Southern California-based emo-punk-pop
ockers Runner Runner specialize in the kind of expertly crafted modern rock that accompanies fleshy spring-break montages and sappy American Idol exits. Conceived as an emo-pop side project for members of SoCal punk outfit Over It, Runner Runner know exactly what they want, and make no effort to hide their commercial yearnings. Big, rousing group vocals in the style of Andrew W.K. and Anberlin, huge guitar hooks, dancefloor-ready electro beats, and enough Auto-Tune to render Kanye West's use of the much maligned pitch correction software subtle, the 12 tracks that make up the band's ...

    Amazing CD

    I've been a fan of Runner Runner for awhile, so I was psyched when their cd was finally released. It doesn't disappoint. My favorite is Hey Alli, but the whole cd has been on repeat now since release.

    Full of Great new favorite songs!

    This Runner Runner CD is full of a lot of my new favorite songs. It seems that there are a variety of songs to fit your mood. With "So Obvious", I will be dancing to it and with "Hey Alli" my friends and I will be singing along to it. I love the vocals and the great lyrics! Other faves of mine are Papercuts and Running Away. ~ marisol r.

    Give Runner Runner your support!

    This album is a must have! Runner Runner is an amazing band with five great guys who have worked VERY hard on their debut album. Their songs can be easily related to anyone's lives. While some are more happy and energetic, Runner Runner has added a few calmer, slower songs that are more emotional. These guys need all the support that they can, especially this first week! Buy the album, give it a listen, you won't regret it!

    Pick This Up!

    I've been waiting for this album for awhile! I definitely picked it up at 12:01 AM on Tuesday and I haven't stopped listening to it since! These guys really are some of the sweetest and most awesome guys I know in the music business. I really hope they make it far in their career. If you've never heard of Runner Runner before make sure to check out this A+ debut album! It's dancey. It's pop. It's indy. It's catchy. It's bound to become your new favorite album!

    Highly Recommended! Great cd!

    This is an amazing cd by a very talented group of guys. I have been a fan of these guys for a long time and am so happy that their cd is finally out. These tracks range from upbeat get up and dance songs to tear jerking ballads. Not only is this a really well put together album, but the guys are also an amazing live show. They are back on tour so if you get to see them make sure to say hi as they always hang out with their fans after the show. If you're looking for a great album with a lot of fun tracks from a group of dedicated and talented musicians then this is the album for you!
