Runner Runner

Runner Runner, a dynamic young band hailing from punk mecca Huntington Beach, CA, have just been signed to the new partnership of EMI Music's Capitol Records, Clear Entertainment/C.E. Music (a new label formed by late night host, David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Inc.), and Jack Ponti's MRV label.

The band, frontman Ryan Ogren, guitarist Nick Bailey, guitarist Peter Munters, bassist Jon Berry and drummer James Ulrich, have over eight-million plays on their MySpace, were named a 2009 Band to Watch by Alternative Press, and have played shows with the likes of Angels & Airwaves, Fall Out Boy and All Time Low.

Veterans to the music industry, bassist Berry was a founding member of the SoCal pop-punk band, Rufio, Ogren was the vocalist/guitarist for New Jersey's Don't Look Down, and Munters, Bailey and Ulrich were members of OC's Over It.

They all came together in 2008 to create what is now Runner Runner. The five members are a combination of skillful songwriting and musicianship, punk-infused intensity and songs with humongous hooks with tremendous potential.

The band is currently recording their self-titled debut album in Los Angeles with producer Dave Darling (Stray Cats, Brian Setzer, Soulive), and plan to tour extensively after their album drops later this summer.

Their first single, "So Obvious," will be released to radio on June 15, 2010.
