Red Line Chemistry is an American hard rock band formed in 2004, hailing from Kansas City, Missouri.


Originally named Penumbra,[1] the band added vocalist Brett Ditgen and changed their name to Red Line Chemistry in 2004. With the help of local radio support in their home state of Missouri, the band was able to score a spot on stage at Kansas City Rock Fest 2007 and the Warped Tour. They have also performed 5 times between 2008 and 2011 at Pointfest,[2][3] a bi-annual rock festival held by rock station KPNT FM.

Red Line Chemistry has performed with Stone Temple Pilots, Puddle of Mudd, Thousand Foot Krutch, Sevendust, Godsmack, Three Days Grace and many others. The band toured nationally with Evans Blue in 2010 and with Saving Abel, Egypt Central and Burn Halo in 2011.

With the release of the band's latest album Tug Of War on May 14, 2013, produced by Grammy-award winning producer Nick Raskulinecz,[4] the band spent much of the summer touring alongside Nonpoint, Drowning Pool and Whitesnake.[5]

Red Line Chemistry have just inked a deal with Pavement Entertainment. The first release with this new partnership will be the long awaited official and special edition release of their 2006 album “Chemical High and a Hand Grenade.” Slated for a second quarter 2015 release, the album will be re-mixed, re-mastered, and re-invented.
