Take an undeniably high energy show, mix in some very inventive hard driving alt-rock music, and add one of the most unique vocalists on the planet in the form of Dustin Carlson, and you have Ever Stays Red. Formed in 2004, the band made their album debut with I'll Tell The World later that year. Two years later the band made an even bigger impact on Christian music with their self-funded sophmore release These Words Become Us and toured through most of 2007 with Kutless. Ever Stays Red has also performed with many high-profile acts such as Jeremy Camp, Delirious, Thousand Foot Crutch, Hawk Nelson, and Sanctus Real.
On March 11, 2008, Ever Stays Red released their VSR Music debut, On the Brink of It All. Upon its release the band will hit the road and touring throughout the United States and beyond.
