Long Distance Runner Announce 'Shadow' Album Release Tour

Long Distance Runner Announce 'Shadow' Album Release Tour

Chris Cudby / Monday 27th June, 2022 12:01PM

Based in Tāmaki Makaurau and Ōtepoti, sonic bruisers Long Distance Runner's third studio album Shadow is out this month via Sunreturn, launching with a six date tour taking them all across Aotearoa in July and September. The uncompromisingly cacophonous four-piece of Simon Oswald, Jono Glenday, Sam Cussen and Sam Shepherd have gifted fans new single 'On/Off', a charred tumbleweed of distortion drenched guitar, muscular bass, hammering percussion and unholy yowls that gradually escalates in tension towards a scorched earth finale...

"Lyrically On/Off is about the expression of negative emotions and the negative aspect of its repression... Often when discussing heavy music people tend to say things like "oh I don't like it, 'it makes me angry' etc. But for me it's a cathartic expression of these negative emotions. Through music I can turn them on or off. I can express them, I can exhaust them and I can take away their power." - Simon Oslward
