Pittsburgh punk trio Run, Forever recently released their second LP, Settling, via Tiny Engines. It’s been over a year since the band last released any new music, and they’re celebrating the new album by setting out on a tour with labelmates State Lines. The tour hits Kansas City’s Art Closet Studios for a show with Emo Side Project on Sunday, January 13. Singer and guitarist Anthony Heubel spoke with us via e-mail about the new record, touring, and cats.
The Wild / Run, Forever
With this release, I’m not sure what I’m happier about: the new bands to whom I’ve been introduced, or the fact that the 7-inch comes with a ‘zine. They’re both so exciting. Seriously, though, I am pretty damn jazzed about the Wild and Run, Forever. Both bands are pretty raucous, yet heartfelt, with the Wild leaning a little closer to the folk-punk end of the spectrum, and Run, Forever going a bit more towards the anthemic. Think of the Wild as Andrew Jackson Jihad and Run, Forever as Against Me! They’re both on the same wavelength, with the primary being a little more rooted in the acoustic and intimate than the latter.
