Comprised of Lochlan Watt (host of The Racket on triple j) and guitarist/producer Mike Deslandes (YLVA/High Tension), R U N ‘s unique blend of extreme metal, hardcore and post-rock has seen them win early praise with fans and critics alike. The group teased the project over the past week by sharing the EP track-by-track via various websites – on Tuesday, we had the pleasure of premiering the brutal ‘Find Peace’ – with each track forming the name of the EP For You Will Never Find Peace Within Your Quiet.
The project will be accompanied by a physical ‘pressing’ that sees R U N skip out on the vinyl to offer fans with a 12″ artwork sleeve, featuring five prints from Patrick Galvin to represent each track inside. The band’s Lochlan Watt elaborated on this in a statement released today, declaring the physical copy as an ‘experiment’ to lessen their load on the environment.
“With where R U N has landed, we feel as though we have been handed a once in a lifetime opportunity to try out new things above the unstable ground we all find ourselves now navigating. I cherish my old CD collection, and I love supporting my friends and bands I like by buying their records, but I also almost never listen to any music this way anymore…
“As such the physical product for For You Will Never Find Peace Within Your Quiet will slot perfectly into your existing 12” collection, yet you won’t be able to listen to it. You will, however, be able to open the folding cover to pore over Patrick Galvin’s incredible artwork, with high quality full sized prints of all five songs and their lyrics on the inside, while you listen to the record via your preferred digital service. It being a purely cardboard creation gives us a lot of flexibility, and the size of this first ‘pressing’ will be determined by the demand. We’re also cutting Patrick in on the financial side of things here, because we think he deserves it. So, the more of these we sell, the more money all three key artists involved will make.”
