    Established in 2018 against the backdrop of Virginia Beach, Red Weather stands as a cornerstone of the Emo and Pop-Punk genres. The band is comprised of Tim Ilardi (vocals/bass), Brian Bassette (drums), Chris Cornell (guitar/vocals), and Ethan McQuade (guitar).

    Building on the success of their debut EP "Empty Places" (2020) and the emotive journey of their debut full-length "Wish You Well" (2021), Red Weather entered 2023 with purpose. They unveiled three singles, showcasing a continued commitment to exploring the intricate nuances of their sound. These releases set the stage for the band's inaugural two tours in 2023, a testament to their growing influence.

    Having shared stages with esteemed acts such as Trophy Eyes, Valleyheart, Mae, and Every Avenue, Red Weather's journey goes beyond mere musical exploration. With a dedication to their art and a respect for the gravity of Emo and Pop-Punk, the band is poised for a continued impact, both locally and beyond the shores of Virginia Beach.
