Tulsa based Screaming Red Mutiny is quickly becoming one of the fastest up and coming metal/rock bands in the region. At its inception, Screaming Red Mutiny was comprised of Sprout, lead vocalist, John, guitarist, Nick, bassist, and Tony drummer, and their first appearance would come at Oklahoma’s own Rocklahoma, 2016. Though they barely had enough material to play 20 minutes, let alone the 45 minutes or so to cover a time slot at Rocklahoma, SRM would be invited to play two of the outside stages based on the merits of the members and the bands they all derived from.
SRM is the brainchild of Sprout and John who attempted to collaborate about a year earlier, but due to prior commitments to other bands it seemed to never come to fruition. A year later, Tony stepped away from his current project to join SRM full time. Sprout soon followed suit as well as a new bass player, Mike Starkey. It was apparent SRM was no longer to be an after-thought, but rather a band to be reckoned with. Touring the Midwest began and after some successful runs of the mid-west Mike could no longer commit to the road so Nick stepped back in to fulfill the bassist position.
SRM would release its first EP in May of 2016. “Encumbered We Press”, but 2016 would not be kind to SRM. Christmas 2016 saw the loss of John due to an underage drunk driver. SRM would meet the following day and discuss the future of SRM, and decided since Nick was a guitarist first; SRM would move him to the guitarist position and audition for the bass player position. Jim Bob Lehr an accomplished bassist filled the open position and in 2017, SRM would see it’s fan base to continue to grow after a couple of tours and several headline performances with the new line up, and new music would soon follow.
SRM is currently in the studio recording the follow up to “Encumbered We Press”, and is about to release the first single and video off the new EP under the Mugen Music and Management Inc. label in 2018. The first single “Iron Disposition” will be available worldwide in January 2018.
