.

4. Get new merch…check.

5. Get new stage props for live show…check.

6. Masterbate…chhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeck.

I’m thrilled to have completed this project. In total, I wrote an entire screenplay and recorded nearly 27 songs. Only 9 made final cut and into the studio for the album. The drums were recorded by Adam Tucker at SignatureTone Recording with none other than Peter Clarke (Bill Pulmonary Embolism, ex-Iron Thrones, Liar in Wait). I decided that it was time to do real drums because I’m sick and tired of all the perfect and precise drumming that is so prevalent in metal music. I wanted something realistic that represented the skills of a renown professional in the area. I think Pete did a great job and the quality and difference is night and day. We will be performing limited shows throughout the region on this cycle. Plan to hear more of that later on…Our current lineup is as follows:

Chuck Wagner – Guitars/Vocals

Peter Clarke – Drums/Percussion

Micah Devereux – Lead Guitar

TBD – Bass


Insidious Divine will be available worldwide digitally on 9.9.14 at

The Insidious Divine

Posted in Uncategorized on November 9, 2011 by REDSKY

Minneapolis, MN

Official Press Release – November 9, 2011

Heavy Metal Progressive Rock band REDSKY have named “The Insidious Divine” as the follow-up release to their debut album, “The Circle of Blood.” Inspired by Pink Floyd’s – The Wall, “The Insidious Divine” is a combination of film and progressive music that exist as two separate entities while being linked through the visuals of film and the progressive cadence of the music.

“Creatively speaking, this is the most ambitious project that I have ever conceived. I have always loved Pink Floyd’s film version of The Wall. It is such a fascinating concept that gripped me when I first saw it as a 15 year old teenager. It blurred the lines between two mediums of established entertainment flawlessly. The concept of the “The Insidious Divine” is remarkable and once we found the right tempo, the musical themes and tones were immediately identified and the music practically wrote itself. At this point, it’s all a matter of demoing the key production elements and matching them to what we interpret from the script,” says REDSKY frontman, Chuck Wagner.

REDSKY plans on entering SignatureTone Recording Studios in Spring 2012. Film production is slated to begin in August 2012 and last through late-Winter 2013. Film crew announcements will be made Spring 2012.

Band News, Gigs, and More Cool Stuff

Posted in 2011, Band, Live, Metal, Minneapolis, Music, New REDSKY Album, REDSKY on June 2, 2011 by REDSKY

So we played a pretty kick ass show at The Cabooze May 28th. It was awesome to see so many new faces and witness an actual moshpit. It was also Brian Kirkner’s last show with the band. He found his dream job building guitars for a major guitar manufacturer in California. We wish him all the best in his new found career and hope that he enjoys living life in California. We offered to move with him…and stay in California because, let’s face it, Minnesota has some pretty shitty weather, but alas the whole “we have roots here…blahblahblah.” It’s probably for the best, but we (roadies included) will all miss the fuck outta him. As awesome as Kirkner is on guitar, he is 100 TIMES more awesome to hang with…and that’s what we’re really going to miss the most.

Ok. So that brings us to the second part of this thing…who’s going to play lead guitar for REDSKY? Well, we have put out the feelers to many of our friends that play in other bands, and I can tell you we found someone so incredibly exceptional that we know you will be pleased. So without further adieu REDSKY would like to welcome Matt Hodsdon to the band. Matt has amazing chops and has played with some amazing bands like DAWN OF VALOR, EPICUREAN, and his own project CHAOS FRAME. I am a HUGE fan of Matt’s work with CHAOS FRAME and I feel that he brings an energy and sound all his own to the REDSKY material. If you haven’t already, please give his work on Chaos Frame a listen. You will not regret it.

That brings me to gigs…we have a lot of them coming up and if Danny Z can book us a date in or around Chicago in August then we will be covering the entire northern midwest region. Here’s what we have so far:

Seriously…get your asses out there. We are playing with some of our favorite local bands like IRON THRONES, DON’T WORRY I’M A DOCTOR, UNDER EDEN, and SAMSAHRA.

More cool stuff…well…we’re riding out our summer shows and then heading to the studio to start recording our next album. I’m pretty stoked about it and SO SHOULD YOU!!! We will be working with our friends at SignatureTone Recording again. So, you know it’s going to be an analog Surly fueled party. Also, we finally have our CD in physical DigiPak format. BUY IT NOW! And…keep checking the website for videos and other bits of news. We’ll be updating it more frequently in the coming weeks.

Thanks for digging on REDSKY! See you out on the road!

Minneapolis, MN – USA – April 12, 2011

Twin Cities based metal band REDSKY recently inked a publishing and licensing deal with Seattle, WA based AUDIOSOCKET for their 11 track self-produced debut album The Circle of Blood. AUDIOSOCKET is a boutique music licensing agency, representing more than 1,800 emerging bands, composers, and record labels from around the world. REDSKY founding member, Chuck Wagner, hopes that the deal will help the band gain additional exposure to new listeners through video games, movies, and television spots. “Licensing and publishing heavy or extreme music is a very competitive business and AUDIOSOCKET has emerged with a proven track record of finding high-quality music for their clients. I’m very excited about this endeavor as it will enable us to further circumvent the outdated record label structure yet still generate revenue,” Wagner said.

AUDIOSOCKET has helped license music to clients like Toyota, Warner Brothers, Universal, MTV, and ABC as well as had their music featured in television shows like Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. AUDIOSOCKET Chief Executive Officer Brent McCrossen says, “We’re thrilled to bring REDSKY into the AUDIOSOCKET catalog. These guys are playing at a very high level. They’ve mastered their instruments and are writing genuine songs that represent the best in breed. Our clients will love it and we look forward to getting their music to market.”

The Circle of Blood was released on August 30, 2010. The album was tracked at Full Circle Studios in Corcoran, MN and mixed by Adam Tucker at SignatureTone Recording in Minneapolis, MN. REDSKY is currently performing shows through the end of 2011 and has plans to enter the studio Spring of 2012 to record a follow up to The Circle of Blood.
