Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell have kept busy in the studio and on the road. They released their third full-length In Time To Voices in July of 2012 via V2 / Cooperative Music, and supported it with a fall US tour. Following the tour, the band got together with John Congelton (The Roots, Explosions In The Sky, The Walkmen) to record the Water EP which came out this past February via V2 / Cooperative Music. V2 / Cooperative Music also re-released the first two records Blood Red Shoes records, Box of Secrets & Fire Like This, earlier this year.

Blood Red Shoes are known for transferring their studio efforts into loud, energetic live shows. The new video for "Red River", from Water perfectly captures this energy. The video contains live and on-the-road footage of the band's recent tour in Russia, which saw the band encounter the full force of the Russian Customs officers, travel through snow after shows, and spark mosh pits in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

Expect the same level of excitement from the restless outfit this time around. "We planned to spend most of 2013 working on new material after touring like motherfuckers last year," says drummer/vocalist Steven Ansell. "But we realized that we'd go insane if we stayed in one place too long. Plus the last North American tour we did was a blast and kind of inspired us with new songs anyway. So we're heading back over for a few weeks again, hitting some familiar places and breaking some new ground too. It'll be cool to play the songs off our new EP because some of them were actually inspired by our time on the road in North America in late 2012."
