Red Sun Rising to Join Rock Powerhouse Foreigner at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip

Another chart-topping hard rock band has been added to the heart-pounding lineup of the Best Party Anywhere®.

Sturgis, SD – The opening weekend of the “Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling®” just added another dynamic chart-topping band, hard rockers Red Sun Rising. The band will open for one of the biggest rock powerhouses on the planet, Foreigner, on the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Saturday, Aug. 4.
“Red Sun Rising is another marvelous piece locked into this explosive 2018 lineup,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “Their emotional anthems and superb guitar work make them a great lead-in for one of the biggest classic rock bands of all time, Foreigner.”

Red Sun Rising has topped Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart twice with two no. 1 hits, “The Otherside” and “Emotionless,” and the top ten hits “Amnesia” and “Deathwish.” Thanks in part to their augmented lineup, their new album “Thread,” a follow-up to “Polyester Zeal,” bottles up the bands live energy and gives rise to a raw and volatile sound. The band’s gripping three-part harmonies infuse songs like “Stealing Life” with a live energy backed by punishing riffs.
