Redd Kross Shares “I’ll Take Your Word For It”

Redd Kross shares “I’ll Take Your Word For It,” the third single made available from the highly anticipated 18-track eponymous double album (In the Red Records), due for release June 28, 2024. A perfect blast of ‘60s-shaded harmony and guitar tangle, “I’ll Take Your Word For It” is accompanied by a glorious outdoor video filmed in Los Angeles in view of the iconic Hollywood sign, directed by journalist, photographer, and videographer Steve Appleford, who is incidentally the cinematographer of the brilliant documentary Born Innocent: The Redd Kross Story, directed by Andrew Reich, which is currently wowing audiences at festival screenings.

Steven McDonald shares:

“‘I’ll Take Your Word For It’ although based on real events it is not about any specific person. It’s an amalgamation of several types, that so-called friend that always seems to bring up the ex, or perhaps a working relationship that ended poorly despite your best and most earnest attempts at civility. ‘Are you my friend, are you my foe? I don’t know’

The video I suppose offers one possible antidote for this situation. When you’re contemplating telling your nemesis to take a hike, maybe it’s smarter to put on your best suit, matching bass, and matching band (if you’re as lucky as I am) and take a hike yourself. That’s what I did and it made me feel so much better.

And with that I’ll say check out ‘I’ll Take Your Word For It.’ We hope you dig it.”

Redd Kross are gearing up with their first TOUR DATES since before the pandemic, starting with a recent appearance at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas, followed by a set at Azkena Rock Festival in Spain later this week, before kicking-off a full-on SUMMER TOUR that starts in early July just after the album’s release, with support from Dale Crover who is wearing many hats, playing drums with Redd Kross for these dates, and opening with solo acoustic + DJ sets.
