The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is an American rock band that formed in Middleburg, Florida. The band was started by childhood friends Ronnie Winter and Duke Kitchens. After members from Duke and Ronnie's other bands (Dishonest and The Recovery) joined them, the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was officially formed in 2003. The name 'Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' was chosen by the band voting for random words they threw up on a wall.
