The Red Paintings hit the studio with the Sea Shepherd crew members the night before the crew left for Antarctic waters to tackle Japanese whaling ships. The recording is an important statement for the Sea Shepherd's Operation Musashi campaign made through song and it is a statement that they want the whole world to hear.

Local artists Maaike Johnson, Moogie Blyth and Adele Walker were in the studio when the band recorded this song, painting the experience on canvas.

The song and the paintings will be released in January 2009 on a limited edition 7" white vinyl with a remix of the band's latest single, "We Belong in the Sea". Only 150 copies will be pressed. Order direct to store@theredpaintings.com
