"Live Performance"

"Energetic and passionate live performance fusing catchy rock anthems with a pop-punk undertone. A band not to be missed." - Gareth Varndell (Theory Project Revolution)


"Tonight We Run: Take Her Home"

"These guys have bucket loads of potential" - Dave Snocken (I Am Mighty Records)


"Tonight We Run-Take Her Home"

Tonight We Run is a group of five guys aged 15-16 from South Hampshire. Formed just over a year ago now, they are going from strength to strength and have played the Wedgewood Rooms as part of the Unsigned Showcase as well as headlining The Hamptons for their EP release.
The first song on their MySpace site Take her Home is an upbeat track with a very catchy opening beat and an overall memorable tune the whole way through. The vocals sound good and the song has some really well written lyrics and a great ‘storyline’ that listeners will be able to relate to making them more inclined to listen and recommend the band to others. The whole song is structured well and has a really good flow about it. I can definitely see it being a popular set opener at gigs that will really set the audience to a positive mood. It has a great potential and I would really like to see a live performance of it to see how it compares!
Woah starts off with an absolutely brilliant opening guitar solo, clearly cleverly written. The band have obviously sat down and really thought about this song, and not just thrown together a few chords like some other bands I have seen. The lyrics, as with Take her Home have been well written and have had lots of thought put into them. As with the opening, the brilliant use of guitar solos continues through the whole song, and will really draw in an audience. The vocals are unique and stand out to me as being something special about the band. I’m not overly keen on the line near the end of the song “You and him are murderers” but that’s just my personal opinion, and it doesn’t put me off the song as a whole at all.
With influences such as ‘You Me At Six’, ‘Young Guns’ and ‘Paramore’, you can tell this band mean business and are really passionate about the music that they are playing.
Overall, ‘Tonight We Run’ have obviously worked really hard since they formed and have already racked up a good fan base for themselves. I’m really looking forward to hearing more from this group and I’m expecting great things to come in the future!
Rating 9/10 - Iona Butlin

Bio

Forming in the summer of 2009, Tonight We Run wasted no time in making an impression on the Home Counties music scene. The catchy alternative/ pop punk band from Petersfield in Hampshire have recently released their latest EP “Take Her Home”, as the eagerly awaited follow up to their debut cd “Distance Doesn’t Matter” which was released in the spring of 2010. The title track of their latest EP is currently available for download on iTunes. The band’s next release is due out this summer and will be accompanied by a video, which will be submitted to Lava TV, in addition to various online mediums. Furthermore, in the next few weeks, Tonight We Run will be the centre of attention in a two page feature for “Screaming Out Loud Magazine”, which has distribution to young people all across the south of England. Such exposure will see the band reach even more people, and allow them to take greater strides forward in their ambitions within music.
The last year has seen the band line up alongside some phenomenal artists at some well established venues including a headline date at “Hamptons” – one of Southampton’s most established music venues. In addition performances at Portsmouth’s premier music venue “The Wedgewood Rooms” and the industry recognised “Boileroom” in Guildford, among others see the band gaining considerable experience despite their young age. Looking ahead, with summer festival appearances planned and support slots with the likes of Theory Of 6 Degrees - the youngest band to ever play Glastonbury, there seems to be no stopping the band in their ambitions to break through and succeed at their passion to perform.
