The Latest

I am never quite sure how to start at new blog post. It feels sorta like writing a mailing list email or perhaps a diary entry. I suppose I’ll just get on with the updates. I’ll go in numerical order.

1.  We are very excited to announce that we are now working with Team Clermont on a press campaign for our new album “Normal.” Our national release date for the album has been set for January 10, 2012. Check us out on their roster:

2. We’ve gotten a few little write ups recently. Check them out:

Charleston City Paper – 11/16/11

The Indie Machine – 10/28/11

Stagedive Malta – 11/18/11

Dead Journalist – 10/24/11

Undisclosed Locations – 10/25/11

3. You should definitely VOTE for Run Dan Run’s “Normal” as Album of the Year on Scene SC.

Other news of note: we’re currently working on setting up a music video for “Lovesick Animal”. We hope to get this done in the next few weeks and hope to debut it in the in the new year. It ought to be fun. I’ll keep you posted.

CD Release Show this Saturday, November 19th!

by rundanrun on November 16, 2011

The time has come. The band has arrived in town, Nick Jenkins from NYC, Ash Hopkins from Bahama, NC. We’ve secured a practice space. We’ve begun daily rehearsals. We’ve ironed our dress pants, etc.

This Saturday, November 19th Run Dan Run will be playing our new album “Normal” live for the Charlestonian masses at The Village Tavern. The cover is $5 and the show is all ages ($5 surcharge for those under 21). Bill Carson will be opening for us. We have 3 additional musicians/friends helping us pull this off so Run Dan Run will be a 6-piece for the night featuring: Kevin Hackler – trumpet, auxiliary percussion, Erin McKinley – keyboards, vocals, & Shane Greer – guitar. Mr. Jenkins will be performing a special post-show DJ set.

This show will be a real treat that I tell you you do not want to miss. This is THE Run Dan Run show to see.

Ken Cohen of Soft Blanket Productions will be directing and editing the video. We’re very excited about working with him on this.

Hope to see you soon. Don’t forget, you can listen to the new record on our Bandcamp and purchase it directly from there or our Webstore (physical copies).
