In a short interview with Rock Sound Magazine, two-piece run, WALK! have announced that they plan on calling it a day following their final show at this year’s 2000 Trees Festival and shortly before releasing their debut record, ‘☤’. Read their statement below:
“I can’t believe I’m sat here writing this. About 3 and a half years ago Run Walk first come into fruition. We had the common goals of travelling as far as we could, touring as much as possible, playing super loud and having fun. We’ve met some of the best people on our travels many of which have become some of our greatest friends. Sadly as time went on our common goals became harder to maintain. Real life began to take its toll as we grew up, however, as long time best friends and being devoted to playing our music we made it work for a long time but sadly it can’t go on forever.
The people we’ve been luckily enough to work with have always been fantastic and we’re beyond proud to have been involved with them. One of our best friends, Alex from Holy Roar Records has offered to put out our debut album on 12″. There will 100 copies and no more. Released on 16th July the album is titled ☤
The album is about growing up, meeting new people and coping with extreme change. A little snippet of our lives from the last year or so. We hope you like it. Thank you if you’ve supported us on our journey.”
