More band members either exited or were asked to leave the group and the three remaining members, vocalist Ronnie Winter, guitarist Duke Kitchens and guitarist/vocalist Elias Reidy began rebuilding The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, soon completing the current quintet with the addition of bassist Joey Westwood and drummer Jon Wilkes. Reidy and Westwood were childhood friends and had also previously played together in a metal band called In Fate's Hands. With Tramposch behind the machine, the band were soon offered contracts from a number a labels, major and Indie alike, ultimately signing with Virgin Records and it's new President, Jason Flom in late November, 2005. They entered the studio with producer David Bendeth (of Hawthorne Heights, and Breaking Benjamin), and in 2005 The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus began creating their debut full-length. The resulting Don't You Fake It was released in July 2006, and most of that summer was spent on the road, including the Warped Tour. The band has also received publicity on MTV, including MTV's Discover and Download, and their song In Fate's Hands landed a spot on the coveted Madden 2007 Soundtrack. Face Down was also used as the theme for the finals in the 2006 WWE Diva Search. The band is currently not sure what their next single will be. In a recent MTV interview RJA guitarist Elias said that if the band had it their way the song "Atrophy" would be their next single. No news has been announced on whether or not this is true.
The best fucking band EVER!
