Wilkes Barre, PA hardcore upstarts One Step Closer recently announced their debut full-length, This Place You Know, and today they're back with another preview of the album, "Chrysanthemum." Due out September 24th from Run For Cover Records, This Place You Know, finds One Step Closer honing their passionate and anthemic style of hardcore to create their most urgent and compelling set of songs to date, and proving why the young band has already garnered a reputation for standing out from the pack.
"Chrysanthemum" follows lead single "Pringle Street" (which earned early attention from the likes of Revolver Magazine, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, NPR, and more) and captures One Step Closer at their most ambitious. The dynamic song seamlessly pulls together moments of fragile melody and powerful hardcore eventually building to a soaring conclusion.
The band have a slew of upcoming dates, including shows with Terror, Comeback Kid and Knocked Loose.

We are excited to announce the September 17 release of Always In Motion, the debut album from Mini Trees,
The project of California born and Los Angeles-based artist, Lexi Vega, Always In Motion is a collection of relatable indie-pop songs that acknowledge our collective anxiety about life’s improbability. “Over the course of the album I teeter-totter between having questions and wanting answers, but the resolution is to be okay with not knowing. I think I do find some acceptance along the way, but the album purposefully concludes with no real resolution," Vega said.
To celebrate the announcement, Vega released a brand new single, “Carrying On.” The driving, upbeat track follows the debut of previous single, “Spring.” Watch the video for “Carrying On” here.
Fresh off the news of a new single and Run For Cover signing, Valley Palace returns, inviting you to spend the day with him. Enjoy a video hang with Valley Palace's Nathan Taylor as he goes skateboarding, talks TIkTok, and tries a burger joint that he's never been to.
In case you missed it, Valley Palace has signed with RFC. Named an act to watch out for by Paste, you can stream the newest single, "Friend," out everywhere now.
In addition to two record release shows, one in Brooklyn and one in LA (sold out) Runnner will be hitting the road this fall in both the US and UK alongside Skullcrusher. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.
