RUNNER RUNNER: The self-titled album available NOW!





2011 album from the Southern California Alt-Rock quintet. Runner Runner's self-titled debut combines skillful songwriting and musicianship, punk-infused intensity and humungous pop hooks. The entrance that Runner Runner  is making on an unsuspecting music scene is in keeping with its name that has its origins in Ogren and Berry's love of poker: "runner runner" is a poker term that, loosely defined, means coming out of nowhere and pulling off a winning hand at the last possible moment. Produced by Dave Darling (Stray Cats, Brian Setzer, Soulive), Runner Runner introduces a vital young band blessed with a rarefied collective gift for crafting instantly accessible songs that reveal additional layers of meaning with each listening, as well as the elevated skills to deliver their taut material with slam-dunk forcefulness.
