Bio Red Water Tragedy is a four piece rock/metal band from based out of Akron/Kent. Formed by initially by former Subtle End singer/guitarist Paul Galloway and drummer Tory Page in 2005. The band broke up shortly there after. Three years later Galloway and Page reconciled and decided to finish what was started. In their search for a bassist, long time friend and guitarist Shaun Stiwald joined the RWT as a bassist. After some time Shaun decided to move to guitar and bassist Dave Tinlin (of Subtle End and Hate Theory) joined the group and solidified the line up. After a layoff at the end of 2013 RWT want to head in a different direction and starting working with drummer Matt Lyons (formerly of Ashes of the Damned). Things fell together quickly as they started rewriting songs and writing brand new material. shortly after matt's arrival, a new guitarist, Broc Bohaychyk joined up on guitar duties. They are currently playing shows all over North East Ohio and recording some new material. Check our list of shows for a date near you. Keep it metal \m/
