Destroy The Runner reunite, crowdfunding new EP

Monday, May 02, 2016 12:11 PM PT

California metalcore/post-hardcore band Destroy The Runner has announced plans to release a new EP this year, six years after breaking up. The recorded lineup will feature the group's four original members - Kyle Setter, Nick Maldonado, Marc Kohlbry and Duane Reed. Destroy The Runner had this to say:

"While we were working on our third release, a lot of factors got in the way, and ultimately led to the band's indefinite hiatus. We weren't certain if we'd ever make another record together again, but we knew that things didn't end the way we wanted them to.

"Over the years that followed the release of Saints, the band faced obstacles that led to both member changes and ultimately to the hiatus. The changing music industry. The health of the band as a group. Differences of opinion regarding artistic direction. The need for financially sustainable careers. The pursuit of different goals such as education and family. But despite these things, the desire to make music together never left.

"Now that we've had time to focus on these things - and as we approach the 10-year anniversary of Saints - the four of us decided that now would be the perfect time to make music together again. We've already started the writing process, and couldn't be more excited about how things are coming together."

The band hopes to raise $12,000 for the new EP. If you're interested in contributing, you can do so here.
