RED was officially formed by guitarist Anthony Armstrong, bassist and twin brother, Randy Armstrong and lead vocalist, Michael Barnes. Guitarist Jasen Rauch, according to the End of Silence album booklet, is the band's primary composer. Enlisting the talents of Grammy-nominated and Dove award-winning rock producer, Rob Graves, RED signed a development contract with Graves' independent production company. After recording several demo songs, the band was quickly signed by SONY BMG imprint, Essential Records. Hendrix was fired and after an extended search, the band chose Hayden Lamb (twin brother of former Paramore guitarist, Hunter Lamb) as his replacement on drums. As a result of his successful early work with RED, Graves was chosen to produce the band's debut album End of Silence.
