“Red Rocks is an ancient monument built to mark astronomical events and capture the light of the cosmos - our production is the instrument we use to experience and project this light.” The band announced on social media, following it shortly with this explanation. “Sound of the Light in July, the harmony of sound, color, and light. Each night will feature 3 total STS9 sets, and 1 set each night will feature a special ChromaLight set, where we synchronize our instruments with the lighting and production. Colorwaves will influence soundwaves. Different keys make different colors. Scales = Spectrums. Sound-to-color synesthesia. We aim to create new realities and transcendent moments at a venue that has fostered many memories for STS9 since 2003.” “Red Rocks is iconic for us. Every year we try to outdo the year before, and 20 years later we’re gonna take it up another notch. Join us for another magical weekend in Colorado!”
