Born out of Hawthorne, CA Redd Kross is a pop punk band that began to take form in 1978 under the name The Tourists, before changing its name and releasing its self-titled EP Red Cross, in 1980. With a sound that merges hardcore punk with power pop and alternative rock, the band collected a fan base in Southern California with three full-length albums, starting with 1982's Born Innocent, before signing with Atlantic Records and dropping its major label debut, Third Eye, in 1990. Following the death of guitarist Eddie Kurdziel in 1999, Redd Kross embarked on an indefinite hiatus in 1999 until 2006, when the band's lineup from the late 1980s reunited to play in Los Angeles. The band embarked on a subsequent tour of Spain and the UK before stopping at some of the largest festivals around the US.
