Run Dan Run releases "Normal" TODAY!

Run Dan Run sees national release of sophomore
full-length, Normal, today via Hearts and Plugs!

"Surpassing any chance of a sophomore slump, Run Dan Run has taken the time since their 2007 full length debut to improve. With Normal, they acheieved the feature album they meant to create, difinitively answering the question, "Who is Run Dan Run?" - Consequence of Sound

Run Dan Run, affectionately known as "RDR," began simply as a recording project amongst two friends, Dan McCurry and Nick Jenkins, in the spring of 2006. After hearing the initial recordings, Ash Hopkins expressed interest in being a part of the project. By the fall of 2006, Run Dan Run made it official as an indie rock band from Charleston, SC, performing regularly throughout the Southeast region.

In the summer of 2007, Run Dan Run released their full-length debut album, Basic Mechanics, and toured the eastern United States from Massachusetts to Mississippi in support of the record. Basic Mechanics first defined the honest, lyrically-driven indie rock that RDR is known for. 

RDR released 27 Coming St., an acoustic EP revealing a disarmingly intimate side of the band in the winter of 2009. The EP was recorded live in a living room, each song being performed only twice with the best take being kept.

Jumping forward to the summer of 2010, Run Dan Run began working on what would be their sophomore release, taking the next year off from touring to focus on recording. This album, titled Normal, picks up where Basic Mechanics left off, exploring darker subject matter over richer arrangements with the polished sound of a well-seasoned band. Normal both sounds and feels like an album, complete and comfortable in its skin.
