R U N is a new Australian project built on several collective decades spent toiling through success and failure within the Australian heavy music underground. A duo compromised of vocalist Lochlan Watt (former live member of Thy Art Is Murder/Psycroptic) and guitarist Mike Deslandes (YLVA/High Tension), they pull together extreme metal fury, hardcore accessibility, and the heady contemplation of post-rock into a sound that you’ve likely heard in various places several times before – just never quite blended together like this.
Signalling the project’s foreboding yet bittersweet nature, R U N has today unveiled their debut single ‘For You‘. in spite of the title, ‘For You’ is written for oneself, as Watt explains:
“There are several meanings tied up in ‘For You’ – it is a song born from extreme emotional pain, but it is also a song that looks forward while standing firm. It wasn’t written for others… it was written for the self, and where you take it from there is up to you.”
