Scarlet calls it quits

Saturday, January 27, 2007 4:50 PM PT


Four years after their Ferret Music debut, Richmond's Scarlet has officially broken up. The decision apparently resulted primarily from the departure of vocalist Brandon Roundtree. According to the band, "We feel it would be unfair to fans, and to ourselves, to try and continue with yet another singer."

Meanwhile, drummer Andreas Magnusson and guitarist Randy Vanderbilt, who co-wrote and produced all of Scarlet's releases, recently formed a new band called Coworker. You can check them out here.

I was wondering when they were going to post this. Too bad; Andreas is an excellent drummer & producer. I love how Coworker looks like Cow Orker.

This Coworker band is trying to sound like muse/radiohead way too much. Sucks.

1/28/2007 9:32:54 AM
i enjoyed coworked a lot actually. It did remind me of muse and coldplay, which means they remind me of radiohead rip off bands

1/28/2007 9:34:49 AM
SHITTY news. it's good that andreas and randy are gonna keep working together though, all that material came straight from them and i'm glad it's not over.

to me, scarlet broke up when john left. scarlet post-john was not scarlet.

1/28/2007 9:54:34 PM

1/29/2007 12:48:26 PM
they were good. with their original singer. so spitfire is the better band now. scarlet's last album was meh at best. some catchiness.
