ANOTHER RUN – SATURDAY, 5/9 @ 1:00PM
Another Run was born and raised in the heart of Houston’s music scene, a band known for it’s cleverly catchy rhythms and melodies, as well as their intense and energetic live performances! The band has been playing since the turn of the millennium–starting with only three members, and then growing to 5. The addition of a new drummer towards the end of 2009 relieved the lead singer of double duties, and then a second guitar player was added in December of 2010. That was a big year for the boys which saw the Fall release of the album “I’ll Be There”. In May, 2011 they released a music video for the single “What Happened?” which would soon become a featured video on FUSE TV. October 2011 saw the release of the second, eponymous single/music video from “I’ll Be There”, and in November an East coast tour including four dates in NYC. March 2012 found the boys of Another Run playing 5 unofficial shows at SXSW, and in the Summer they also started receiving airplay on FM radio & PANDORA Internet Radio! August 8th, 2012 was an exciting moment for Another Run with the win of the Houston Press Music Award for Best Modern Rock, and they finished out the year with a win for Best Alternative Rock Band at The Texas Buzz Music Awards! In 2013 the band made multiple unofficial appearances again at SXSW, and also shared the stage with national artists such as Girl In A Coma, Hawthorne Heights, New Politics, The Almost, O’ Brother, and Glassjaw! On August 25th, 2013 the song “I’m Not Afraid” became the third single released from “I’ll Be There” with its FM radio premiere, and then on December 13th a new cd/single titled “Hunt Me Down” was released as well with accompanying b-side “Knock Me Out”! Early 2014 then brought the release of “Hunt Me Down” and “Knock Me Out” on MTV.COM/ARTISTS! On June 1st, Another Run was honored to share the bill with such acts as Jack White, Cage The Elephant, Deftones, Childish Gambino, Vampire Weekend, Die Antwoord, and so many more at Free Press Summer Fest 2014! Then on August 7th 2014, Another Run picked up another win for “Best Modern/Alternative Rock” at the Houston Press Music Awards! Two days later they were honored to share the stage with MUTEMATH! Opportunity kept knocking on their door, as opening shows with Maps & Atlases, Finch, Into it. Over it, Lemuria, Alpha Rev, & Paul Wall followed shortly after! The beginning of 2015 welcomed a new drummer into the Another Run family, and they have now set the date Saturday, May 9th for the release of the upcoming “Be Honest” record! Be on the lookout for these boys, as they are not stopping any time soon!
