ADDED COLOR is a Brazilian/American rock band formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2014, and is comprised of brothers Daniel and Kiko Freiberg (São Paulo), Tim Haggerty (Boston), and Danny Dahan (Washington DC). The group has played over 200 shows in over 20 states in the USA, and toured internationally playing a mini-tour in Canada and major festivals in Brazil such as Porão do Rock, which has featured Muse, Eagles of Death Metal, amongst others. The Monsters of Rock Festival officially nominated them as one of five of Brazil’s upcoming rock bands. Added Color has received critical praise from significant press outlets such as PureVolume, Red Bull Music, The Huffington Post, AOL Noisecreep, and The Village Voice.
Added Color first met in Brooklyn, after brothers Dan and Kiko Freiberg moved back from São Paulo, Brazil with only one goal in mind: start a hard hitting and unique sounding band that had the attitude and realness they hadn’t seen in rock music in a while. Through Craiglist ads and jam sessions, they found Tim and Danny. Their musical compatibility quickly developed into a strong friendship, where musical influences ranging from funk to rock blended into what the band states “is simply original sounding music that sums up who we are.” Dan Freiberg elaborates, “Don’t try to put a bunch of names in front of it to categorize it and put it in a box. That’s exactly what we are sick of.”
Added Color made their debut release on May 9, 2017. The 5-song EP is entitled “Psycho”, and was backed by an international tour, which began in Morocco and was followed by a 6-week tour in the USA. “We wrote about 20 songs and played them live in many different cities. The songs that made it to the EP were the ones that translated the best into a live scenario and that we felt represented us the most”, says Kiko Freiberg on the EP.
Added Color brings a high energy and exciting show, whether they’re playing big stages in Brazilian festivals or more intimate venues. Their message: be yourself no matter what, and don’t play into people’s expectations of who you should be.
