Red Line Chemistry was 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.

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