      Candlelight Red

      Candlelight Red is the culmination of two central PA bands with a long history merged into one. Bassist, Adam Zimmer, and Drummer, Josh Hetrick, was the rhythm section in the State College based band "Stept On". Stept On pounded the PA music scene in the early 2000's. They made the local airwaves with two exciting EP's and got their start opening for bands like "Halestorm" and "Breaking Benjamin."

      After the band disbanded 2006, Andam Zimmer and Josh Hetrick decided to join forces with guitarist Jeremy Edge. Edge had recorded 4 cds with the band "Backstreet Law." (That later became "Til December".) They had sold 10,000 CD's independently, opened for many national acts, and made appearances on the Jaegermeister Music Tour. After all of that, Til December decided to disband as well. Out of the ashes came Candlelight Red.

      The band found Ryan Hoke to fill in on vocals. Ryan had played in the bands "Hyphema" and "Slant 6", who opened for acts like "Hatebreed" and "Clutch". Things clicked immediately and the band began writing songs together. Since the summer of 2008, Candlelight Red has been introducing their sound to clubs all over central PA, NY and Ohio. They landed a sponsorship deal with Jaegermeister and was chosen to open for "Korn" on the Jagertour! They also received endorsements for SIT Strings, Spector Basses and Saluda Cymbals. Already garnering many rave reviews and amassing a street team and fan club, Candlelight Red has released a new EP and the band is planning to record more tracks this summer!
