RED was formed in 2002 by childhood friends Michael Barnes and twins Anthony and Randy Armstrong. Their style has traditionally been an amalgamation of hard rock and light metal with some classical influences, but shifted to became more alternative after their third album. In reviews, critics have compared RED to bands like Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, and Chevelle. Since 2014, the band's line-up has consisted of the core trio of the Armstrongs and Barnes with touring drummer Dan Johnson.

After they recorded several demos that displayed a style of alternative, hard, and Christian rock music, RED landed a development deal with their longtime producer Rob Graves which led to a record deal with Essential Records in 2004. Their debut albums End of Silence (2006) and Innocence & Instinct (2009) were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album, and spawned the popular singles "Breathe Into Me" and "Death of Me". The band's mainstream popularity grew rapidly and their third album, Until We Have Faces (2011), reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200, followed by Release the Panic (2013), which peaked at No. 7. After Of Beauty and Rage (2015), Red started work on their sixth album, Gone (2017), which released later in the Fall rather than the usual late Winter to early Spring.
