Intense Apparatus

Florida emo/screamo-pop quintet Red Jumpsuit Apparatus may be one of the quietest success stories in recent years, having jumped from the pack of Warped Tour forgettables to platinum-selling stars -- via 2006’s Don’t You Fake It and the recently released Lonely Road -- without a ton of fanfare. Frontman and chief lyricist Ronnie Winter has led the band through several lineup changes since its early ’00s formation. He’s prone to write heavy shit about domestic abuse and the dangers of peer pressure, but he’s also known to crack wise and party down from time to time, too.
