Roomrunner are returning from a short break after a marathon 2012/2013. Touring almost constantly since the band's inception in 2011, Roomrunner issued two EPs and their debut albumIdeal Cities (May 2013) during that short span. The band took the latter half of 2013 to relax and regroup, writing new material while trying to focus on new directions, all of which culminated in a week long recording session with the legendary J. Robbins.
Leroy (Roomrunner Guitar Tech) hard at work.
Formed after the dissolution of Denny Bowen's much-beloved post-hardcore trio Double Dagger, Roomrunner finds Bowen ditching the drum kit for a guitar and a microphone. Already gaining a reputation for being deafeningly loud on stage, the band is returning from a short break for a winter tour (check below for dates). Another single, apart from the forthcoming EP, is also rumored to be in the works. Stay tuned for more details.
