Pittsburgh, PA’s RUN FOREVER recently announced a pair of week-long tours for April and May in support of its newest full-length, SETTLING, which was released by Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, Dikembe, Restorations, State Faults, Signals Midwest) earlier this year.
Next month’s trek (May 14 – 21) will unite Run Forever with Michigan’s Pity Sex (Run For Cover Records) and includes an appearance at Montreal’s Pouzza Fest. Specifics for both tours are below. As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.
On a related note, watch this brand new video for the song “Sun Bruised.” Filmed by Tyler Long of Press and Release Media Co., it features footage from Run Forever’s recent U.S. tour with label mates State Lines.
Recorded by ex-Pissed Jeans bassist Dave Rosenstraus at the Braddock Hit Factory Studio, Settling is the outfit’s sophomore long-player and follow-up to The Devil, And Death, And Me. The album is now available on 12-inch LP and digital formats from Tiny Engines. Run Forever also pressed a CD version on bassist Cassie Staub’s fledgling label, Out Of This Records.
To stream Settling in its entirety, go here.

The term “heart-on-your-sleeve” was made for albums like Settling, the most recent full-length from Pittsburgh punk trio Run Forever. The phrase has always meant that your emotions can be plainly heard or seen by all around, and with singer / guitarist Anthony Heubel’s two-and-a-half minute introspective examinations, all set to a Menzingers-like crunch, you’d have to be pretty soulless to not feel, or even relate. Unlike a lot of their ilk, nearly all of Heubel’s frustrations – missing those close to him, fearing he may not leave a mark on the world – are all on him and not his surroundings, delivered without any sort of pretension or melodrama. This is the sound of a therapy session or diary left unguarded for family, friends and strangers to absorb, tagged with a note at the end reading “Come find me when you’re done.” Not as a threat, but as an invitation to help dig a little deeper.
