After a change in line-up last year, R.C. Sullivan has been working on new songs in the last couple of months. With a new singer, the band has slightly struck out in a new direction. While the screams may have died down, the message R.C. Sullivan tries to get across hits home even harder. And is heard clearer and louder than before on their explosive new EP, “Caution”.
“Caution” is available on one sided 12” vinyl or digitally. Vinyl copies can be ordered through the band’s website or at live shows.
The band’s name is a reference to US Park Ranger Roy Cleveland Sullivan. He survived getting struckby lightning seven times. Despite his seeming immortality, an unrequited love got the better of him; hecommitted suicide at age 71.
This contrast between humanity’s durability against unstoppable forces one hand, and its frailty on the other, inspires the band. Unbiased, rather in search of dialogue, they try to illuminate different aspects of life. This is accompanied by melodic riffs, vehement vocals and pounding rhythms.The band originated in 2012 and consists of Jared (vocals), Lennart (guitar), Edo (guitar), Joris (drums) and Jan Jaap (bass).
