RUN FOR COVER NEWS //

One Step Closer released their debut full-length, This Place You Know, last year on Run For Cover Records, and since then they've grown into one of the most exciting new bands in modern hardcore. The album drew attention from the likes of Stereogum, Revolver Magazine, The FADER, BrookylnVegan, NPR, SPIN, Bandcamp Daily, FLOOD Magazine and more, and it kicked off a nearly endless run of shows. One Step Closer are showing no signs of slowing down, and today the Wilkes-Barre upstarts have shared a new song "Dark Blue" ahead of another year of heavy touring.
"Dark Blue" finds One Step Closer leaning into the most melodic elements of their sound without sacrificing an ounce of energy. The song's launches into a towering chorus that pushes the band into even more anthemic territory and offers hints at new potential directions in their music.

LANNDS, the newly Los Angeles-based duo of vocalist-guitarist Rania Woodard and multi-instrumentalist Brian Squillace, have released another transportive new single, "Overseas/BACK 2 U" out today.
The track follows the band's recent single "K TOWN" (which drew attention from the likes of The FADER, BrooklynVegan, and more), and offers another great jumping on point for LANNDS' vibrant psych-pop. Built on a warbling synth line and Woodard's entrancing vocals, "Overseas/Back 2 U" unfolds like a hazy dream, welcoming you into otherworldly but deeply human nature of LANNDS' music.
Woodard discussed the new song, saying:
"This song is meant to capture the tragedies of unfortunate unrequited love. Sometimes you meet a person and you realize you both are in different places in your lives and it just doesn’t work out. I wanted to write about the feelings in between the silence, the feelings after you realize you wish things were different, and the moments you realize that no matter what this person will still and always occupy a space in your heart and the way you move through life from then on."

Pre-order Narrow Head's Moments of Clarity
Out February 10th 2023
Solitude, melancholy, and revelation bleed into each other throughout Narrow Head’s, Moments of Clarity, transporting the listener through a vast terrain of emotional spaces. Traversing the depths of towering, churning riffs, bouncing, lock-grooved rhythms, and crystalline, gorgeously constructed hooks, the Houston-based outfit puts on a masterclass in the art of writing songs that match the pain, pleasure, and confusion of modern living. Each track is sentimental without being precious, heavy without unnecessary griminess, pop-forward without letting the listener off the hook easy: these songs ask for some form of hurt or desire to be paid back to them in return, some promise that the listener is putting equal skin into the game.
Watch "Moments of Clarity" music video
Moments of Clarity reflects a matured sense of purpose. Longtime Narrow Head fans will undoubtedly still recognize the band’s signature marriage of brutality and grace, and many of the core themes of desolation, loss, and self-medication that the band established on their prior records Satisfaction (2016) and 12th House Rock (2020) continue to haunt the edges of Moments of Clarity. All the same, Moments rises above the darkness with a sense of elegant repose. While not exactly optimistic in outlook, these songs simmer with a certain life affirming desire, a burning passion to transcend pure cynicism and self-destruction, if only for even a few seconds.
The forthcoming Narrow Head album is also available in a special subscriber edition through our Magic Circle Subscription. The special edition LP is limited to 100 copies on "blue and clear pinwheel" vinyl and come with hand numbered foil stamped obi-strips. Find more info about how to join the Magic Circle here.
After a successful, headlining Fall North American run, Narrow Head are thrilled to announce they’ll be back on the road in February 2023 with White Reaper. See below for a full list of dates and to purchase tickets, go here.

Today, Virginia band Turnover releases their new album Myself in the Way. The band's fifth full-length album includes the previously-released singles "Tears of Change," which the band shared a new video earlier this week, "Ain't Love Heavy" featuring Bre Morell, "Mountains Made of Clouds," "Wait Too Long" and the album's title track featuring Brendan Yates of Turnstile.
Preceded by album listening events in New York, Boston & LA last week, Turnover is also embarking on their headline fall tour run to celebrate the album's release. The tour features support from George Clanton, Yumi Zouma, Horse Jumper of Love, Video Age, Temple of Angels and Riki on select dates, and recently-announced special guest performances from KEEP, Reptaliens, Ceremony, Spiritual Cramp, The Gas and Owen Casey on select dates as well. The 34-date run will begin on November 5th in Boston, with stops in Chicago, Nashville, Seattle, Los Angeles, Austin, Atlanta and a hometown show in Norfolk before wrapping up in Philadelphia on December 18th. Tickets on sale HERE.
Myself in the Way was born out of Turnover's desire to continue evolving their sound, making each body of work more exploratory than the last, but it's also a byproduct of the band's growth both as individuals and collectively. Armed with a flurry of new ways for the band to express themselves creatively, they challenged themselves to make their most ambitious body of work to date. Co-produced by frontman Austin Getz alongside frequent collaborator Will Yip, Myself In The Way sounds more expansive than anything they've done, intently honing in on sound design this time around, and yet it's wholeheartedly more intimate and self-reliant on their vision and execution. Bassist Danny Dempsey painted the cover artwork himself, and longtime touring guitarist Nick Rayfield contributed songs to the album to lend an additional spark.
Check out Myself in the Way and the video for "Tears of Change" above, see the full tour routing and album details, along with more info about the band below and stay tuned for more music from Turnover coming soon.

Stream "K TOWN" everywhere
LANNDS, the newly Los Angeles-based duo of vocalist-guitarist Rania Woodard and multi-instrumentalist Brian Squillace, have released a sprawling new single, "K TOWN." Out today via Run For Cover Records, the track provides the perfect introduction to the vibrant psych-pop that LANNDS excel at. Woodard's entrancing vocals envelope the listener in a pillowy cloud of hooks that sits atop a foundation of propulsive bass, layered percussion, and dreamy synth flourishes. The song comes to a spiraling conclusion with a shimmering guitar solo that cuts through the lush production, highlighting LANNDS' ability to make transportive, otherworldly music that still feels deeply organic and human.
Since forming in 2017, LANNDS have been steadily releasing EPs and always pushing their sound in new directions. "K TOWN" follows lotus deluxe, a reissue of their 2020 EP with new material that marked their first collaboration with Run For Cover Records and garnered attention from the likes of NPR, BrooklynVegan, FLOOD Magazine, and more. Now "K TOWN" offers an enticing hint of what's to come from LANNDS. The new track was entirely produced, engineered, and mixed by Squillace and Woodard, reflecting the duo's uniquely in-house approach to making such sweeping, widescreen music. “When we do it ourselves, even if it’s a little more 'home done' sounding, it’s just more us,” Squillace says. Years of collaboration have allowed the duo to embrace each other’s creative skills – whether it be Woodard’s blossoming layers of vocal melodies, or Squillace’s soulful piano chords – and shape them into a sound they can truly feel at home in, without the weight of outside influence. The result is a sound that LANNDS can truly call their own – and there's more to come.
