As the Rouge's star continues to rise, the fellas are steadily writing new material, including this track, "Prodigal," taken from one of its recent sessions. With the ink barely dry on the act's latest effort, Heat and Light, which was just released this past May, the outfit is wisely building on the momentum generated this past summer, a season that included a series of shows on the West Coast that culminated with breakthrough gig at Film on the Rocks. After a a recent well received show at the Gothic supporting the Heyday, the Rouge is gearing up for an upcoming headlining gig of its own at the Marquis in November with the Still City, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake and Churchill. Keep your eye on these guys. We sense some big things on the horizon.
