RUN, FOREVER has teamed up with the fine folks at Absolutepunk.net to premier a video for “Basement,” the fourth track from the punk trio’s incredible new full-length, Settling. Filmed in Run, Forever’s hometown of Braddock (Pittsburgh), PA by Tyler Long of Press and Release Media Co., you can watch this ABSOLUTExclusive here. A free mp3 for the song is available here as well.
Settling was recently released on 12-inch LP and digital formats by Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, Dikembe, Restorations, State Faults, Signals Midwest), with the former limited to a pressing of 500 on green (100), pink (125), blue (125) and white / black smoke (150) vinyl. Recorded by ex-Pissed Jeans bassist Dave Rosenstraus at the Braddock Hit Factory Studio. The album is the follow-up to Run, Forever’s well-received 2010 debut long-player, The Devil, And Death, And Me.
To stream Settling in its entirety, go to Tiny Engines’ Bandcamp.
Fresh off a U.S. tour with label mates State Lines, you can expect plenty more of the same in the coming months, as the hard-working outfit has been confirmed for Stay Sweet Fest in April and Pouzza Fest in May. Stay tuned for future Run, Forever updates, including an exciting new release. Also, be sure to follow Tiny Engines’ Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter pages for all the latest news on the label and its bands.
