Currently, Run, Forever is at the Braddock Hit Factory Studio with ex-Pissed Jeans bassist Dave Rosenstraus finishing up with recording and mixing for the ten songs that will appear on Settling. The album is the follow-up to the punk trio's well-received 2010 debut long-player, The Devil, And Death, And Me, which was released by Solidarity Recordings. Last year Run, Forever released an EP titled A Few Good Things, as well as a Split with Atlanta's The Wild, which can be downloaded for free at If You Make It. Both 7-inches were also issued by Solidarity.
Known for its tireless work ethic and resolute DIY attitude, Run, Forever has spent much of the last two years on the road, playing to enthusiastic fans in tiny clubs, sweaty basements and crowded house shows around the country. From fist-pumping, sing-along punk anthems to swinging folk rockers to more intimate acoustic numbers, the outfit's songs touch on issues such as the corruption of organized religion, politics and - on its debut - the struggle to overcome the tragic loss of former band mate. Run, Forever never fails to impress with its ability to write driving, gritty tunes without sacrificing melody or falling into predictability, and its music is one of those rare specimens that resonates profoundly in both our ears and our hearts.
Stay tuned for plenty more Run, Forever news in the coming months, including final artwork and track listing, exclusive song premieres and a full U.S. tour in October leading up to FEST 11.
