Blood Red Renaissance are a rock band from Adelaide, South Australia. Since forming in 2005, BRR have ploughed through a series of unpredictable live shows, released a slew of singles and albums, and both infuriated and delighted people across the country. Constantly on the verge of losing members or going into receivership, they've somehow managed to stay the course and fly the flag for truly original music.
- 2005: BRR forms as a four-piece band to learn and record Davis' songs. The band also began to write songs collectively.

- 2011: Hutchinson steps down from the band due to hand surgery. English-born guitarist Pete Sears (formerly of Caffiene Kill and Acid Tongue) joins as his replacement. The band begins recording a new EP in November.
